Konica Minolta’s journey started 150 years ago, with a vision to see and do things differently. We innovate for the good of society and the world. The same purpose that kept us moving then, keeps us moving now. We help our clients champion the digital era.
Since its founding in 1873, Konica Minolta has continued to innovate. Its ground-breaking transformative technologies of today have been refined and improved over more than a century and always aim to deliver social value.
Our roots are in the field of imaging and still form the basis for our vision "Imaging to the People". This is because we use our original imaging technologies in combination with data processing and data-based decision making to identify the immediate problems of our clients and society and develop solutions for them. In doing so, we aim to realise our social purpose: "Support people to achieve their own purpose" and "Realise a sustainable society".
What guides us in realising this vision is our philosophy "The Creation of New Value", because our goal is to always create new economic and social value for our customers and society through innovation. And we’re proud to have been named, for the second time in a row, among the Top 100 Global Innovators 2023 by Clarivate Plc.
Our clients come from all sectors: small and medium-sized businesses, large companies, or the public sector.
In Europe, our portfolio is divided into four areas:
With the Intelligent Connected Workplace (ICW), our forceful goal is to empower people and organisations to cope with increasingly mobile and flexible work environments. By taking complexity out of workplace processes we help people get work done, simply and easily. We deliver holistic digital workplace solutions that make data more secure and compliant, information better accessible, work more productive and infrastructure simpler to manage. Our portfolio for the ICW includes cloud, managed IT, managed print, video solutions, collaboration, security and workflow management & automation services for office, home and hybrid work environments. We have been a Microsoft Global Managed Partner since 2021 and thus have one of the world's best-known and most successful IT partners at our side. Our success is also expressed in numerous awards and recognitions, such as those confirmed by IDC, who recognised us globally as a leader in print transformation.
We’re igniting print possibilities. From conquering new markets, to embracing new techniques, and creating ever more unique customer experiences. Our Igniting Print Possibilities offering helps printers, converters and brand owners maximise workflow automation to increase efficiency. We deliver consultancy in all communication matters as well as top-of-the-line production, packaging as well as label printers. Our finishing devices create print products that stand out and create added value. The success proves us right: We have been the market leader for production printing (A3 cut-sheet market) in Europe for more than a decade (InfoSource). Also in the label printing market in Europe, we are the leading brand in digital with 26% market share according to Infosource (2021).
Today’s healthcare market is heavily influenced by trends such as demanding patients expecting highly individual care, healthcare insurers exerting more and more influence on how care is to be provided, and healthcare organisations faced by budget constraints and increased pressure to keep costs in check. Our advanced healthcare solutions cut through the complexities of your IT processes by automating and optimising document-related processes to simplify information flows and make medical information accessible and compliant. On top of that, we provide the hospital and clinic market with highly-acclaimed, high-performance digital diagnostic X-ray imaging systems.

"Imaging to the People" – this is our vision that drives us.
