Corporate Profile


Konica Minolta South Africa offers a sophisticated and comprehensive range of products and services within the document imaging and management space. The company is wholly owned by the Bidvest Group, an international services, trading and distribution company, listed on the JSE and operating on four continents.

An organisation that truly believes in environmental, social and economic sustainability, as well as integrity, transparency, product excellence and exceptional service, Konica Minolta South Africa is the principal importer and distributor of the award winning bizhub range of digital multifunctional printers and production presses, in addition to laser printers and business solutions.

Originally established in Cape Town as Helios in 1905, the company went on to acquire the Minolta agency in 1967 when it introduced electro photo-static equipment to the South African market. In line with the international merger in 2003, the name then changed to Konica Minolta.

Headquartered in Johannesburg, Konica Minolta South Africa has a solid support infrastructure and distribution network in place – with 23 branches and 47 dealerships countrywide – catering for businesses of all sizes across Southern Africa.


Through the renowned bizhub product series, Konica Minolta South Africa’s Office Products division provides functionality, innovative features, quality and reliability – all delivered with a clear focus on cost effectiveness and convenience.

Aside from the core functions of copying, printing, scanning and faxing, Konica Minolta South Africa provides a host of cutting edge capabilities to meet the needs of the ever changing business environment. These include document data and network security, vibrant print quality, a low cost per print, potential environmental sustainability improvements and a number of smart workgroup features – such as the industry’s first ever capacitive multi-touch user interface, versatile and flexible digital mailbox functionality as well as leading integration customisation capabilities. These features meet the growing need for collaboration and mobility within organisations of various types and across all industry sectors.


With its extensive range of digital presses, the Digital Production printing division accommodates all production printing requirements, including both low and high volume as well as different media types. It also meets the commercial printing market’s need for variable data printing, web-to-print, transactional printing and direct mail marketing solutions.

Both the bizhub PRESS colour and black & white digital presses have garnered numerous awards from independent testing laboratories, BLi, BERTL and EDP. These products combine speed, reliability, robust design and versatility to deliver exactly what is required for digital high-volume production printing.

In addition, Konica Minolta South Africa’s staff complement includes a number of internationally qualified colour experts – of which there is only a handful worldwide. This is Konica Minolta Business Technologies’ highest achievable certification.


The Optimized Print Services (OPS) division employs an industry best practice methodology that helps curb serious operational expenses linked to the output, capturing, storage and distribution of information within a business.

With a combination of Konica Minolta’s leading technology platform and Konica Minolta South Africa’s excellent skills and competencies, the OPS offering helps companies to reach maximum efficiencies, by improving governance, enhancing productivity and dramatically reducing physical document production, thus directly improving profitability.

It achieves this by taking full responsibility of a client’s solution as a technology partner, right from the consulting stage, through implementation to post roll-out management.


Konica Minolta South Africa's Professional Services division, with its unique business offering of solutions, represents the ultimate in quality, service, technology, integration and values. The division's employees possess expert knowledge and skills across all products and third party applications thus delivering cost-effective world class solutions, making the division a pioneering force in integrated solutions with leading edge products and services.

Konica Minolta South Africa is the first company within its group and in the local industry, to achieve Microsoft Partner status with Application Development certification. This attests to its ability to seamlessly integrate bizhub devices into a range of third party document management solutions, including Microsoft SharePoint.

Through its bizhub Extended Solution Technology (bEST), the Professional Services division looks beyond the device as a commodity and provides both customised development and specialist application support. Konica Minolta Professional Services provides clients with applications needed to automate and streamline document management processes as well as implementing workflows to improve business operations.
