Epson can trace its roots back to a Japanese clockmaker, Hisao Yamazaki, when he began to make clock parts in 1942 for the company that would one day become Seiko.
Seiko Epson Corporation, known more commonly as Epson, is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of computer parts, printers, and imagining-related equipment.
The company has a great number of subsidiaries around the world that manufacture printers, printer cartridges, and ink, scanners, computers, home theater equipment, robots, industrial automation, cash registers, and more.
Epson is one of three core companies of the Seiko Group, a name traditionally known for manufacturing timepieces since its founding.
Since 2016, Epson has been producing Smart Glasses, with the most popular model used in combination with drones.
The robotic market is in particularly high demand at this time and is expected to grow substantially within the next 5 years.
Smart Glasses are also expected to see substantial growth through 2025.
In November 2021, Epson signed with Gibson Engineering to be an official distributor of Epson Robots automation solutions.
Epson maintains a corporate office in North America in Los Alamitos, California.
