Kyocera Mita to become Kyocera Document Solutions

02 April 2012

Kyocera Mita announces today that its company name will change to Kyocera Document Solutions from April 2012. The change reflects the company’s growth as a global supplier of solutions to consistently develop and deliver customer benefits, technological innovation and environmental sustainability.

Information is at the heart of every organisation. Kyocera Mita has developed an enviable reputation as a trusted supplier of colour and monochrome printers and multifunctionals, devices that reliably and economically commit information to paper.

The change of name to Kyocera Document Solutions reflects its evolution into an organisation that supports hardware, software and services as an integrated package. The change confirms Kyocera Document Solutions as a business enabler for its customers, streamlining communications, enhancing productivity, reducing operating costs and simplifying day-to-day activities.

Putting solutions at the company’s heart

The new name is the latest step in a transformation that has been progressing for several years. The formation of Kyocera’s Managed Document Services (MDS) group signalled the company’s focus on the flow of information through an entire organisation as opposed to a narrower focus on printed information.

The growth of Kyocera’s Managed Document Services mirrors the expanding role of the Global Services Divisions which have been created in each country to serve Kyocera’s rising number of global accounts. These developments changed the company to such a degree that a new name is both appropriate and necessary.

Oliver Kreth, General Manager European Marketing, summarises the change: “Kyocera Document Solutions is the culmination of years of growth and planning. By placing our customers at the centre of our business and by developing a solutions and services portfolio that matches their needs we have created a robust platform for future growth”.

The growing importance of solutions

By nurturing key industry partnerships and developing own solutions Kyocera Document Solutions is perfectly placed to process information arriving in paper or electronic format, to distribute it to relevant applications or repositories and to deliver it to staff members.

The advantage of channel delivery

Kyocera Document Solutions’ comprehensive range of hardware and software solutions are expertly supported by channel partners. They combine the local delivery and responsiveness customers demand with the expertise and backup of a global corporation like Kyocera Document Solutions.

Kyocera’s founding philosophy

Some things however are best left alone, like ECOSYS celebrating 20 year anniversary in 2012, will continue to be a focus area to improve sustainability by providing long life components. Kyocera Document Solutions is supported by a unique corporate philosophy incorporating a commitment to excellence, the environment and individual fulfilment. The synergy between a highly-trained and motivated workforce, the company’s philosophical heritage and superior technology delivers tangible benefits to its customers around the world.
