EIZO NANAO CORPORATION established new sales companies in Germany and the United Kingdom in 2011 and started a direct selling system in 2012 to further expand its global business.

“Changing the company name to simply ' EIZO Corporation' will create consistency with the brand name, raise awareness among investors and customers, strengthen competitiveness, and further help grow our business,” said Yoshitaka Jitsumori, president and CEO of EIZO NANAO CORPORATION. “It also signifies that imaging technology is at the core of our business as we continue to expand into specialty fields like medical, graphics, industrial, and entertainment.”
