Canon is a global provider of digital imaging technologies. Founded in Japan in 1937, we employ over 187,000 people in marketing and manufacturing facilities across Japan, the Americas, Europe, Asia and Oceania.
We are utilising our imaging technologies to go beyond the rich line up of our existing products to cultivating new areas of business where our imaging technology can push the boundaries of what is possible. This reaches into satellite development, medical advancements, growing the possibilities of print and industrial equipment and network video cameras, which contribute towards building smart cities. Canon’s core strength in optical and imaging technology is also contributing to advances in astronomy.
By constantly tackling new challenges, we firmly believe that we can uphold our corporate philosophy of “Kyosei” which conveys our dedication to seeing all people, regardless of race, religion or culture, harmoniously living and working together for the common good and to contribute to a prosperous society.
