The world's largest supply platform for sources of shortages and hard-to-find parts
Supplier Introduction
FUTABA CORPORATION was established in 1948 as a manufacturer and seller of receiver vacuum tubes. Utilizing vacuum tube technology, Futaba began manufacturing vacuum fluorescent displays. In 1962, Futaba began producing radio control equipment as well as press die set components, establishing what still remains as two of the company's primary divisions.

This was followed by the development of mold base components and the more recent addition of VFD modules to complete the lineup of Futaba's major products.

Firmly embracing the principle of manufacturing each component in-house, Futaba creates everything from its own tools to its own manufacturing facilities.
