Konica Minolta Says Monotech Acquisition Will Quadruple Its Production-Print Sales Branches in India

India_holidays_list_2014April 8, 2015 – Konica Minolta of Japan today announced that Konica Minolta Business Solutions India (BIN), its Indian sales subsidiary for its Business Technologies Business, will acquire Monotech System Limited, a major production-print dealer based in Chennai, India. The acquisition in the fast-growing Indian market is part of Konica Minolta’s initiatives in enhancing its production-printing business in emerging economies.

Through the acquisition, the firm says Konica Minolta BIN will not only quadruple the number of its sales branches in India for production printing, but also extend its sales network throughout India.

Monotech was established in 1999, and has some 444 employees. It provides sales and maintenance services for digital printers, pre-press systems, wide-format printers, and label and package-printing equipment throughout India. In its fiscal 2013 year, it reported sales of 2 billion Indian Rupees.

Monotech is a major production-print sales company that has a network of branches throughout India. Upon completion of the acquisition, Monotech’s sales network will become local branches for Konica Minolta BIN direct sales.

In addition to its main markets in Japan, the United States, and Europe, Konica Minolta has been expanding its production-print business in emerging markets with the same digital-print systems and services as provided in advanced economies.

Konica Minolta Business Solutions India was established in July 2010. After opening its Digital Imaging Square, a digital-printing solution and communications space for production printing in Gurgaon in the state of Haryana, in July 2013, the firm says it’s been growing its business in India by providing products and services mainly through dealerships for a large number of customers in the printing-related trades and in photo studios.

Konica Minolta BIN and Monotech entered into a definitive acquisition on April 4th. Konica Minolta expects to transfer Monotech’s production-print business to Konica Minolta BIN on June 1, 2015.
