Olympus Corporation of the Americas

Olympus Corporation, a global medtech leader, landed in the Lehigh Valley in 2006 when it moved its Americas headquarters from Long Island.

The health care industry relies upon Olympus products and technologies to perform diagnostic, therapeutic, and minimally invasive procedures and treatments.

Olympus makes endoscopes, laparoscopes, video imaging systems, surgical energy devices, systems integration solutions, and endotherapy instruments. It dominates the market when it comes to gastro endoscopes, flexible tubes with tiny cameras that are inserted down a patient’s throat to examine the digestive tract and other organs.

The Japanese-based company started more than a century ago and was known for the technology and the production of microscopes and cameras.
