[Background and Aim of Shared Services]
FUJIFILM established “Enhancing consolidated management” as part of its fundamental strategies in its medium-term management plan, “VISION 75”. In October 2006, it shifted to a holding company structure and, in February 2007, it assembled and integrated FUJIFILM and Fuji Xerox head offices at Tokyo Midtown complex in Roppongi to maximize group synergy.
Using this organizational shift as an opportunity, FUJIFILM Holdings Group started “Slim & Strong” activities which aim to achieve a more muscular and robust corporate constitution, and meticulously streamline manufacturing expenses, selling, general and administrative expenses, R&D expenditures and focus its uses.
The shift to shared services is a part of the “Slim & Strong” activities. FUJIFILM will strive for enhanced service quality and agility, and will relentlessly pursue efficiency through creation of a leaner company by consolidating shared operations, standardization and integration of operational processes, and utilization of outsourcing.
