Epson Australia celebrates four decades of industry leadership

Epson Australia celebrates its 40th anniversary of operations in Australia, marking four decades of leadership in imaging technology.

The company plans to leverage this milestone to continue its legacy and unveil innovative products in large format printing, projectors, office, and industrial printing.

As a wholly owned subsidiary of Seiko Epson Corporation, with over 80 years of Japanese craftsmanship, engineering, and environmental excellence, Epson Australia began its journey in November 1983 in Frenchs Forest, Sydney, with a team of just 20 people.

Throughout its 40-year journey, Epson Australia has led the industry in advancements in print and projection, delivering quality, reliable products and services to Australian customers.

It is also committed to sustainability and focussed on environmental initiatives such as its partnerships with Earth Hour, sponsorship of the Royal Botanic Gardens of Sydney, and transitioning to 100 per cent renewable energy across its operations in Australia and New Zealand.

Craig Heckenberg, managing director of Epson Australia, said, “We are thrilled to commemorate this significant milestone in our company’s history.”

Heckenberg reiterated the team’s hard work and dedication, emphasising their commitment to helping customers maximise product benefits.

“We are very proud of our achievements and success over the last 40 years. As such, I must thank all Epson staff, both past and present, our channel partners and customers for contributing to this success.

“We now focus on the next 40 years and on creating continued growth through providing innovative products and services that make a positive impact to the lives of our customers, their businesses, and their communities.”

Seiko Epson Global President, Mr. Yasunori Ogawa, said, “I would like to congratulate Epson Australia for its 40th anniversary and offer my thanks for the dedication and support of all the employees, partners and customers who have made this possible.

“Epson is committed to achieving sustainability and supporting the community, and no group company embodies this commitment more than Epson Australia. I look forward to working with everyone to achieve even greater success both for Epson Australia and the wider community.”

Epson Australia’s product portfolio includes home and office printers, scanners, thermal receipt printers, projectors, large format printers, industrial print solutions, and software tools. With a team of over 150 people across multiple locations, the company prides itself on delivering nationwide service coverage and remote support capabilities.

Looking ahead, Epson Australia pledges to contribute to environmental protection, collaborate with customers and industries to address societal issues, strive for sustainability, and improve the quality of life.
