How we have been transforming the workplace for more than 80 years

80 years of global innovation 

Ricoh was founded in 1936 in Tokyo, Japan and today, we reach customers in around 200 countries worldwide through our 80,000 employees.  

Our European business was established in 1971. Today, Ricoh Europe has around 14,500 employees and is present in 25 countries across the EMEA region, and our extensive partner network spans more than 120 countries across Europe, Middle-East and Africa.

The Ricoh Way – our company philosophy

The Ricoh Way includes our mission, vision and values. These elements define how we do business and deliver value for customers, partners and society.
We call our founding principles ‘the Spirit of Three Loves’ – Love your neighbour, Love your country, Love your work. Formulated in 1946 by our founder Kiyoshi Ichimura, the Three Loves encourage us to continuously improve and contribute to the wellbeing of all stakeholders including our families, customers and communities.

Our global mission and vision

At Ricoh, we empower individuals to find Fulfilment through Work by understanding and transforming how people work so we can unleash their potential and creativity to realise a sustainable future.

Our legacy of innovation

We have a proud history of innovation in the workspace. From our early days in pioneering printer and facsimile design to our current focus on bringing people, technology and processes together for business transformation, innovation has always been at the core of our business.
Our technology innovation is supported by a solid foundation in research and development, with more than 5% of total sales revenue reinvested in R&D each year. We’re consistently named among the Top 100 Global Innovators, the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations, and one of the World's Most Ethical Companies.
