Canon announces corporate name change of Toshiba Canada Medical Systems Limited to Canon Medical Systems Canada Limited

MARKHAM, ON March 1, 2018—Canon Inc. and Canon Medical Systems Canada Limited today announced the official corporate name (trade name) change of Canon Group Company Toshiba Canada Medical Systems Limited to Canon Medical Systems Canada Limited (hereafter referred to as Canon Medical Systems).

Since joining the Canon Group in December 2016, Canon Medical Systems has been undertaking the procedures for obtaining regulatory approval for integration with the Canon Group and change of the company name under the relevant national or regional laws concerning pharmaceuticals and medical devices. Canon announced that such procedures have been completed, and that the change of the company name enters into effect today.

Since its establishment in 1930, Canon Medical Systems has introduced a number of "world's first" and "first-in-Japan" medical systems in cooperation with its customers worldwide. With its sales and service network, Canon Medical Systems conducts business globally, providing diagnostic imaging systems to around 140 countries and regions.

Canon Inc. first entered the medical equipment business in 1940 with the development of the first indirect X-ray camera produced in Japan and, utilizing its advanced imaging technologies, currently produces such equipment as digital X-ray imaging systems and OCT ophthalmic devices. Since its founding, the Company has maintained a strong commitment to the medical equipment business, and will further strengthen the business with the aim of contributing to a safe and secure society.

Through its integration with the Canon Group, Canon Medical Systems—in the spirit of the Canon Group corporate philosophy of “kyosei” and its own management slogan of “Made for Life” (Made for Partnerships, Made for Patients, Made for You.)—will continue to expand in order to accelerate the growth of the Canon Group’s medical equipment business and contribute to better healthcare throughout the world.
