Olympus Completes Camera Business Transfer
OM Digital Solutions Corporation is the new name of the operation set up by Japan Industrial Partners Inc. to continue the manufacture, marketing and sales of Olympus camera products. The transfer of the camera business from Olympus Corporation to JIP was completed at the start of 2021, and it will be business as usual for OM Digital Solutions, which will continue to make Olympus-branded OM-D and Pen mirrorless Micro Four Thirds cameras, the full range of M.Zuiko Digital lenses, camera accessories, Tough series ruggedised compact cameras, and binoculars. The new company has also taken over the production and distribution of Olympus’s compact digital audio recorders. Manufacturing will remain at the factory in the Dong Nai province of Vietnam, which Olympus established in 2008.
Australian operations have been taken over by OM Digital Solutions Australia Pty Ltd – as a wholly-owned subsidiary of OM Digital Solutions Corporation – which remains headquartered in Macquarie Park, Sydney.
In a press release, OM Digital Solutions Corporation stated, “The launch of this new company brings together a more focused and flexible organisational structure. Moving forward, this will allow the freedom to explore new business opportunities, enabling us to contribute to society with more passion than ever”.
