About Olympus

Olympus is one of the worlds leading manufacturers of optical products that includes binoculars, film and digital cameras as well as voice products, endoscopy, microscopy, bioanalytics and diagnostics. Formed in Japan in 1919, under the name of Takachiho Seisakusho, the company initially specialized in microscope and thermometers. The name came from Mt.Takachiho which is believed to be the home of gods and goddesses. Then when the company moved into Europe in 1921, the name was changed to Olympus after Mt. Olympus, which like Mt.Takachiho is believed in Greek mythology to be the home of the twelve supreme gods and goddesses.
