Canon in Giessen
Canon Giessen GmbH is the first production site for office machines established by the Canon parent company outside Japan in 1972. The current role of Canon Giessen in the EMEA (European, Middle East & Africa) group is to provide service and support to the European and national sales companies. The core business is based on the 2R + strategy, i.e. Reuse, Recycling incl. repair, with particularly positive contributions to resource conservation, waste avoidance and CO2 emissions reduction. The remanufacturing and maintenance of copier systems and professional printing systems, the repair of high-quality service assemblies and optical products, is therefore a mainstay of the Canon Group’s sustainability strategies. With these recycling activities, a clear signal is given for an effective and efficient implementation of circular processes and end of life solutions, which mean an alternative for the traditional linear economic strategies. In order to perform this function of a central recycling center in Europe, modern logistics concepts are required that make it possible to react efficiently and flexibly to requirements and customer wishes. The quality and environmental management has been successfully certified for many years and is a guarantee for high-quality products and services, as well as the continuous improvements in the environmental performance of the company.
