Konica Minolta South Africa offers a sophisticated and comprehensive range of products and services within the document imaging
and management space. The company is wholly owned by the Bidvest Group, an international services, trading and distribution
company, listed on the JSE and operating on four continents.
An organisation that truly believes in environmental, social and economic sustainability, as well as integrity, transparency, product
excellence and exceptional service, Konica Minolta South Africa is the principal importer and distributor of the award winning bizhub
range of digital multifunctional printers and production presses, in addition to laser printers and business solutions.
Originally established in Cape Town as Helios in 1905, the company went on to acquire the Minolta agency in 1972 when it introduced
electro photo-static equipment to the South African market. In line with the international merger in 2003, the name then changed
to Konica Minolta.
Headquartered in Johannesburg, Konica Minolta South Africa has a solid support infrastructure and distribution network in place –
with 17 branches and 49 dealerships countrywide – catering for businesses of all sizes across southern Africa.
Through the renowned bizhub product series, Konica Minolta South Africa’s Office Products division provides functionality, innovative
features, quality and reliability – all delivered with a clear focus on cost effectiveness and convenience.
Aside from the core functions of copying, printing, scanning and faxing, Konica Minolta South Africa provides a host of cutting edge
capabilities to meet the needs of the ever changing business environment. These include document data and network security, vibrant
print quality, a low cost per print, potential environmental sustainability improvements and a number of smart workgroup features
– such as the industry’s first ever capacitive multi-touch user interface, versatile and flexible digital mailbox functionality as well as
leading integration customisation capabilities. These features meet the growing need for collaboration and mobility within organisations
of various types and across all industry sectors.
With its extensive range of digital presses, the Digital Production printing division accommodates all production printing requirements,
including both low and high volume as well as different media types. It also meets the commercial printing market’s need for variable
data printing, web-to-print, transactional printing and direct mail marketing solutions.
Both the bizhub PRESS colour and black & white digital presses have garnered numerous awards from independent testing laboratories,
BLi, BERTL and EDP. These products combine speed, reliability, robust design and versatility to deliver exactly what is required for
digital high-volume production printing.
In addition, Konica Minolta South Africa’s staff complement includes a number of internationally qualified colour experts – of which
there is only a handful worldwide. This is Konica Minolta Business Technologies’ highest achievable certification.
The Optimized Print Services (OPS) division employs an industry best practice methodology that helps curb serious operational
expenses linked to the output, capturing, storage and distribution of information within a business.
With a combination of Konica Minolta’s leading technology platform and Konica Minolta South Africa’s excellent skills and
competencies, the OPS offering helps companies to reach maximum efficiencies, by improving governance, enhancing productivity
and dramatically reducing physical document production, thus directly improving profitability.
It achieves this by taking full responsibility of a client’s solution as a technology partner, right from the consulting stage, through
implementation to post roll-out management.
Konica Minolta South Africa's Professional Services division, with its unique business offering of solutions, represents the ultimate
in quality, service, technology, integration and values. The division's employees possess expert knowledge and skills across all
products and third party applications thus delivering cost-effective world class solutions, making the division a pioneering force
in integrated solutions with leading edge products and services.
Konica Minolta South Africa is the first company within its group and in the local industry, to achieve Microsoft Partner status with
Application Development certification. This attests to its ability to seamlessly integrate bizhub devices into a range of third party
document management solutions, including Microsoft SharePoint.
Through its bizhub Extended Solution Technology (bEST), the Professional Services division looks beyond the device as a commodity
and provides both customised development and specialist application support. Konica Minolta Professional Services provides clients
with applications needed to automate and streamline document management processes as well as implementing workflows to
improve business operations.
