Marking 30th Anniversary, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. Acquires Muratec America

Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. reports that it’s acquired Muratec America, a supplier of copier/MFPs and managed document and cloud services in North America, for an undisclosed sum. Konica Minolta says that the acquisition, which closes today, will strengthen its distribution network and “further advance Konica Minolta’s leading position within the industry.”

It also says that Muratec is “well-positioned and has shown steady growth over the years, both in solutions and services sectors.”

As a wholly owned, consolidated subsidiary of Konica Minolta, Muratec America will continue to provide  sales and maintenance business and will operate under the leadership of Muratec President Jim D’Emidio.

“Historically we’ve had a mutual and complementary product lineup with Muratec making this acquisition a great platform to create new synergies together,” said Rick Taylor, president and CEO of Konica Minolta. “The fact that the fundamentals of both of these companies align and we both strive to be the best in every region, makes this a perfect fit.”

“Muratec and Konica Minolta have had a very close relationship for many  years,” stated Jim D’Emidio, President, Muratec. “With the strength of Konica Minolta, I am confident we will achieve even more significant growth and provide stronger support to our customers.”

The acquisition marks Konica Minolta Business Solutions’ 30th acquisition in the past five years.

Muratec America entered the U.S. market in 1982 as Murata Business Systems to sell fax machines through private-label agreements with multiple U.S. companies. The company changed its name in 1992 to Muratec and realigned to focus sales and distribution exclusively through a national business-to-business-dealer channel.
