Fuji Xerox Australia (FXA) is due to change its name to Fujifilm Business Innovation Australia as of April 1 and operating as a Fujifilm company going forward.
The company recently issued a statement to its suppliers, outlining this change and what it means for them.
“Firstly, if you are an existing active supplier, nothing changes in terms of our commitment to you,” the company said in the statement.
“Our ABN and CAN numbers are not changing, so there is no formal change to our contract with you. Upon renewal of future contracts, we will ensure the name change is reflected.
“If we transact with you via our Purchase Order Terms and conditions, our Purchase Orders from April 1, we will reflect our new company name.”
The company has also asked suppliers to change its business name record in systems to state “Fujifilm Business Innovation Australia Pty Ltd” and to ensure invoices raised after April 1 are re-addressed in this business name.
In addition, it has requested that correspondence sent across is addressed to the new company name.
“Over time, you will notice the name change in our marketing material, brochures, signage, multifunction device and printer badges and advertising,” the company added.
FXA’s business name change comes as its parent company Fuji Xerox Co. determined not to renew its technology agreement with XEROX Corporation post the expiration date of its current agreement, ending March 31.
“Fuji Xerox and Xerox Corporation have a history of benefiting from the shared use of technologies each company independently developed,” FXA said.
“As such, Fuji Xerox is well-positioned to continue developing and manufacturing its original products using its own, unique technologies after the expiration of the technology agreement with Xerox Corporation.”
