Subject: [CR]Nitto History?

Was thinking about it the other day and realized that I don't know much about the history of Nitto and it's products. It seems like they have always been around, but when did they begin making parts. I've seen early stuff that copied Cinelli, etc. I have early BIA parts from the 70's and items from the 80's. I have a dynamic stem that looks like it dates from the 70's... Does anyone have any links or info on the company's actual history?

I think responding to the list would be appropriate for this post as to generate discussion and information.

Thanks.
