Fuji Electric Co., Ltd. (富士電機ホールディングス株式会社 Fuji Denki Hōrudingsu Kabushiki-gaisha?, TYO: 6504), operating under the brand name FE, is a Japanese holding company that retains manufacturing companies of pressure transmitters, flowmeters, gas analyzers, controllers, inverters, pumps, generators, ICs, motors, and power equipment.
Fuji Electric was established in 1923 as a capital and technology tie-up between Furukawa Electric, a spinnoff from Furukawa zaibatsu company, and Siemens AG. The name “Fuji” is derived from Furukawa's “Fu” and Siemens' “Ji”, since German pronunciation of Siemens is written jiimensu in Japanese romanization. The characters used to write Mount Fuji were used as ateji.
In 1935, Fuji Electric spun off the telephone department as Fuji Tsushinki (lit. Fuji Communications Equipment, now Fujitsu).
