Dedication to Innovation
The Fujifilm story in Europe is one of lasting growth and transformation, and our company exists today as a successful diversified international corporation with a leading position in many business fields. Fujifilm first made a name for itself as a photographic film manufacturer, setting up a European HQ in Düsseldorf, Germany in 1966. Fujifilm signature green photo film boxes were in stores everywhere, and as production boomed manufacturing was brought to Tilburg, Netherlands, which continues to be the main FUJIFILM Europe manufacturing and logistics hub, and home of R&D and open innovation. Fujifilm consistently evolved over the last century, establishing itself as a market leader in Europe in the business fields of Photo Imaging and Printing, Graphic Systems, Electronic Imaging and Optical Devices, Medical Systems, Industrial Products and Recording Media. Embracing the challenge of a sharp decline in photographic film demand, Fujifilm moved into the new century seeking innovative ways of applying its fundamental proprietary technologies and expertise, and over the last decade the company has taken major steps to transform itself with a particular focus on healthcare. Building upon a history of over 80 years as a medical imaging specialist, Fujifilm now covers the entire patient care pathway from prevention, to diagnosis and treatment, with pharmaceuticals research and development, biopharmaceutical manufacturing and regenerative medicine now part of the unique Fujifilm portfolio. Our innovations over the decades find the company today with both highly specialized healthcare expertise and technologies. Collagen, a core component of photographic film, plays an important role in regenerative medicine and provide Fujifilm the ability to manipulate functional molecules and polymer at its European Research Laboratory which today is fuelling the race to cure cellular-based diseases. Maximising an extraordinary background of innovation, FUJIFILM Europe is also focused on researching developing, manufacturing and delivering a new generation of pharmaceutical products. FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies, operating in Europe from Billingham, U.K., are a world leader in the development and production of market-leading biological drugs, vaccines, active pharmaceutical ingredients and advanced therapies. The potential of Fujifilm’s own pharmaceutical pipeline is also set to be realised Europe in the near future, with novel drugs with unique mechanisms of action set to take the fight to cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and tackle many more unmet medical needs. As our business continues to change and evolve in every sector we operate, FUJIFILM Europe is well positioned for the future and will continue to provide top-quality products and services that contribute to the advancement of culture, science, technology, industry, the environment and society.
