It started producing optical glasses for war; and many Fuji companies were formed but finally consolidated into Fuji Photo Film Co. Ltd. Fujifilm became the largest multinational photography and imaging company of Japan and is known worldwide. Until the late 1970s, fuji cameras were named Fujica as an amalgamation of the word ‘Fuji’ and ‘camera.’
