NEVER STOP providing innovative solutions to social issues
FUJIFILM Holdings is a holding company for two operating companies—FUJIFILM Corporation and FUJIFILM Business Innovation Corporation. Responding to far-reaching changes in our legacy business environment, notably the rise of digital photography and corresponding decline in use of photographic film, FUJIFILM has taken significant steps to transform our business structure and focus our investments to put the company in a much stronger competitive position. Today, our renewed focus also takes on the challenge of providing solutions to a wide variety of social issues in the fields of Healthcare, Materials, Business Innovation, and Photo Imaging.
In the attractive growth segment of Healthcare we have dedicated tremendous effort and resources to provide Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment solutions to help end the COVID-19 pandemic as quickly as possible. For example, Fujifilm supplies a gene-detecting reagent that enables even faster PCR testing, and offers point-of-care ultrasound systems and mobile X-ray diagnostic equipment that enable rapid diagnosis and treatment. We also support our industry partners in manufacturing COVID-19 vaccine candidates, and advancing the development and manufacturing of Avigan Tablets as a therapeutic drug candidate.
Furthermore, on April 1, 2021, we welcomed the diagnostic imaging-related business of Hitachi, Ltd. and established a new company, FUJIFILM Healthcare. A wide-ranging lineup of diagnostic equipment, including CT and MRI equipment, is now connected with FUJIFILM’s medical imaging information systems, allowing us to support clinicians in making more accurate diagnoses by applying cutting-edge image processing and AI technologies.
In the Business Innovation field, Fuji Xerox changed its corporate name to FUJIFILM Business Innovation in April 2021. The new corporate name embraces our commitment to “continuously bring change to business as a FUJIFILM Group company.” FUJIFILM Business Innovation will expand its operations beyond the Asia-Pacific region to encompass the entire world, and will utilize AI and internet of things (IoT) technologies to provide even more innovative products and services to a wide variety of businesses.
For over a year, humanity has been facing an unforeseen pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus. And beyond the pandemic, our world continues to face numerous difficult social and environmental issues, including the challenge of a changing climate. FUJIFILM is committed to working together with our group companies as an “All-Fujifilm Entity,” and we will NEVER STOP taking on challenges to build a safer, stronger, more connected and more resilient future.
