Canon Ireland


Canon is a world-leading innovator and provider of imaging and information technology solutions for the home and office environments. Only a few companies serve both business and consumer markets and Canon is exceptional in that we are a significant player in each.


Canon Ireland is the Irish operation for the global company - Canon Inc. - based in Tokyo, Japan.  Canon products have been marketed in Ireland since 1978 - in the Republic of Ireland, Canon (Irl) Business Equipment Ltd is a registered Irish company, while in Northern Ireland the trading company is called Canon (UK) Ltd.

In Ireland Canon operates from purpose-built state of the art headquarters in Citywest Business Park, Dublin and employs approximately 50 people.  Canon Ireland prides itself on being a highly customer-focused company which supplies not just innovative products but also the highest level of service and IT support and consulting. This approach has led to the Canon brand being leader in many of its markets.

Continuous changes in product development, technology and increasing customer demands place a greater emphasis on our ability to respond effectively to this environment.
