Our Hosa Origin Story
At just 25, Sho Sato moved to the U.S. from Japan with big dreams, but only a few dollars to his name. In 1984, he founded Hosa with a borrowed desk and telephone, and turned it into one of the most recognizable companies in the music and professional audio industries.
After three decades of hard work and dedication, Sato has passed the torch to his daughter, Mayumi Allison. Her main goal—and that of the entire Hosa team—is to continue to live up to the mission of the company: To create reliable connectivity solutions with unparalleled service, passion, and care.
What Moves Us
Throughout the years, Hosa has been fortunate to work alongside, partner with, and sponsor a diverse list of causes, organizations, and events. Just as we’re proud to provide the connections that move you, we wanted to share the connections that move us. Please join us in supporting the organizations below.
