Tagline: The essential of imaging
On January 7, 2003, a significant event took place - the formation of the holding Konica Minolta, as a result of the merger of two well-known Japanese manufacturers of photographic equipment: Konica и Minolta. The result of the merger was not only a new formation, but also a new logo, in which there is much more from "Minolts"than from "Koniki".
The holding is engaged in products not designed for the mass market. These are medical equipment, office equipment (MFPs, printers, copiers, faxes), measuring devices, various industrial optics and much more. Once upon a time, the company's portfolio also included cameras, film, photographic paper, and the like. However, in 2006, it was decided to abandon the production of cameras, due to large losses. The business was sold to the company Sony, resulting in the emergence of a lineup Sony Alpha. As for photographic film and the like, this production was finally curtailed in 2007, for obvious reasons. Production of photographic paper moved to the company Dai Nippon Printing.
Headquarters Konica Minolta located in Tokyo, Japan (Tokyo, Japan). About 36,000 people work at the company's factories. Representations are scattered all over the world.
