About us

Our Legacy and Foundation

We’re a leading technology company, founded in Japan in 1937, and we’re dedicated to helping people reimagine and push the boundaries of what is possible through imaging.

We employ over 182,000 people in marketing and manufacturing facilities across Japan, the Americas, Europe, Asia and Oceania. Kyosei is our corporate philosophy and lies at the heart of our brand, business and sponsorship activities. Kyosei is a Japanese word that means living and working together for the common good – a principle that is embraced by all Canon employees. It shapes our mission and our values, the way we treat our people and conduct our business.
