Fujikura Ltd. (株式会社フジクラ Fujikura Kabushiki-gaisha) is a global, Tokyo-based electrical equipment manufacturing company, developing and manufacturing power and telecommunication systems products, including devices for optical fibres, such as cutters and splicers.

Fujikura was founded by Zenpachi Fujikura when he began manufacturing silk and cotton insulated winding wires in 1885. In 1910 Fujikura Electric Wire Corporation was established with Tomekichi Fujikura, Zenpachi's younger brother, acting as the company's representative.[3] Over the years the company expanded both in Japan and overseas and as of 2013 the company had subsidiaries across Europe, Asia, North and South America and North Africa.[4]

The company is listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the Nikkei 225 stock index.[5]

In February 2014 the company received an order of special large core fibers from Tokyo University for the Subaru Telescope located on Mauna Kea, Hawaii.[6]
