Connections between TOA Corporation and Takarazuka City

TOA established a production plant in Takarazuka City back in 1962. Presently, our R&D base, "Knowledge Square," continues to thrive in the same area. It serves as a space for diverse individuals and information to converge, fostering co-creation and promptly responding to technological advancements and societal environmental changes. We aim to envision new market values and cultivate new cultures from a global perspective.
Moreover, TOA's products include the disaster prevention community-wide public address system "SUMIRE Disaster Prevention Speaker," adopted by the city. In March 2023, TOA contributed 3 million Japanese yen through the Regional Revitalization Support Tax System (Corporate Version of Hometown Tax Donation Program) to facilitate the purchase of musical instruments for the brass band clubs in all 12 municipal middle schools.
