Canon Innovative Manufacturing Solutions

Canon Innovative Manufacturing Solutions

With the introduction of Production Innovation, Canon Virginia has changed its manufacturing operations from long assembly lines in huge warehouses to cellular manufacturing utilizing the latest in technological advances and automation, thus empowering teams to reach a common goal and objective.

Our innovative manufacturing process is modeled around the ideals of “lean manufacturing” and creates a seamless process from parts procurement through delivery.  It encourages continuous improvement among our members and our processes by eliminating waste in time and resources.  Our focus on total efficiency translates into lower costs and swift response to ever changing market needs.  On the service side, it allows us to focus more closely on customer satisfaction through the idea of Kaizen, or continual improvement.

Through every step of the Canon manufacturing solutions, we look to Produce-Use-Recycle whenever possible. At Canon Virginia, we harvest our used parts, segregate materials, purify plastics, recycle, re-use, and commit to zero landfill. We minimize the use of hazardous materials, engage in a multitude of conservation efforts, and offer a variety of repair and refurbish programs to extend the life of products.
