J.S.T. = Japanese Solderless Terminals
As our company name implies, Solderless Terminal, has real significance. When JST was established in 1957, we were Japan’s first manufacturer and distributor of Solderless Terminals. Our founder Mr. Teiji Takahashi named it as Acchaku-Tanshi, which is used in Japanese Industrial Standard, JIS.
JST’s technology of electrical connections, acquired by mass-production of Solderless Terminals, has continued to evolve dynamically, thanks to the development of the electronics industry in Japan.
The same technology has been used for chain terminals and diversified connectors as well as wire terminating tools and machines. Many of the products that we make connectors for have been made more and more compact over the years.
