Konica Minolta Business Technologies has named Bidvest
company, Konica Minolta South Africa as the best global performer for 2010
at its annual recent conference held in Shanghai, China. This marks
the sixth consecutive win for the local company, which competed against
29 other rival countries this year.
According to Konica Minolta South Africa MD, Alan Griffith, the award was made based on the total number of units sold over the year.
“Konica Minolta South Africa saw a fantastic 38 percent year on year growth over 2010.
We have seen a slow but sure recovery from the recession locally
and it is most heartening to experience such an improvement in demand.
“Being positioned as number one globally
by Konica Minolta Business Technologies only serves
to reinforce the fact that we have 968 unbelievable people within the
company and that bizhub truly is the number one MFP brand in South Africa,” he says.
In addition to winning the event’s most prestigious award, Konica
Minolta South Africa’s Arthur Pereira was named as the winner of the world colour champions league. This means that, as an individual,
Pereira sold the most colour machines worldwide for 2010.
“We are extremely proud of Arthur’s achievements,” Griffith states.
“He joined Konica Minolta South Africa 17 years ago as a technician
before deciding to give the sales side a try.
From humble beginnings as an inexperienced sales person
who had to start off with new accounts, our customers’
regard for Arthur is quite obvious and this is certainly reflected in his recent award win.
“We believe that both of these accolades give current and new clients even greater
security in the knowledge that they are dealing with the best supplier in the market,” he adds.
