Canon Central and North Africa (CCNA)


Canon Central and North Africa (CCNA) is a division within Canon Middle East FZ LLC (CME), a subsidiary of Canon Europe.

The formation of CCNA within CME in 2015 is a strategic step that aims to enhance Canon’s business within the Africa region-- by strengthening Canon’s in-country presence and focus. CCNA also demonstrates Canon’s commitment to operating closer to its customers and meeting their demands in the rapidly evolving African market. Canon has been represented in the Africa continent for more than 15 years through distributors and partners that have successfully built a solid customer base in the region. 

The fast-growing African market was earlier served through Canon’s office in the UAE, established in 1998. Subsequently, Canon Middle East FZ-LLC (CME) was formed as a free zone company, with the remit to expand its presence in Africa. As part of the geographic expansion, CME added Egypt, as part of its markets in 2000. A representative office was established in Cairo in 2001, followed by the transfer of 21 countries in Maghreb and West Africa to CME in 2005.

CME continued to strengthen its presence in Africa with the opening of a local office in Morocco, transferring under its remit the East Africa territory in 2011 and also establishing an office in Kenya in 2012 .
