OKI (OKIdata): Will cease its North America activities in 2021.
OKIdata, a Japanese company, will continue its global operations, but will cease operations throughout North America (US / Canada / Mexico) on March 31, 2021.
This decision stems from a combination of several factors including the situation not only with Covid-19, but also recent events in Japan (earthquake, tsunami, etc.) and the relative position of the OKI brand in the North American market place.
