Ricoh congratulates all its volunteers for their efforts on Clean Up Australia Day 2004

On Sunday 7th March Ricoh fielded a team of 106 volunteers to participate in Clean Up Australia Day, 2004. Numbers of volunteers increased by 25% from the previous year. Representatives from Head Office and each branch gave up their time to don a pair of gloves, roll up their sleeves and get a little dirty for the sake of their local environment.
Clean up sites included Bonython Park in Adelaide, Riverside Drive in South Brisbane, Gladstone Street in Fyshwick, the Yarra River end of Church Street and nearby bike track in Richmond, Langley Park in Perth and John Fisher Park/Curl Curl Lagoon in Sydney.

Clean Up Australia Day proved to be a great team building exercise for management and staff. Lunch and refreshments back at the branches was well received by all, after an early start and a full morning of cleaning up.

Rubbish collected around the country included truck tyres, shopping trolleys, children's bikes, park benches, metal, building materials, polystyrene, plastic drink bottles and above all else cigarette butts which leak toxic chemicals into local waterways.

It was heartening to find in our second year of participation in Clean Up Australia Day we were able to cover a greater area in the same amount of time. However, the net result was less rubbish being collected. This is one day where it is definitely a case of "less is more".

Site supervisor in Sydney, Lorna Plate says "On behalf of Curl Curl Lagoon Friends I would like to thank you and your colleagues for your extensive efforts to "Clean Up" the Curl Curl Lagoon fringes on Clean Up Australia Day, 7 March 2004. We have our regulars who turn up year after year, but the assistance of your members and their enthusiastic families made the difference to what could have been a wet and miserable event. Please extend our thanks and keep up all that great environmental work you are doing at Ricoh Australia".

Ricoh are delighted to have signed a £10 million sponsorship deal to secure the international naming rights for Coventry City’s new arena.

Prestige and visibility
The Ricoh Arena is part of a £113 million multi-purpose development, which extends over 72 acres and is less than two hours drive away for 75% of the mainland UK population. It will host some of the UK’s most high profile sports and entertainment events, attracting big names such as Kylie Minogue, U2 and David Bowie.

It will also be highly visible. Both on land, with 2.5 million people visiting it and 52 million vehicles driving past each year. And in the air, since it is on the flight path for two international airports and has rooftop signage purported to be visible from the moon!

Mixing business with pleasure
For Ricoh, the venue will also provide a headquarters from which to direct several new strategic services. Ricoh already has 381 offices and 73,200 employees worldwide, including a production plant in Telford and operations in London, Middlesex and Wellingborough. However, expansion in Coventry will enable the company to achieve its 30% growth target over the next three
years.

Ricoh is the 8th largest IT company in the world, and is number one in terms of market share the European copier market. It also has existing experience of sponsoring stadiums, such as the hugely successful Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto, Canada.

Takahisa Yokoo, MD of Ricoh UK Ltd, said: “We are delighted to be involved with such a high profile and exciting development. The Ricoh Arena will be a real launch pad for our major UK expansion initiative.

Paul Fletcher, Chief Executive of Arena Coventry Ltd, which will manage the new development, is also delighted with the deal.

He commented, “Ricoh is a market leader in its field and a truly international company with multi-million businesses across the globe. This makes it the ideal partner for the Arena, which is one of the most prestigious event, conference and exhibition centres in the country.”

He also talked about the boost to the local community. “The Ricoh Arena will be a landmark building, creating a new gateway into the city and providing one of the most spectacular facilities in the country. We have been working closely with the company in the run-up to today’s signing and are developing very exciting plans for the arena. I have been involved in two major naming rights in the past but this deal – like the project as a whole – is the best yet and will result in a high profile for the arena, the city and for Ricoh.”

Ken Taylor, leader of Coventry City Council, observed that the development had already had a positive impact on the city and the region.

“This is fantastic news for the Arena and, more importantly it's fantastic news for Coventry. Ricoh is a leader in its field. The fact that the company has chosen to invest so heavily here, cements our fast growing reputation as a city that's going places.”

He went on “Our regeneration work has transformed so much of the city and is now getting an international reputation. In fact, we're already the third best city in England to do business in. Coventry will continue to flourish thanks to the hard work of local people, the many assets it has, and the growing number of international businesses who want to locate here.”

He concluded “We're delighted to be welcoming Ricoh to Coventry, as we continue the transformation of our city and look to a prosperous future for us all.”
