Ricoh acquire Fujitsu scanners

26 April 2022

Yesterday 25th April, Nikkei Asia published an article, since confirmed, that Ricoh are buying Fujitsu’s scanner business for 625 million USD / 584 million Euros. The deal is expected to be formalised later this week, before the end of April.

Fujitsu is a major Japanese corporation, and this acquisition is for 80% of PFU, the arm of the Fujitsu corporation developing and commercialising office and production scanning equipment, and the software which accompanies it.

Along with most printer manufacturers, Ricoh are striving to become a more generic provider of business digital services. An area in which Ricoh want to enhance their offering is in the automation of paper-based data capture in the banking sector. PFU technology will help them advance towards this goal quickly. Fujitsu scanners are excellent machines, but it is in the area of capturing data for the cloud that they truly excel.

All Fujitsu personal, office, departmental and production scanners are included in the DataMaster Lab database, as are all Ricoh printing equipment. Ricoh has a similar breadth of reach, from A4 right up to digital production presses. Check out our lab results which inclulde productivity and image quality results - and you will conclude this acquisition is sure to be a fruitful one.
