Ricoh India Launches 9 new printers in India

New Delhi. 4th August 2008. Mr.Tetsuo Okochi, Dy. General Manager, Ricoh Company Limited, the parent company of Ricoh India Limited declared open a new range of office automation products for the Indian market. Ricoh India Ltd is a 73.6% owned subsidiary of Ricoh Co. Ltd. Japan, a global leader in Office Automation solutions with consolidated revenue of US $22 bn. Ricoh India declared a turnover of Rs 2,194.6 million for the year ended March 2007.

Mr. Tetsuo Okochi said, "With a significant foray into the office A4 segment, just as in other global markets, Ricoh India also has signalled its clear intent to seize leadership in the Indian Office Automation market," He further emphasized, "After establishing itself as a market leader in the A3 Multi-Functional Printer segment, now the company aims to help small workgroups in today's offices to become more productive".

In a scenario where for every A3 machine over 10 A4 machines are sold, Ricoh India has introduced a wide range of products to address diverse customer needs - from versatile Multi-Function to Single Function Printers, and from affordable colour printers to B/W ones.

The new range includes the revolutionary GelSprinter series - the Aficio GX 3000/ GX 3050N/ GX 5050N. These machines are capable of printing colour virtually at the cost of B/W. In fact, the GelSprinter combines the best of Laser & Inkjet technologies, giving crisp sun-resistant and water-proof prints like the former, and consuming very little power like the latter.

The Aficio SP C420DN is the first A4 printer in the market that operates at a guaranteed cost per page. Made available on a click-charge model by Ricoh India, this colour printer offers fixed running costs for both Colour and B/W, regardless of print coverage. The result is complete peace of mind for the user, who is set free of all toner cost worries and inconsistency inherent in ad hoc service.

The Aficio SP 1000SF/ 1000S is an MFP that helps you bypass the PC. The machine comes with a unique USB port that allows the user to directly scan to and print from a pen drive, without the bother of switching on a PC. This makes it extremely convenient to use, and saves time and effort.

Besides these office champions, the new A4 range comes fully loaded ? with features such as network-readiness, robust security features, duplex printing, ergonomic design and appliance-like ease of operation.

With a comprehensive portfolio spanning colour and B/W Copiers, Printers and MFPs, A4 to A0 size, for personal or workgroup or enterprises usage, along with Solution Softwares. Ricoh India will be the sole manufacturer in India who will be able to take care of the complete range of Printing and Document Management requirements in today's offices by a single sales consultant- something no other company provides.
