UNITED KINGDOM , June 9, 2023 (press release) –

Ricoh UK is helping customers achieve their sustainability goals with the introduction of the new IM C range of A3 colour multifunction printers (MFP). Made from at least 50% post-consumer recycled materials - ten times better than the previous model - this new range of all-in-one office devices is Ricoh’s most sustainable to date.


The upgrades also include a 45% reduction in panel power usage, enhanced image quality, an updated processor which will double the speed of production and a 50% reduction in plastic packaging, resulting in nearly a 20% reduction in carbon footprint across the lifetime of the machine.


Phil Keoghan, CEO of Ricoh Northern Europe, commented: “At Ricoh we have a long and proud history of innovation, and are committed to putting sustainable and efficient work at the core of everything we do.” 


“We recognise that our customers’ operating models and printing needs have evolved in recent years. There is an increased requirement for print operations to be more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly. The new IM C range represents a seed change for the industry. With the lowest energy consumption and energy costs available today, it is currently the most environmentally friendly and sustainable laser MFP on the market.”


The new upgrades bring a host of additional benefits to users, including increased performance and security along with a reduction in energy usage, making them more cost-effective as well as more sustainable to operate. All upgrades ensure the new MFPs can facilitate workflow automation and document management integration, helping Ricoh customers on their journey to digital workspace transformation.
