Fujifilm South Africa has officially opened its newly constructed head office, located at 18 Holt Street, Sandton, Johannesburg. At 999m², the five-storey building incorporates the Fujifilm Technology Centre Africa, office space for employees, boardrooms, a Fujifilm repair centre and a 30-seater auditorium for training purposes.
Importantly, the South African head office was constructed to fall in line with FUJIFILM Holdings’ climate action targets: To produce net zero CO2 emissions by the fiscal year ending March 2041. The South African head office is set to meet this goal, having been designed with the help of a green energy consultant. As such, it incorporates the use of solar power panels with a capacity of 65 kVA, biometric access control, motion sensors, day/night lighting and energy efficient plumbing that consumes less water.
Present at the new office is the Fujifilm Technology Centre Africa, which moved from its previous location at the Fujifilm warehouse to the new premises. It is the only Fujifilm Technology Centre on the continent, taking up two floors and providing a demo centre for Fujifilm’s different departments to showcase a myriad of innovative solutions to customers. This includes products from Medical Systems, Graphic Communication as well as Imaging Solutions.
