The company’s roots date back to 1973 when it established a joint venture, Repco Canon in Melbourne focussed on the photocopier business.
In 1978, after five years of growth, Canon Australia was established and shortly after relocated its headquarters to Sydney, where it began to manage all Canon products, expanding to imaging, which included cameras and printers.
The company later added to its operations Canon New Zealand and Canon Business Services, which has come to be known as Canon Oceania. Today, Canon Oceania Group employs 2,400 people across 22 locations.
Commenting on the 50th anniversary, Kotaro Fukushima, Managing Director of Canon Oceania, said: “As an organisation, we want to grow alongside our communities – when they thrive, we do too. Celebrating Canon’s 50th year in Oceania is the perfect backdrop against which to honour those who have shared in our journey. Today, I am honoured to lead a company with a proud history. Building on the hard work of our predecessors, we are determined to focus our efforts to continue creating a brighter future.”
Canon has several small-scale yet significant projects planned throughout the year to express gratitude for the 50 years of strong relationships with stakeholders and customers.
