Nikon Corporation announced today the reorganization of its corporate structure. Nikon's Core Technology Division will be closed and replaced by Research & Development Division and Production Technology divisions. As you'd expect, the former is dedicated to research and development, the latter integrates the functions of group production strategy planning and production technology development. The objective of this move is to clarify functions and responsibilities and enhance the efficiency of the production system.

In addition Nikon is integrating its Medical Business Development Division and Microscope Solutions Business Unit to form a new Healthcare Business Unit with the goal to create business synergies.
