First Sewing Machine Exported by Brother
HA1-B3 (1947)

Brother was quick to resume the production of sewing machines, which was interrupted during World War II, and in 1947, shipped 200 units of the HA1-B3 to Shanghai as directed by the Japanese government. Later, Brother began exporting to the US, Thailand, Brazil, and the Philippines, and eventually attained its ambition of changing Japanese industry from import-based to export-based, which was described in the “Prospectus of Establishment” in 1932.
