In light of the rapid economic growth in India, targeting to increase customer satisfaction and reinforce its ability to develop businesses locally by strengthening marketing, enhancing and expanding the existing sales network, exploiting new sales channels, and improving customer service, Konica Minolta Business Solutions India, a subsidiary of Japan-based Konica Minolta Business Technologies Inc, has officially become operational. With state-of-the-art office in Gurgaon, the new company was formally inaugurated in presence of Konica Minolta’s officials, existing as well as perspective distributors and customers in India.
Speaking on the happy occasion, Jun Haraguchi, director & general manager-sales at headquarters, Konica Minolta Business Technologies Inc stated that in India with younger population, education and freedom, growth potential is enormous and that is why we are here. We in our own way also wish to contribute in India’s growth. “Advanced markets are already saturated, while India is well promising market for future of MFP and production printers business. Though, in general, it has been a low-end centric market, but there would be good potential now onwards mainly in ‘colour’ printing, as Indian people do prefer new technology. However, the current market size of A3 MFP in India is much smaller than that of China, but surely such gap will be minimized in future, if it continues by current rhythm,” explained Tadahiko Sumitani, managing director, Konica Minolta Business Solutions India Pvt Ltd.
“With vision to be one of the top MFP brands in India, differentiating the brand by unique product and superior service with high level customer satisfaction, our main strategy is to launch innovative products, provide high level of after sales service and increase channel strengthening partnerships. Having broad product line from small LBP to PP to meet any requirements and ensure efficiency, we are committed to bring colour MFP, production printing and customer satisfaction to Indian market. Being a key to success, the service shall be focused as first priority,” added Tadahiko.
Over the years, through their existing distributors in India, including HCL, Monotech Systems and KMI Business Technologies, Konica Minolta has substantially sold their various models in graphic arts industry as well as for office use. Now, the beginning of Konica Minolta’s Indian subsidiary shall bring more confidence among the users for getting prompt and better after sales services and spare-parts availability. The company has already launched C7000 and C6000 printers in India, and at the recently concluded Printpack India 2011, they introduced new C8000 printer.
