Fujitsu started to produce many of Japan’s phones, as well as the accompanying telecommunications infrastructure. But it was Fujitsu’s creation of Japan’s first computer (the FACOM 100) in 1953 that captured the world’s attention. Since then, Fujitsu has grown to offer a full range of technology products, solutions and services. Fujitsu now has a strong focus on becoming a digital transformation partner for its customers.
Across Australia and New Zealand, Fujitsu is recognised as a supplier of choice for many local businesses and government organisations across retail, financial services, healthcare and transport.

Fujitsu is committed to being a responsible business that reflects the diversity of the world and building an inclusive culture where everyone can be completely themselves. Fujitsu believes that our differences make us stronger and enable us to produce better and more innovative work.

Fujitsu has sought to combine the best that Japanese and Western corporations have to offer. It embraces diversity and “fair and equal access to opportunities based on merit” rather than a hierarchical, conformist corporate culture. At the same time, Fujitsu has continued to show loyalty to its employees, encourage collaborative workplaces where staff members come together “cohesively in teams” and take a long-term view rather than obsessing about next quarter’s results.
