Canon celebrates 20 years in NZ

09 Nov 2009

With more than 300 employees, Country Manager Mike Johnston said that the uptake of business-to-business Canon products has been exciting since the company opened its first New Zealand in 1989.

“On the business solutions side of the company we have moved from simply supplying photocopiers and printers to offering integrated business solutions that have helped many NZ companies, government and tertiary organisations become more efficient and productive,” he said.

He said the success of the company is about more than just the products.

“Our success can also be attributed to the people who make it a reality and the Kiwi attitude to embrace new technology,” he said.

He added that staff played a significant role in the success and said, “We have fantastic people working at Canon New Zealand and their talent and commitment has been crucial to the ongoing success of the company.”

Canon celebrated its anniversary with a day at the Melbourne Cup last week.
