Company Profile

CASIO is one of the leading manufacturers of electronic consumable goods worldwide. Since it was founded in 1957, the company has dedicated itself to faithfully developing products that stand out from the crowd thanks to the latest technology and innovative design, in line with its guiding philosophy of "creativity and contribution". Today, the global CASIO spectrum of products ranges from watches, digital cameras, mobile phones*, electronic dictionaries, computers, music instruments, projectors, cash point systems, mobile terminals through to electronic components* such as LC displays. In light of the international expansion, the distribution site CASIO Computer Co. GmbH Deutschland was founded in Hamburg in 1972. In 1994, CASIO moved to Business-Park Norderstedt. In 2002, the CASIO European headquarters were relocated from London to Norderstedt and CASIO Computer Co. GmbH became CASIO Europe GmbH. Since its inception, CASIO Europe GmbH has been responsible for the marketing and sales activities throughout Europe and has acted as the direct coordinator for Germany and Austria. In addition to the favourable conditions offered by the Norderstedt site, the location on the continent and connections to the important markets in east and west Europe were major reasons behind the decision to relocate the European headquarters to Germany. At the start of 2009, CASIO moved to NORDPORT to meet the ever increasing requirements on mobility and logistics that are placed on European headquarters with international operations. As the German market occupies a key position for CASIO in Europe, the move to NORDPORT is not only a significant building block for the future development of CASIO Europe headquarters at Norderstedt, but also for the whole of Europe. Companies in Great Britain, Italy, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Russia as well as numerous distributors in other European countries form a network with the European headquarters that ensures optimum sales at the highest quality.
