OKI: Brand overview

Founded:January 1881
Founder:Kibataro Oki
Tokyo, Japan
OKI is a prominent Japanese organization specializing in information telecommunication and printing technologies. Established in 1881 as a Tokyo-based telecommunications equipment repair enterprise, the company quickly adapted to evolving technology trends. It focused on developing teleprinters and telephone exchange equipment during its formative years, eventually venturing into the burgeoning ICT market in the 1960s.

In the following decades, OKI expanded its product range to include printers, Automatic Teller Machines (ATMs), Multi-Layer Perceptrons (MLPs), and various other products related to information telecommunication. Today, the company’s core offerings encompass an array of business printing solutions, Point of Sale (POS) printers, multi-functional printers, ATMs, and telecommunication systems.

OKI’s printer brands include Clover and Execview, with digital LED and dot matrix printing technologies standing out as the key technological pillars of their product line. The company’s operational footprint extends to over 120 countries across the globe, with the majority of its sales coming from overseas markets.

In a strategic move to bolster its foothold in the financial equipment market, OKI acquired IBM’s POS and ATM business in 2016. Despite being headquartered in Tokyo, the company employs over 20,000 individuals worldwide and is publicly traded on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

The company’s main rivals include Epson and Canon, particularly in the specialized printing sector, and Diebold Nixdorf in the financial technology sector.
