VALHALLA, N.Y.

As of October 1, Tokyo-based Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd. will take on a new holding company structure, launching FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation, which will provide strategic management of the entire group, including two newly named operating companies: Fujifilm Corporation and Fuji Xerox Co., Ltd. The shift in structure will strengthen consolidated management, enhance strategic planning and expand collaboration.

New Corporate Identity The familiar Fujifilm red hexagon mark has been eliminated and a sharp accent design is now applied in the center of the logo. In addition, although the hue will change slightly, Fujifilm will continue to use green as its corporate color. The introduction of the new corporate brand logo along with the new company name is intended to express the company's expansion into new business domains as well as to further strengthen its corporate brand image.
