Corporate History

Corporate Profile

LAC Corporation was founded in 1983 and is based in Tokyo, Japan. Since then, we have been proactively doing the business activities not only in Japan but also in the global markets such as Europe, the US, Asian countries, Middle East and so on.

We started with developing electronic and data processing equipment, and our focus was shifted to developing digital printer which is targeted at niche market. We have been successful to develop a variety of very unique digital printers which are based on our advanced technology. For instance, our Vehicle Art Robo enables you to print the body of truck, bus and airplane directly in full color with incredibly cheaper cost than that of other technologies like wrapping film.

We were awarded as a global niche top 100 company of Japan by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan on March 14th, 2014 because we pursue the development of unique products and promote the sales not only to Japanese market but also overseas markets. Besides, JQA (Japan Quality Assurance Organization) has certified we comply with ISO9001 on January 9, 2015.

We are strongly determined to continue to develop innovative printers based on our advanced technology and know-how which were established at our company over the past 35 years. With our high value-added printers, we continue being a company helping the society.
