The greatest asset of a company, a country, and the Earth itself is the imagination of its people. Through creatively and collaboration people can improve the way communities live and work together.
From the very beginning, Ricoh has been energised by the belief in the power of creative ideas. Our founder, Kiyoshi Ichimura, nurtured a unique pool of thinkers who refused to be limited by tradition. They envisioned a world where information could be copied precisely and distributed at the touch of a button—a world where critical business knowledge was available anywhere, anytime.
Ricoh made this vision a reality through a potent combination of technology, engineering, and quality manufacturing. Our printers, copiers and fax machines spearheaded the era of office automation and revolutionised business operations. More recently, managed document services have established our reputation as a global document expert.
