Bedankt voor uw bezoek aan de website van Tamron.

In het verlengde van onze missie waarin "Tamron een bijdrage wil leveren aan de samenleving met de creatie van New Eyes for Industry" ontwikkelde en commercialiseerde de Tamrongroep in het belang van het brede publiek diverse andere "New Eyes for Industry"-producten in verschillende sectoren.

In de markt van verwisselbare cameraobjectieven staan we algemeen bekend om onze uiterst krachtige zoom- en macro-objectieven. Vanuit ons engagement om onderwerpen in beeld te brengen met originele technologieën heeft Tamron altijd al bijzonder innovatieve producten aangeboden.
Tamron rekent ook op zijn superieure technologische competenties op het gebied van optica voor de ontwikkeling en commercialisering van hoogkwalitatieve producten in nieuwe domeinen, met onder meer objectieven voor bewakingscamera's en in voertuigen gemonteerde camera's. Op die manier draagt Tamron bij tot de vooruitgang in diverse sectoren.

Binnen de Tamrongroep zullen we ons blijven toeleggen op de verbetering van onze technische competenties als fabrikant van optische precisie-instrumenten. We zullen ook nieuwe uitdagingen aangaan voor "New Eyes for Industry” die bij onze klanten belangstelling, vertrouwen en zekerheid opwekken. Voor de uitbreiding van onze activiteitsradius plaatsen we CSR voorop in onze bedrijfsvoering om zo uit te groeien tot een ondernemingsgroep met een rijk gevarieerde bijdrage aan de brede samenleving.
Binnen de Tamrongroep doen we er alles aan om de verwachtingen van onze klanten te blijven inlossen. We willen u via deze weg om uw continue steun vragen.

Cologne site

Tamron Europe GmbH has had its company headquarters in the cathedral city of Cologne for many years. The hub of Tamron´s European business is performed just eyeshot away from the Fühlinger lake in northern Cologne. The spheres of activity include sales, export, marketing, service and distribution performed by apx. 40 employees.

Cologne is ideal for an internationally operating enterprise such as Tamron. Apart from the close-by international airports of Cologne-Bonn and Düsseldorf and the Japanese community in nearby Dusseldorf, it is here where the leading photographic trade fair photokina takes place every two years.

Cologne is home and a favorite photo subject at the same time: the cathedral and the Hohenzollern Bridge are often used as a photographic subject for advertising.
