"...Shimano unveils the latest in 2014 but still we can not tell you much. There are times technical and commercial respect. However, we anticipate that there are interesting things to talk about in the coming months. Development of projects that have already been said in the past about competitiveness, and is now becoming increasingly take the form of really solid and well established.
And of course the project Shimano not only on the area road racing and mountain biking. There is much to be said for used bikes to get around. Yes, the design team East provides a dedicated team who ride their habit and use the bicycle for their daily activities and will never think to get in the saddle of a racing bike. It is a market that, too. Northern Europe especially, but there is to learn. Even on a day like the day of the presentation in which, due to snow, has given up on any test.
Stay tuned as we will tell you..."

Shimano was founded in 1921 to make fishing rods, Campy got right into the arena from the get go with the 1933 QR lever. By the 1970's, Shimano had caught up.

From some sources we learn that Shozaburo Shimano who founded Shimano Iron Works began with the production of the bicycle freewheel in 1921. I know about the further development and who did what and when but the registration at the Japanese Chamber of Industry indicates a production of "bicycle equipment" when founded as a private company.
