The story below might just be part of the negotiations for the money Canon got from New York State. But, this is the new normal. Only time will tell.
Canon exec to propose Melville as world headquarters
September 17, 2009 By firstname.lastname@example.org When Canon USA Inc. chief executive Joe Adachi travels to the company's worldwide headquarters for a meeting in Tokyo next month, he will propose that the giant imaging company relocate its world headquarters to Melville.
Adachi's plan came at a news conference earlier this week attended by Gov. David A. Paterson, who announced for at least the third time that Canon will remain on Long Island - at new digs in Melville.
"We have a worldwide meeting in Tokyo, and I'd like to try to bring world headquarters to Melville," said Adachi, who will meet with Canon chief executive Fujio Mitarai.
Adachi laughed when asked later whether such a move was a possibility.
