Fujifilm South Africa marks ten-year milestone with opening of new eco-friendly head office

Moreover, a 30-seater auditorium now gives Fujifilm South Africa the opportunity to offer on-site product training to customers, run photography workshops and the ability to host events.

Fujifilm’s head office in Johannesburg was designed by Empowered Space Architects and follows the opening of a new Fujifilm office and repair centre in Cape Town during 2021 and the building of the Fujifilm warehouse in Roodepoort in 2017. The offices were constructed by Bantry Construction, with building taking place from March 2022 through to handover to Fujifilm at the end of January 2023. The Sandton area where Fujifilm South Africa is now based, is considered the business centre of South Africa and referred to as “the richest square mile in Africa”.
