For more than 50 years, the PFU group of companies (“PFU”) has been developing technologies to accelerate digital transformation for organizations around the world—including our state-of-the-art fi Series and ScanSnap document scanners.
PFU Limited was founded in 1960, and our joint-venture roots weave back to 1973 when we joined PANAFACOM, a consortium of companies including Fujitsu and Panasonic that developed the first minicomputers. Years later, in 1987, USAC Denshi and PANAFACOM merged to establish PFU Limited (PANAFACOM, USAC). In 1983, PFU Limited launched our first document scanner.
For decades, PFU has been committed to manufacturing and supporting digital transformation-focused products for our customers and partners. From introducing the first flatbed scanner to building the best-selling fi-7160, our innovative spirit and solution-forward technologies have helped us achieve and maintain our top spot in the global market.*
We’ve recently joined the Ricoh Group of companies. Our fi Series and ScanSnap lines will continue on as leaders in their respective categories and inherit the Ricoh masterbrand. All our R&D, manufacturing, sales and marketing will remain in place, just as it has been the past two decades.
PFU remains dedicated to bringing the world’s best-selling consumer and enterprise scanners to organizations everywhere, helping them move forward in a more connected, sustainable world.
