Olympic Camera Works was a trade name for the Asahi Bussan company, which was established in c1934 in Tokyo. Some cameras had "AB" name on the front. In 1937 Asahi Bussan was acquired by Riken Kankōshi, and renamed to Asahi Kōgaku Kōgyō K.K. (Asahi Optical Industries) (unrelated to another Asahi Kōgaku Kōgyō K.K. - Petax predecessor). AB name was slowly replaced by AKK. While almost all Olympic cameras were made by Asahi Bussan, the company also sold rebadged cameras by other manufacturers - i.e. Adler series as well as Vest Olympic with Regal Olympic. Cameras sold after 1937 are listed under Riken.
