Fujifilm UK

As part of the council’s ‘Open for Business’ programme the Mayor, Dave Hodgson, visited Fujifilm UK Ltd on, Wednesday 9th March, to meet their senior management team and discover more about one of the borough’s key employers and best kept secrets!

 

On the day, Bedford Borough Council’s Chief Executive, Philip Simpkins, also accompanied the Mayor as they were greeted by Fujifilm UK’s Managing Director, Mr Matsushita.

 

Mayor Dave Hodgson said: “When I talk to people about the major firms located here in Bedford Borough, I am always struck by the fact that the presence of Fujifilm UK’s Head Office does not seem to be widely known.  Bedford Borough boasts businesses that would be the envy of any town in the country.  Such businesses are the engine room of the borough’s economy, providing employment in many sectors and generating much of Bedford’s economic output. 

 

We work extremely hard to attract new businesses into the area and help foster links with the surrounding community. However, it is also vital that we work with existing businesses such as Fujifilm UK to help them thrive within the borough, and we will continue to do so.”

 

Fujifilm UK is a subsidiary of Fujifilm Corporation in Tokyo. The company experienced a large expansion in the 1990's and now has its UK headquarters in St. Martins Way, Bedford.  The company has just over 400 staff, and covers five main business domains from Fujifilm digital cameras and photo-processing, to Graphics systems, Medical, and Recording media plus an additional office in London for the Motion Picture division. With a special blend of the best of British and Japanese business cultures, Fujifilm has an eclectic mix which draws on the best traditions of both countries.
