A Word from Mr. Koji Yoshida, Managing Director of Konica Minolta Business Solutions Asia

“Throughout my career with Konica Minolta, the only constant has been change. I am pleased to take on the role of Managing Director of Konica Minolta Business Solutions Asia and am excited for the future of potential growth in the SEA region” said Mr. Koji Yoshida. “With businesses increasingly becoming digital focused, there is much room for growth in the SEA region. With the recent opening of CEC APAC, we believe the print industry is here to stay, but we must continue to innovate with our technologies and digital solutions. Our goal is to continue serving our clients with the same customer-centric experiences they have come to expect from Konica Minolta, while driving digital transformation to serve them better.”

Coming in at a challenging time for the industry, Mr. Koji Yoshida will focus on digital transformation through Konica Minolta’s various solutions such as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Smart Monitoring while continuing to strengthen its core business with the upcoming launch of AccurioPress C4080 Series and AccurioJet KM-1e.

“The upcoming launches of AccurioPress C4080 Series and AccurioJet KM-1e signal our continued investment into the production and industrial print market and brings further improvements to an already established product line-up. As a business solutions provider, we will continue to provide new solutions that cater to the needs of our clients. We look forward to serving the APAC region in the coming years.” said Mr. Koji Yoshida.
