NIKON Nikon Corporation, also known just as Nikon, is a Japanese multinational corporation headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, specializing in optics and imaging products which include cameras, camera lenses, binoculars, microscopes, ophthalmatic lenses and measurement instruments. Nikon Corporation was established on 25 July 1917 when three leading optical manufacturers merged to form a comprehensive, fully integrated optical company.

During World War II the company grew to nineteen factories and 23,000 employees, supplying items such as binoculars, lenses, bomb sights, and periscopes to the Japanese military. In addition to cameras and other visual imaging products, Nikon Corporation (Nikon) develops and manufactures photolithography equipment. Today, Nikon Precision is an industry leader in supplying and supporting advanced photolithography equipment used in the critical stages of semiconductor manufacturing.
