Epson Europe: Our Story

Epson has always been ahead of its time. Quite literally. Founded in 1942 as a small watchmaking factory – Daiwa Kogyo Ltd. (later Seiko). The company went on to launch the EP-101 in 1968. It was the world's first compact, lightweight digital printer from which the name Epson - the son of the EP - was born.
