Production printing customers will enjoy “increased access” to a support programme, whilst office clients will be able to utilise Ricoh’s MDS, IT services and outsourcing technologies.

Akira Oyama, CEO of Ricoh Europe, stated: “We are excited to be expanding our services for the office and production printing businesses in Turkey. We look forward to working with them as they shape their digital strategies and optimise business critical processes for future growth.

“Our expansion also provides more opportunities for us to enhance the relationships with our distribution partners in Turkey as they grow the products and services they are providing to their clients. The large appetite for new digital technologies allows Ricoh and its partners to contribute to growing the overall market in Turkey for digital office and production printing solutions.”
