Where does the name "TOPCON" come from?

The name "TOPCON" was initially chosen when the company called for internal submissions of possible names for a newly developed camera, circa 1953. The name was used for the 35mm "TOPCON 35A" camera that went on sale in November 1953. Subsequently, the name was used not only for cameras, but also as the brand name for our products. In 1989, we extended this brand name and changed our company name to "Topcon Corporation".

It is said that the name is derived from Tokyo Optical Company, the English name for our former company.
