May All Your Holidays be Merry

December 23, 2014

As we prepare for the upcoming holidays, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on our Konica Minolta family.

This has been a very good year for us. From a business perspective, we have continued to lead the industry, launching products from our flagship C1100 production printer to our cloud-storage FileAssist solution. We have pushed into enterprise content management with the acquisition of companies across the country. We have continued to grow the business across all verticals. We have also continued to expand our dealer partnerships, deepening and strengthening relationships.

But beyond our products, we have continued to grow our Konica Minolta family, bringing in the best and brightest to help position us across the entire spectrum of the industry. The thought leaders in our new Business Innovation Center in Foster City, CA, are identifying and nurturing breakthrough disruptive technology. Our solutions and services divisions are innovating 21st century technology, from cloud and mobility to enterprise content management and IT integration. Our subject matter experts across the verticals of education, healthcare, legal, finance and government bring real-world experience to our sales team. Across Konica Minolta, we are positioned as the company that will give shape to our customers’ ideas. Our employees are the foundation of our success. Their dedication to the company continues to prove that we are the A Team in our industry.

We look forward to continuing our relationship in 2015 with our customers and our partners. On behalf of everyone at Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc., I want to take this opportunity to wish you a very happy holiday season and a wonderful new year.
