New Canon headquarters comes to fruition
July 25, 2013 by Sarah
This Monday saw a grand opening ceremony here in Melville. The new Canon Americas Headquarters was opened, with the CEO of Canon Inc., Fujio Mitarai, and CEO/president of Canon U.S.A., Joe Adachi, in attendance. Canon has been a presence on Long Island for more than 40 years.
The newly constructed 700,000 square-foot complex, referred to as ‘One Canon Park’, will not only anchor business along the Route 110 corridor but will rejuvenate the business community in the area. In addition to the near 1,500 jobs that Canon provides here, it is estimated that the new headquarters will indirectly result in an additional 10,000 jobs to the region. It will provide a positive impact to the local economy that will particularly benefit small businesses.
Congressman Steve Israel said:
“Canon’s grand opening of its new headquarters in Melville will help strengthen Long Island’s workforce and ensure that Route 110 continues to be a successful business corridor for all Long Islanders.”
Savvy local business owners will no doubt discuss with their local printing company how best to take advantage of these changes and make adjustments to their brochure printings, perhaps also adding new print materials to their advertising campaigns. With change bringing opportunities, local entrepreneurs are likely to want to seize opportunities like this in order to increase their sales.
Melville will join Tokyo and London as one of three headquarters globally, and Canon Americas will be the headquarters for both North and South America. The Melville headquarters includes several environmental and green-living concepts geared around such programs as harvesting and charging electric vehicles.
