December 21, 2017
Dear Valued Customer,
We are delighted to announce that effective 4th January 2018, Toshiba Medical Systems ANZ Pty Limited will change its name to Canon Medical Systems ANZ Pty Limited completing the transition of Toshiba Medical to the Canon Group.
As Toshiba Medical and Canon join forces we look forward to the synergies this partnership will offer our customers. Our healthcare business is thriving and the strength of Toshiba Medical is the reason Canon, a well-respected and global leader in imaging solutions, acquired us.
Canon has a strong vision for building a world-class healthcare enterprise and we are certain that Toshiba Medical’s 100 year history and our “Made for Life” philosophy will continue to drive this company forward.
The following will also change:
PO BOX 616
North Ryde BC
The following details remain unchanged:
Finally, our banking BSB and account number is unchanged, except for the account name that will become Canon Medical Systems Pty Limited.
Please adjust your records accordingly from the 4th January 2018 (and please excuse that this letter is written on current letterhead as we are precluded from using new naming until the “go-live” date of 4th January).
From the beginning of December 2017 product and equipment in the process of being manufactured will no longer include the TOSHIBA brand name and for a period of time there will be no company branding appearing on newly manufactured systems. It is expected that the CANON brand should start appearing on production systems from the end of the second quarter in 2018. However, the TOSHIBA logo may remain in place on some components of a system for a period of time.
With regard to compliance labels (or name plates), which must conform with legal requirements for labeling, the name “Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation” will appear on all systems manufactured up to the 4th January 2018 after which “Canon Medical Systems Corporation” will be used.
Please note that there is no plan to modify the brand name of systems currently installed or apply the CANON brand to systems with no branding.
We thank you for your business and continued support and look forward to a new and exciting era for Canon Medical Systems ANZ Pty Limited. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
