Canon U.S.A. Announces New Customer Support Center In Albuquerque

Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced today that Canon Information Technology Services, Inc. (CITS), its wholly owned subsidiary, will open a customer support center at 4041 Jefferson Plaza NE in Albuquerque, N.M. This center will provide additional customer service support and technical capabilities for Canon customers.

The 33,682-square-foot Albuquerque center will support small office and consumer imaging products, including digital cameras, camcorders, printers, and copiers. The new location will also support Canon’s growing professional printing, cinema, and eCommerce customers. It is anticipated that the support center will create at least 150 call center positions over a three-year period. Hiring is expected to commence in early 2014, with operations anticipated to begin in April 2014.

“Expanding our support centers illustrates our continuing commitment to providing 100 percent U.S.-based customer service,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. “We chose Albuquerque specifically because the area has a reduced exposure to weather-related disruptions, the ability to service multiple time zones, and an educated workforce, a large percentage of which has bilingual capabilities, all of which will help us serve our customers better.”

“We thank Canon, an internationally-renowned company, for choosing Albuquerque for the site of their new tech services center and creating jobs for New Mexicans,” said Governor Susana Martinez. “In addition to having a skilled workforce, our recently improved tax climate and incentives make New Mexico a great place for companies like Canon to operate and succeed. I also commend Mayor Berry and his leadership in creating a business-friendly city and for his partnership in recruiting Canon here.”

“Canon ITS and Albuquerque are a great match for each other and we are very pleased they are joining our community,” said Mayor Richard J. Berry. “Like Albuquerque, Canon has a strong commitment to diversity and to providing a ‘work environment that is technology driven and people-oriented.’ It’s no surprise they’re ranked among Fortune’s ‘Most Admired Companies in America.’ I’m pleased I was able to work with the executive team from Canon for the last few months to make this project a win-win for all of us.”

“Bernalillo County is pleased to be part of the partnership that attracted Canon and its 150 new jobs to Central New Mexico,” said Commission Vice-Chair Debbie O’Malley. “I know there are many qualified, talented New Mexicans who are excited about filling those positions and joining in Canon’s long tradition of excellence.”
