Fuji Malaysia: Capturing Images since 1934

Fujifilm Holdings Corporation had its beginnings in 1934. It was then known as Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd. and was the primary producer of photographic film in Japan. As the years passed, the Fuji product portfolio diversified to include motion picture and X-ray films. In 1962, Fuji Xerox came onto the scene to provide the Asia-Pacific region with photocopying products and services. Fuji-Xerox is the culmination of a partnership between the Japanese company, Fujifilm, and the American Xerox company, and today stands as the longest running partnership between companies from these two countries. Fuji then cemented its place in the industry of mainstream consumer photography by first being one of the official sponsors of the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics and then making their products available at a cheaper price overseas. This was a decision made possible by the establishment of a film factory in the US. Since then, the name of Fuji has been synonymous with capturing images in both professional and consumer markets.
