In 1966 the Japanese Standard Radio Corp. and the US-american companies Marantz have started a feature.

In 1975 renaming from Standard Radio Corp to Marantz Japan Inc.

In the 1980es STANDARD / Marantz have manufactured the most legendary STANDARD RADIOS, like C-500, C-5200, C-55 and C-528.

Up from 1996 STANDARD RADIOs got more and more special featers and got more and more expensive while other manufactures started to build low-price-radios.

In 1998 STANDARD was bought by YAESU.

Later YAESU was bought by MOTOROLA and released again after some years. Today STANDARD is still active in manufacturing radios as "VERTEX STANDARD". But only for maritime and commercial. Some modern radios still wear a STANDARD label. But those "STANDARD"-radios are just YAESU-types with another label like the YAESU FTM-10 = STANDARD FTM-10.
