CEO Message

Creating value for the world
To be a company and brand that is loved by more and more people

代表取締役 兼 CEO杉本 繁実

OM Digital Solutions is driven by the desire to ‘challenge ourselves to create new products that did not exist in the world and bring joy to our customers’. Contributing to society through a range of cameras, voice recorders and binocular products since its time as the imaging business of its predecessor, Olympus Corporation.

The company retained its technological capabilities that have been developed over time through the creation and manufacture of precision instruments, as well as an integrated sales and marketing approach. This approach is carried out by our employees who have a love and understanding of our business and products. We are incredibly proud of our global human resources who have a high level of technology knowledge equally matched with customer perspective, which has enabled us to deliver products that did not exist in the world, such as our unique compact and lightweight Micro Four Thirds system cameras. Our continual innovation has been made possible by our fans who share the same values that we provide. In addition to our manufacturing capabilities, diverse global human resources, and close ties to our customers; we believe our organizational structure at OM Digital Solutions has improved our decision-making and actioning capabilities, creating a strength that we gained through our carve-out and independence.

In October 2021 we announced the change of brand name from ‘Olympus’ to ‘OM SYSTEM’, which has been our favorite brand name for many years. ‘OM’ represents our origin and identity, embodying our attitude of always ‘challenging convention and creating new things’. It is also a declaration that we will continue to evolve and take on new challenges as a new company, while respecting the history and spirit of Olympus. We will continue to enhance the value and develop the OM SYSTEM brand for more customers to deeply love.

Our purpose is ‘to enrich people’s lives’.

代表取締役 兼 CEO杉本 繁実

The purpose of OM Digital Solutions is ‘to enrich people’s lives’, and to achieve this a focus on ‘what only we can do’ is essential. We hope to fulfill our purpose by providing he world with compact, lightweight, and durable cameras and super-telephoto lenses that can only be developed and manufactured by our company.

With this vision in mind, we are working on two business areas. The first is the outdoor field, with which we have always had a strong affinity due to the features and values of our products, which can be described as ‘compact, lightweight and durable’. This is a strength of our business and products and a core value of products which we are convinced are well suited to enhance the value of life outdoors. Therefore, we will develop OM SYSTEM into a strong brand in the outdoor market. The focus on this target market is not limited to mountain climbing and camping, but also includes everyday activities like stepping outside to take photos of flowers blooming by the side of the road or the sky overhead. This action of getting in touch with nature through our products can expand the world of our customers and is the driving force behind the business.

The second business area is to develop solutions that contribute to solving business and societal challenges by leveraging our technological assets that we have created. To support this business area, we plan to expand our system and human resources to deliver against our goal. For us this is a new challenge, but as a leader, I am very much looking forward to seeing what kind of business can develop.

We want to build a future with our stakeholders.

In order to fulfill our purpose, we need more people to love OM Digital Solutions as a company and OM SYSTEM as a brand. To this end, we are also strengthening our initiatives related to the SDGs, such as community revitalization through photography and community activities in Hachioji City, where our headquarters is located.

We are still a newly independent organization, but we are determined to move forward together with our customers, employees, business partners, local communities, and all other stakeholders, to build our future. We sincerely appreciate your continued support and appreciation for the activities of OM Digital Solutions.
