Komori and Konica Minolta Sign Sales, OEM Agreement for Commercial Printing Market
Additionally, beginning in May 2012, Konica Minolta will supply Komori with the bizhub PRESS series on an OEM basis in those four regions.
Komori will roll out the bizhub PRESS series that it receives from Konica Minolta on an OEM basis as Komori-brand products and expand sales channels to customers having an “OffsetOnDemand” orientation. Konica Minolta will expand its distribution channels to customers who use offset print systems as their main production system. That will enable it to accumulate diverse information about output quality, media handling and stable operation of the system in relation to the heavy production segment in every phase of development, manufacturing, sales and customer support.
In preparation for future growth, Komori plans to undertake a technology exhibit at drupa 2012 of an inkjet digital printing system (prototype) that is under joint development with Konica Minolta for rollout to the commercial printing market.
In 2012, Komori will move forward with its transition into becoming a trusted “Print Engineering Services Provider” and will work toward improving the profit structure of the entire printing industry by further strengthening cooperative relations with the printing industry and by pursuing greater convenience for customers. By supplying solutions for these objectives and based on a posture by which Komori and our customers continue to grow together, we aim to realize our goal of becoming a customer kando enterprise.
