Canon U.S.A., Inc., is in its final stages of a permanent move from Lake Success to Melville.
More than six years after Suffolk County officials helped settle a land dispute and three years after construction began, the digital imaging solutions company announced last week it will consolidate nearly 1,400 Canon employees into one central location at Canon's new regional headquarters.
Nearly half of the company's employees have relocated to the new headquarters while the 700 remaining employees will complete the move in March, according to company officials.
One Canon Park is a 700,000 square-foot facility located approximately 16 miles east of the current headquarters in Lake Success. Long Island has been home to Canon since 1971.
“One Canon Park will be a symbol of not only our dedication to our employees, but also our dedication to the Long Island community we have called home since 1971,” said Seymour Liebman, executive vice president, chief administrative officer and general counsel, Canon U.S.A., in a news release.
The new headquarters will serve all North and South American countries and will be one of Canon’s three worldwide headquarters, with the other two located in London and Japan.
