Over the course of the past 30 years, we have established ourselves as one of the leading Point of Sale (POS) printer companies in America, providing customers with truly innovative products that address the needs of the POS market. Also, we have enjoyed strong growth by developing superior audio components for the automotive, communications, and medical markets,” said Takayuki “Blues” Aoki, president of Star Micronics America. Star Micronics America has grown from a single office in New York, NY to a national company with regional offices throughout the United States supporting its North American headquarters in Edison, NJ.
