This Week in the Copier/Office Equipment Industry 10 Years Ago Third Week of April 2005

It's interesting how our industry changes right?  I took a quick peek at the first head line from ten years ago, "Konica Minolta acquires Largest.....".  Manufacturers acquiring dealers has slowed down in recent years, but on the flip side, our manufacturers have picked up the pace to acquire companies that will help them accelerate their services offerings.  In fact, the recent acquisition of Kofax by Lexmark was a bombshell.  Look for more of that to happen in the very near future.

          Usually the policy here is we only service what we sell. All our service contracts on laser printers are a one price annual contract, and no meter. On Ricoh web site this, once again shows Ricoh doesn't care about the local dealers.
