Nikon has continued to promote the integrated system of full authority and responsibilities for each product business unit on a global basis since the introduction of its in-house company structure in October 1999. All appreciate a sense of unity and agility thanks to the accomplished in-house company structure, with expanding the business operation among others in China and Asia.
