Olympus Corporation ("Olympus") announced the completion of the spin-off of its scientific solutions division, which became a wholly-owned subsidiary named Evident Corporation ("Evident"). This decision, taken after the divestiture of Olympus' imaging business, confirms the company's long-term strategy to consolidate its position as a leading player in the medical technology industry. The proposed split was first announced in June 2021. As a newly created wholly-owned subsidiary, Evident, headquartered in Japan, will continue to operate independently under the auspices of Olympus. Olympus' scientific solutions division encompassed Olympus' industrial and life sciences businesses. The reorganization will give the division the autonomy and agility to respond quickly and flexibly to the needs of industrial and life sciences customers. Yoshitake Saito, President and CEO of Evident, commented on the direction of the new company: "Evident, while continuing to provide best-in-class products, will expand its digital and cloud solutions to improve the customer experience and overall workflow in the areas of research and inspection. We will move from a business model focused on selling products to one focused on solving customer problems and challenges. With this greater management autonomy, we will foster agile product development and open innovation, which we believe will accelerate the speed of product development. »
"The new company name exemplifies our unwavering commitment to continue to provide high-quality products and technical expertise, enabling our customers to discover new perspectives and make new discoveries in their areas of expertise. It also illustrates the renewed attention we pay to collaboration with customers as well as our responsiveness to customer concerns," the company added.
Evident Industrial's solutions range from microscopes and videoscopes to non-destructive testing devices and X-ray analyzers. They are intended for different applications in the fields of maintenance, manufacturing and the environment. Backed by state-of-the-art technologies, Evident products are widely used in inspection, measurement and quality control applications.
Evident Life Science brings new possibilities to scientists and researchers through collaboration tools and cutting-edge life science solutions. Committed to meeting the challenges and changing needs of its customers, Evident Life Science offers a full range of microscopes and microscopy systems for clinical research, teaching and high-end imaging.
