This centre joins the endoscopy equipment repair activity, which Fujifilm had concentrated in the country about five years ago.

Fujifilm has set up in Portugal the biggest technical assistance centre in Europe. It joins the endoscopy equipment repair activity, which it had concentrated in the country about five years ago. The group’s global service centre (GSC) now provides services to 25 international markets.

At Candal Park, in Vila Nova de Gaia, the Camera Repair Service will start with around two dozen professionals – with the team expected to expand in the short term – and will provide services in the areas of repair, calibration and maintenance of digital camera equipment and analogue cameras and lenses.

The new centre will provide services to customers in Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece, Hungary, Croatia, Italy, Iceland, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Sweden, Slovakia, Israel and South Africa. It will soon cover France, Slovenia and Ireland, reaching 25 countries.

“We are proud of our country and our teams to strengthen our position in Fujifilm Europe and International. The CRS is another specialised service centre we have attracted to Portugal, providing services to dozens of countries in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. At the moment, the GSC in Portugal is the largest at the European level, and the aim is to continue to strengthen the competitive position, attracting more service centres to the country,” highlights Pedro Mesquita, general director of Fujifilm for Portugal and Spain.

Present in Portugal since 1967, Fujifilm is active in three areas: imaging, from photo capture to printing; Graphic Communication, including large format digital printing systems, software solutions for workflow management and POD (printing on demand); and Healthcare, with a portfolio of medical solutions that covers, among others, systems for CT, MRI, X-ray, PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System), endoscopy or ultrasound.
