• Kyocera Corporation reaches 60th anniversary

        • Following the launch of its new brand identity, Kyocera Document Solutions Europe is celebrating the 60th anniversary of its parent company, Kyocera Corporation.

          The organisation was founded in Japan in April 1959 by Dr. Kazuo Inamori, originally named Kyoto Ceramic Co. with just 28 members of staff. After merging with four affiliates in 1982, the company took on the name of Kyocera Corporation, which it maintains today. In 2019, Kyocera Corporation now boasts over 70,000 employees across the globe. 

          Beginning with its traditional business in ceramics, the organisation has diversified over its many years to provide a range of products and services including automotive units, electronic devices, solar power generating systems and document solutions, among others. The corporation today offers a wide variety of products and components that can be found in all different kinds of environments, from supercomputers to the International Space Station and NASA’s Mars Rovers. Using over 200 different types of fine ceramics, the group has pioneered numerous breakthroughs and driven innovation throughout countless industries.

          Kyocera Document Solutions Inc. plays a key role within the group under the banner of document solutions. Kyocera Corporation entered the workplace solutions industry through its acquisition of Mita Industrial Co. in 2000, creating Kyocera Mita Corporation. In 2012, the division rebranded under the name Kyocera Document Solutions to consolidate their position as pioneering leaders in the industry at a global level.

          The organisation takes great pride in its heritage, sharing expert knowledge with customers around the world within various industries to make the planet a more efficient and environmentally friendly place that will ensure sustainable growth for all in the present and for years to come.

          Kyocera Document Solutions Europe is one of the company’s leading regional headquarters, providing the European region with hardware and software solutions to drive efficiency within the business environment.

          Kyocera works in full alignment with its company philosophy, established by Dr. Inamori. In it, he explains that “Kyocera’s history is a story of doing what no one else had dared to do, and of opening roads where no one had ventured before.” By pursuing the corporate motto of “Respect the divine and love people”, the company seeks to provide ground-breaking technology which can make the world a better and more sustainable place.

          The past 60 years of Kyocera have been marked by the company’s business growth and determination to succeed in each of the group’s many industries of operation. The future is bright for Kyocera as the company embraces the challenges ahead, adapting to the modern world full of emerging technologies such as robotics, Internet of Things, 5G, Artificial Intelligence, and cloud computing.
