One of the biggest camera companies in the business is ceasing operations in Malaysia early next year on January 1, . Nikon’s last day of operations will be end of this year on December 31. I gotta be honest, this was not expected.
Nikon Corporation is a multinational corporation headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, and a world leader in optics and imaging through our innovative products, including cameras, binoculars, microscopes and measurement instruments, along with optical technologies for application in various fields such as medicine and optometry.
Correct me if I’m wrong but Nikon is like Top 3 in the camera business so it was surprising that the Malaysian branch of company is closing down. I know companies nowadays are struggling during Covid-19 but I would never expected Nikon would even be closing down.
But Covid-19 is not the No. 1 why the company is ceasing operations. The camera company is closing down under a proposed restructuring which will see the camera manufacturer appoint two business partners to manage the marketing, sales and aftersales services on behalf of Nikon in Malaysia.
“For the imaging business, Futuromic Photo AV Sdn Bhd will be our authorised distributor. For the industrial metrology business, QES (Asia-Pacific) Sdn Bhd will continue to be our authorised distributor.
“Nikon is committed and will continue to provide products and services that meet customers’ needs and expectations in the Malaysian market and throughout the world,” Nikon Malaysia said in a press statement.
Nikon Malaysia runs its business in the country from its office at the Jaya One commercial centre along Jalan Universiti in Petaling Jaya, Selangor besides another branch along Jalan Lenggong in Jelutong, Penang.
