Epson's EP-101 represented 'a breakthrough in printer size', says the 70-year-old company

Epson is celebrating 70 years since its creation as a watch components manufacturer called Daiwa Kogyo in Japan in 1942. Its history includes the world's first compact, lightweight digital printer, the EP-101, introduced in 1968, and the Epson brand launch in 1975.

"Epson's origins as a watch manufacturer are indicative of its commitment to products of quality and precision," says Tony Petford, managing director, Epson UK.

"Over the last seven decades, we've pioneered some of the most exciting imaging technologies, coupled with strong energy-saving credentials. As the industry continues to change, we're looking forward to showcasing future products and innovations."
