Konica Minolta and MGI Digital Technology (MGI) have expanded their cooperation with new initiatives to benefit customers in a single-source partnership approach. These will further accelerate common go-to-market activities within commercial and industrial digital printing markets.
The close strategic and financial cooperation between the two companies was first established in 2014 and expanded in 2016 with an increase of the stake in MGI to 40.5%. As a result, Konica Minolta added MGI products for production, label and packaging printing to its existing portfolio.
In future, a new combined logo will be applied for all dedicated common marketing activities when Konica Minolta and MGI appear as partners. The two companies are also intensifying their links in Germany and Austria. Under an expanded cooperation, MGI systems will be sold directly through Konica Minolta’s distribution network. Likewise, Konica Minolta will support MGI customers as a single point of contact for all service, support, and administration topics. Customers will thus benefit from a dense network of Konica Minolta employees for onsite support and further development of the respective customer solution.
