Message from President

We are committed to contribute to the development of the optics industry by leveraging our unique technologies to create new values for optical materials.

Our company was established in 1974 as Optron Inc. for the purpose of mass-producing artificial fluorite. Since then, we have expanded our business to the field of evaporation (vapor deposition) materials for optics use and changed our company name to Canon Optron, Inc. We have been providing products and services for a wide range of applications in response to customer needs, including various types of evaporation materials, crystal materials, and lens processing.

At present, Canon Optron is working to expand its business domain not only in the optical industry but also in a wider range of fields by further evolving the know-how and unique technologies we have cultivated over many years as a materials manufacturer. Under the slogan “Building the future with chemistry and materials,” we will continue to flexibly respond to global trends and customer needs, and contribute to the realization of a sustainable world by continuing to create value in different dimensions with materials.

As a member of the Canon Group, we are achieving a company full of vitality with human resources who are willing to take on new challenges without being bound by preconceived ideas, based on the San-ji spirit of “Self-motivation, Self-governance, and Self-awareness,” under the corporate philosophy of kyosei (living and working together for the common good).
We also strive to contribute to the local community while giving consideration to health, safety, and the natural environment in our corporate activities.

Thank you for your kind understanding and support.

HIROSHI OKU, President
