Delighting Malaysians for 30 Years
Kuala Lumpur (13 February 2017) — Canon Marketing Malaysia marked its 30th anniversary in Malaysia today by kicking off a product showcase here in Mid Valley Megamall for the entire week. As a leader in total imaging solutions, Canon’s product expo showcases a look back at the significant milestones achieved as well as the latest products.
“The celebration of Canon Marketing Malaysia’s 30th anniversary is an exciting time for our company, and we are grateful for all of the local support and encouragement we have received over this journey. We are glad to have been given the opportunity to serve Malaysia, and we hope to continue delighting every Malaysian with our products and services,” said Andrew Koh, President and Chief Executive Officer of Canon Marketing (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.
True to its tradition and corporate philosophy of ‘Kyosei’ — defined by Canon as `all people, regardless of race, religion, or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future’ — the company has pushed the boundaries of progression together with the country.
Committed to establishing good relations not only with customers but also with the community, Canon has always endeavored to bringing imaging products and solutions that will inspire people and businesses worldwide. Through the product expo, Canon’s many products and pursuits can be seen as the company works to provide the best solutions to the community.
“We remain dedicated to bring innovation and advancement to the country and the community; a promise that symbolises our culture — ‘Kyosei’ — here at Canon. Since we arrived here in 1987, we’ve invested time and effort in providing imaging solutions in Malaysia. We were the first to launch the plain paper fax, colour copier, and colour fax machines in Malaysia, as well as introducing the highly popular Bubble Jet Printer,” added Andrew.
The kick off for the product showcase featured the latest and most updated technology from Canon’s product line-up, ranging from the PIXMA Ink Efficient Printer range such as the E470, the Maxify business inkjet printer range such as the MB5470, to the legendary EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR camera, and the latest premium mirrorless flagship model, EOS M5. Canon Ambassador Janna Nick also made a special appearance and greeted fans at the event site.
“Canon Marketing Malaysia remains committed in providing exceptional customer service through total quality management of our products and services. Through the continuous innovation and advancement of our products, we endeavor to provide end-to-end solutions for our customers and business partners, open communications, total staff involvement and collaboration in working with our business partners to achieve total customer satisfaction,” added Andrew.
Over the past 30 years, Canon Marketing Malaysia has evolved from a staff force of only 52 people in 1987 to 600 employees, one head office, seven branches, and a network of more than 3,000 direct channel partners, transforming Canon into a household name in Malaysia.
The company has also been honoured with 12 Putra Brand Awards and multiple Reader’s Digest Awards over the past 17 years in the time that it has been in Malaysia, among many others locally- and internationally- acclaimed titles of recognition. Canon is currently leading the inkjet printer market as the Number 1 brand in Malaysia for 21 years and is the Number 1 laser printer brand for two consecutive years in the market. Canon was voted as the Readers’ Choice for the Best DSLR Camera Brand and Best Inkjet Printer Brand in the HWM + HardwareZone.com Tech Awards for three consecutive years from 2014 to 2016.
