Our products have been accepted well by our customers that include commercial printers, print shops, corporates, SME, etc.”

He further added “Globally, we are recognised for our excellent color print quality. The unique proposition of Konica Minolta’s range of machines is the remarkable high image quality and consistent results through the entire print run. In view of the success achieved in such a short period for Product Printing and A3 MFPs, we have recently forayed into the A-4 printer segment too with a range of Monochrome and Color Laser Printers / MFPs.”
