“Our tagline Delighting You Always is not just for our clients and customers,” Canon President & CEO Alan Chng said. “It is also for our partners whose continued support has boosted the steady growth and expansion of our Philippine operations. Night of Delight is our way of saying ‘thank you’.”

Night of Delight was a grand event hosted by Canon held last night at the Harbor Tent, Sofitel Philippine Plaza to mark its 15 years in the Philippines. The exclusive guests included friends and partners from the media, dealers, sponsors and other companies, organizations and individuals who have been instrumental in Canon’s success as the digital imaging leader over the years.

During the event, Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) Director General Lilia de Lima delivered the keynote speech while Canon Asia Marketing Group President & CEO Hideki Ozawa and Japanese Ambassador to the Philippines Toshinao Urabe commended the company for achieving this milestone.

Together with Miss Earth 2012 pageant winners, the event was star-studded with appearances by endorsers and local celebrities Piolo Pascual and Alodia Gosiengfiao who graced the appreciation night for Canon’s business partners.

In President Aquino’s congratulatory letter to the company it reads, “you have in your employ hundreds of Filipinos nationwide and your operations have been complemented by the dedication and creativity of our nation’s workforce and by the Philippines’ favorable business environment. We thank you for your enthusiasm to take part in our country’s revitalization as well as your continued optimism in our future.”

Established locally in 1996, Canon’s operations in the country are considered among the main drivers in the Japanese multinational’s impressive growth in Asia. In the Philippines, Canon operates three units: Canon Information Technologies which is one of the largest research and development facility outside Japan; Canon Business Machines, a new manufacturing company focused on the production of laser printers and tools for an optimized production system; and Canon Marketing (Philippines) Inc., a subsidiary of Canon in Asia and the flagship business unit responsible for the extensive product line of input and output devices including digital cameras.

Since it began operations, Canon Marketing (Philippines) Inc. has consistently displayed double-digit growth and now caters to a wide range of clientele– multi-million dollar companies, start-up entrepreneurs to professional and amateur users from all over the country.

Canon Marketing (Philippines) has established itself as a socially responsible corporate citizen with advocacy campaigns such as Canon GreenNation, Canon Project Rebuild, Print for Smiles and Reams of Hope, among other socio-civic projects.
