TOKYO , May 18, 2022 (press release) –

Special website to trace the company’s philosophy and history

Seiko Epson Corporation (TSE: 6724, “Epson”), celebrating its 80th year in business, is set to open Epson Museum Suwa at its corporate Head Office in Suwa, Nagano, in Japan. The two-part museum, which consists of a renovated Monozukuri Museum and a new Memorial Hall, will give visitors a chance to learn about Epson’s history and products from the past. Memorial Hall is housed in what was the original administrative building, construction of which was completed in October 1945. This recently renovated historic building will be open to the public from today.

Epson’s predecessor, Daiwa Kogyo, Ltd., was founded in May 1942. Over the ensuing eight decades, the company evolved while passing on its DNA as an innovator and manufacturer. Refining the micromachining and precision processing technologies Epson developed for watches and deploying them in other areas are what fueled the company’s growth.

Exhibits in Memorial Hall cover the period to the 1970s, the time during which the building was actually used. From the technology and skills that go into mechanical watches, to the world’s first quartz watch, to the compact EP-101 digital printer from which the Epson brand name is derived, visitors will be given a retrospective look at the efficient, compact, and precision technologies that Epson has developed since its founding. 

Visitors to Epson Museum Suwa can tour both the Monozukuri Museum and Memorial Hall.

We will simultaneously open an 80th anniversary website to trace the company’s philosophy and history since its founding.
