Evolving from Seiko – best known as one of the world’s foremost watchmakers – to the current position at the forefront of digital imaging technology, Epson has always remained true to their roots.
During the Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964, groundbreaking new Seiko electronic timing equipment was used for the first time, enabling race results to be printed out. Shortly after this innovation, Epson was formed. The ‘Epson’ name was derived from the idea of the company being the offspring (”SON”) of the EP-101, the world’s smallest electronic printer (EP).
Epson Europe BV was established in Amsterdam during 1990, and became the European headquarters of Japan-based Seiko Epson Corporation. Since then, the network has continued to expand throughout Europe, Middle-East, Russia and Africa, meeting the particular needs of the customers in their own local markets.
