Canon Breaks Ground on New Americas HQ
MELVILLE, N.Y., May 17, 2010 — Digital imaging and advanced office solutions provider Canon USA Inc. announced recently that it had broken ground at its new North and South American headquarters campus in Melville.
The new facility will serve as one of the company’s three worldwide headquarters. The other two are located in Tokyo and London.
