President's Message

Toshio Takiguchi

Thank you for using our products and services. I hope this message finds you well.

As has already been reported, on December 19, after Canon obtained clearance from the competition authorities of each country and region in which it submitted an application, Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation (Toshiba Medical) became a subsidiary of the Canon Group. Canon anticipates that Toshiba Medical will continue its business activities while maintaining a high degree of autonomy in order to further develop its business. Canon and Toshiba Medical will continue to discuss detailed business strategies. However, in the same manner as in the past, Toshiba Medical will remain committed to contributing to healthcare worldwide under the slogan "Made for Life", while aiming to expand and achieve continued growth.

With regard to the start of production in Russia, Toshiba Medical is currently involved in the final approval process, and production will begin after regulatory approval is obtained. In addition, Toshiba Medical will establish the Yokohama Development Center in February 2017 to conduct various types of innovative development aimed at promoting further business growth and achieving a better future. Integration with the Canon Group will help Toshiba Medical realize its bright prospects.

We will continue to make every effort to provide products that amaze and impress our customers. Your high expectations and valuable suggestions are greatly appreciated.

In closing, I would like to express my best wishes to you for success in the coming year.

Made For life
