The roots of Lite-On IT lie in Taipei, Taiwan, where Lite-On Electronics Inc. was founded in 1975. Back then the core business consisted of production of clock-display LEDs. Because LED (Light Emitting Diode) formed the mainstay of Lite-On in the early years, the English word "Light" inspired the corporate name.
In the twenty years that followed, Lite-On gradually expanded its business throughout the Asian Pacific region to become a respected Taiwanese manufacturer with various established subsidiaries that form Lite-On Group today.
In the years to follow, Lite-On IT continued its growth in the ODD business, by setting extensive distribution networks in the United States and Europe. With the introduction of more ODD products, like CD-RW, DVD-ROM, COMBO, DVD-RW, and the next generation Blu-ray drives, Lite-On IT increased its production from 1 million drives per month in 1999, to average 5 million drives per month in 2005. Lite-On continued to expand its market position.
