Aiwa brand revived by Japanese contract manufacturer

Towada Audio purchases dormant audiovisual products maker from Sony

TOKYO -- A Japanese electronics manufacturing service company is breathing new life into the Aiwa brand, reviving a once-beloved household name known for making high-quality audiovisual products. 

Sony has sold the right to use the brand name to a Japanese company engaged in electronics contract manufacturing. The company will start selling products such as music players and 4K TVs under the Aiwa brand at home and abroad this autumn. The new merchandise will be manufactured in China, at least for now.
