Our parent company, Seiko Epson Corporation (SEC) holds leadership positions in each of three major business areas:
The Seiko Business Unit is world famous for innovations in superior-quality watches.
The Information Technology Unit is a leader in the graphics imaging market with our award-winning Epson family of printers, scanners, cameras, and projectors.
The Electronic Devices Unit pioneered Energy Saving technology in Epson semiconductors, liquid crystal displays, quartz devices, visual instruments and device-applied products.
For more than 15 years, Epson marketed electronic devices through two U.S. affiliates. The first, Epson America, Inc. (EAI), was responsible for developing our quartz devices, LCDs, motors, magnets and device-applied products. The second, S-MOS Systems, Inc., was responsible for semiconductors, CARD-PCs, silicon foundry, packaging and services.
We established Epson Electronics America, Inc. (EEA) as the regional headquarters for our electronic device and component business for the Americas, covering the United States, Canada, and Latin America. EEA markets and sells our electronic devices and delivers the engineering support necessary to ensure that designers developing advanced systems select our products over those of our competitors.
The EEA management team and key personnel come from both EAI and S-MOS, thus retaining the experience and knowledge required for this smooth transition.
Headquartered in San Jose, Calif., EEA is located in Silicon Valley, the heart of the nation's high-tech industry and home to many leading universities.
