Creating our next 100
years with light

What Nikon has always cherished is “Trustworthiness and Creativity”, our corporate philosophy. This will remain unchanged in the future.

AI and robotics have begun to spread rapidly throughout our lives and industry, taking our society through a huge evolution. About five hundred million years ago, creatures evolved the sensory organ called the “eye”, resulting in an explosive increase in new species. The optical technologies that Nikon has been refining since it was established can be critical technologies, cooperating with AI, to support industry and social evolution by evolving to become the “eyes” of all the products surrounding us. Nikon’s role will increasingly grow as we advance into the future.

“Unlock the future with the power of light”
This phrase represents our commitment to take important steps toward a better future with light. The current restructuring we are conducting includes preparations in diverse fields for new growth, and the inauguration of the Precision Components & Modules Business that delivers solutions by utilizing our key strengths such as optical technologies is one of these preparations.

By providing diverse products, services and solutions, we will continue to be a brand in which everyone can feel “Trustworthiness and Creativity”. This is our mission.
