Ricoh Europe strengthens Swedish Operations
05 October 2009 – Ricoh Europe today announced its plans to strengthen its presence in Sweden and is setting-up new operations called Ricoh Sverige AB. The new company will provide enhanced product and service offerings for Swedish businesses, making document workflows more efficient, productive, secure and sustainable. It will be formed by combining two of Sweden’s leading office solutions companies; Carl Lamm Holding AB and NRG Scandinavia. Carl Lamm was acquired by Ricoh Europe Holdings PLC in May 2009 and NRG Scandinavia was already a successful part of the Ricoh Group.
Both companies bring a range of unique strengths and capabilities to Ricoh Sverige AB. Carl Lamm Holding is highly respected for its sales and service expertise and recognised as one of the industry's most well-established and successful companies in Sweden. NRG Scandinavia brings Ricoh’s expertise in advanced document solutions combined with a wide global network. Ricoh Sverige AB will continue offering IT services, office solutions and production printing.
The Ricoh Group vision is to be the leading global solution provider in the document management industry. The creation of Ricoh Sverige AB aligns with this vision by enabling Ricoh to extend its offerings in Sweden and work more effectively with its customers in the Nordic region.
The new company demonstrates Ricoh's commitment to the Swedish market. Ricoh Sverige will have more than 600 employees and be represented by 26 offices within the region. It also works closely with approximately 30 closely-allied dealers across Sweden.
“Joining forces and being a part of the extensive global Ricoh network is very exciting. Now we will be able to offer a unique level of service and broaden our range of products and services. Another exciting aspect is that we will now be able to help Swedish customers find enhanced solutions both for the Swedish market and for their operations in other parts of the world,” says Hans Johansson Chairman, Ricoh Sverige AB.
Ricoh is at the forefront of modernising work environments. Ricoh's value led research and development ensures that Innovation, Sustainability and Expertise are at the heart of all operations, services, solutions and hardware.
