Epson hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new Los Alamitos-based headquarters on Tuesday, May 9 at 3131 Katella Ave. The ceremony featured remarks from Los Alamitos Mayor Tanya Doby, Epson America president and CEO Keith Kratzberg and Seiko Epson director Koichi Kubota, according to a statement released by the copy.
The new campus serves as Epson’s corporate headquarters for the U.S., Canada and Latin America, overseeing operations for home, office, commercial, and industrial printing, visual communications, wearables, robotics, microdevices, and manufacturing.
Supporting an innovative hybrid program for more than 80% of its workforce, Epson retains remote working flexibility for employees with a six-day per month in-office schedule.
The campus also features a hoteling workspace system, greatly reducing the required physical footprint for staff. This allowed for an expanded Executive Briefing Center serving as a state-of-the-art destination to host customers, partners and community members.
“The innovative Epson campus embodies the lessons we’ve gleaned from relocating during a global pandemic. By leveraging Epson technologies, we’ve optimized the space to boost productivity and foster collaboration, while prioritizing sustainability, community engagement, and employee work-life balance,” said Keith Kratzberg, Epson America president and CEO.
In addition to expanding operations to more than 150,000 square feet in a two-building, environmentally focused facility, the Epson Campus is the physical realization of the Epson 25 Renewed Corporate Vision and how Epson America embodies our mission. Offering one of the leading job markets in California and one of the most diverse populations, Orange County was the right location for the move.\
“We welcome Epson and its employees to the Los Alamitos business community and believe their presence will support a wide range of local businesses, as well as bring new jobs and investment opportunities to the area,” said mayor Tanya Doby. “I firmly believe in the culture and community of Los Alamitos and look forward to the ongoing collaboration to help the area grow and thrive.”
“Our new headquarters is more than just a building; it represents a commitment to growth, innovation and excellence. With state-of-the-art facilities and cutting-edge technology, we are better equipped to deliver world-class products and services to our customers,” concluded Kratzberg.
