Change is afoot at Bidvest company, Konica Minolta South Africa, as it gears up to meet the changing demands of the document production and management sector.
The company has reorganised its product division in order to segment the marketplace into office products and light production printing systems.
"With the convergence of digital black & white and colour devices into very similar markets, we felt that it was time to combine these products into one division, called Office Products," explains Konica Minolta South Africa MD, Alan Griffith.
"In keeping with Konica Minolta Japan’s strategic vision of a greater presence in light production printing, it was decided that this division should now have specialist attention and we believe that we have made use of the best resources in our company to achieve these aims."
Marianna Gdanis will head up the business unit as business unit manager, while Leon Minnie has been named as Konica Minolta Production Systems product specialist and Andrew Griffith as Konica Minolta Office Products product manager. In addition, Paul Symonds has been appointed as branch manager of the company’s Johannesburg office.
