Fujifilm Acquires Distributor in Australia and New Zealand

Hanimex Name to Stay By David Hague

Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd. has signed an acquisition Agreement with the U.K. based NRG Overseas Investment Ltd., a group company of Ricoh Co., Ltd. to acquire 100% shares of Hanimex Australasia Pty Ltd., the holding company of the Hanimex Group that acts as the distributor for Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd. in Australia and New Zealand. 

For more than 30 years (since 1967), the Hanimex Group has been the distributor of Fujifilms products (excluding graphic arts products)  both in Australia and New Zealand.  Fujis exports to these two countries have been showing a large increase in recent years; particularly, the exports of digital cameras, ?Frontier digital minilabs and other digital printers. Digital image diagnostic systems for medical use have also been recording remarkable growth according to sources in the company. 


Fuji say this acquisition enables the company to develop and carry out its marketing strategies through its new subsidiaries directly in Oceania, in addition to those already existing in North America, South America, Europe and Asia, in unison on a global basis.
