The merger is aimed at greater collaboration between businesses.

Effective January 1, Fujifilm will create a new organization – Fujifilm North America Corporation – which will merge Fujifilm USA and Fujifilm Graphic Systems USA. Fujifilm Canada will become a subsidiary of the new company as of April 1.

“The creation of this unified organization will enable us to build a stronger presence in the North American markets and realize greater collaboration between businesses,” says Ryutaro Hosoda, president of Fujifilm Holdings America Corporation. “Most important, it will allow us to serve our customers even more effectively and efficiently by taking full advantage of the skills and knowledge of our people.”

Fujifilm North America will bring together five operating divisions: photo imaging products including digital photo processing equipment and services supplying commercial and consumer customers; graphic systems products and services supplying the printing industry; consumer digital cameras; motion picture films; and the Canada Division (operating as Fujifilm Canada) which markets multiple Fujifilm products.
