Our Profile and Philosophy

Toru Hatano, President

OKI Data is an operating company within the Oki Electric Industry (OKI) Group which has a heritage of pioneering technology in the telecom and printer manufacturing industry for over 130 years. OKI Data develops a range of devices including printers, faxes, multifunction products and related printing solutions. Underpinned by OKI’s corporate philosophy of ‘“enterprising spirit” we constantly seek to offer new and unique products and value to our customers across the world.

Core Competence

Since its foundation, OKI has constantly innovated its portfolio, first moving to information systems and ATMs, before pioneering early digital printers. In 1981, OKI manufactured its page printer, which was the first printer to use an LED light source. This groundbreaking electromechanical technology—since improved and refined—still powers OKI’s color and monochrome printers today.

In recent years we have expanded our business to the signage and graphic arts printing markets by introducing state-of-the-art white and clear toner technology, as well as wide format inkjet printing solutions.

Value Provided by OKI Data

OKI’s essential value goes beyond hardware. We aim to help customers expand their businesses with the cost reductions and productivity efficiencies afforded by our reliable printing solutions. 

To help our customers further increase business efficiency, we will not only provide our highly durable products but will also offer solutions to simplify routine maintenance tasks, saving our customers both time and money.

In the office environment the work style is changing. OKI offers printers and multifunction printers that easily connect to mobile smartphones and tablets, while providing a host of software solutions that streamline document management, digital workflows, knowledge management, and the cloud environment of PaaS and SaaS. Our printers serve as business communication hubs to help customers simply and easily increase their efficiency.

In professional printing—the business of printing itself—we help customers create lucrative new business opportunities and revenue streams by offering products which are compatible with colors, media and processes not possible with conventional printers. These customers can always rely on the highly precise LED output for which OKI is known.

As a Global Corporate Citizen

OKI Data is a global company that was founded in Japan but today has established 71 overseas locations in 39 Countries/Regions, providing products and services to customers in over 100 countries.

With pride and awareness of this fact, we actively engage in social contributions and environmental protections. We ensure regulatory compliance in each country, while continuing our efforts as a good corporate citizen to make a positive, global contribution to society and the planet.
