Epson Australia has achieved numerous milestones over the last 40 years which include currently being recognised as the number one brand in Australia for projectors, large format printers, thermal receipt printers and consumer ink tank printers.

Epson Australia MD Craig Heckenberg said, “We are thrilled to commemorate this significant milestone in our company's history.”

Epson Australia is a wholly owned subsidiary of Seiko Epson Corporation that represents over 80 years of Japanese craftmanship, engineering and environmental excellence. The company started out in November of 1983, with a small team of 20 people in the suburb of Frenchs Forest on the northern beaches of Sydney.

Since then, the company has been at the forefront of advancements in print and projection, delivering the highest quality, reliability and service to its Australian customers.

Throughout the journey, Epson Australia has played a central role in transforming industry and improving the way people and businesses communicate their creativity, craftmanship, ideas and messages.

The company’s recent environmental initiatives include partnering with EARTH HOUR, the world’s biggest movement to protect our planet, sponsoring the Royal Botanic Gardens of Sydney and transitioning to 100% renewable energy across its entire operation in Australia and New Zealand.

Seiko Epson Global President, Mr Yasunori Ogawa said, “I would like to congratulate Epson Australia for their 40th anniversary and offer my thanks for the dedication and support of all the employees, partners and customers who have made this possible. Epson is committed to achieving sustainability and supporting the community and no group company embodies this commitment more than Epson Australia. I look forward to working with everyone to achieve even greater success both for Epson Australia and the wider community.”

These achievements underscore the company's commitment to excellence and its pivotal role in driving innovation and growth in Australia.

“We are very proud of our achievements and success over the last 40 years. As such, I must thank all Epson staff both past and present, our channel partners and customers for contributing to this success. We now focus on the next 40 years and on creating continued growth through providing innovative products and services that make a positive impact to the lives of our customers, their businesses, and their communities,” said Craig Heckenberg.

Today, the company’s product portfolio consists of home and office printers, scanners, thermal receipt printers, projectors, large format printers, industrial print solutions and a wide range of software tools that enhance the productivity and usability of its products and provide more value to customers.

The company has also expanded its team to over 150 people across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Auckland with offices and showrooms in each location. As such, its nationwide service coverage and remote support capabilities ensure minimal disruption and quicker turnaround times, even in remote locations.

Craig Heckenberg concluded, “Again, it’s the hard work and dedication of our team, their proven track record of providing the highest level of customer service and the support from our customers which has led to our success. Whether it be at home or work, we pride ourselves on helping our customers get the most out of our products and services and to be there for them when it really matters. Looking ahead, we have a lot more to accomplish and we pledge to continue to play our part to protect the environment by working with our customers and industry to help solve societal issues, strive for sustainability and improve quality of life.”
