Konica Minolta was originally two separate firms that then merged together in 2003. The Konica corporation first began in 1873 selling photographic and lithographic materials and the Minolta corporation first began in 1928 also focussing on camera processing, and was then known as the Japan-Germany Camera Company.
In 1960 Minolta released its first copier the Minolta Copymaster. After merging the company began to move away from cameras and photo imaging and moved more towards business and printing solutions. Konica Minolta say they exist to create new value through their unique innovation.
Within the UK Konica Minolta are considered one of the industry leaders, gaining popularity and building on their reputation for designing compact, convenient and efficient photocopiers.
