LG and Ricoh agree on European partnership


LG and Ricoh have agreed to embark on a European partnership that will give businesses access to the tech giant’s range of display devices through a single trusted partner.

Effective from 1 April, companies of all sizes and across all sectors will have access to LG technology through Ricoh’s Communications Services portfolio, including market-leading products such as LG’s UHD IPS displays.

Customers will have access to crystal-clear screens that meet the needs of everything from smart meeting spaces to digital signage solutions, the companies said.

Mutually agreed during this year’s Integrated Systems Europe event, the partnership further strengthens the pair’s already long-standing relationship.

“This exciting agreement further strengthens the longstanding relationship between Ricoh and LG while reflecting our common drive for innovation,” said David Mills, CEO of Ricoh Europe. “By incorporating LG technology within our Communication Services offering, we provide our customers with access to a growing portfolio of innovative solutions and technical expertise.

“Combining our international capabilities with LG’s cutting-edge technology is another way we are empowering digital workplaces.”

The reseller has also bolstered its knowledge and expertise, with LG recently certifying a team of Ricoh Europe Communication Services specialists for working with its self-illuminating OLED technology.

The combination of LG’s research and development alongside Ricoh’s design, delivery and support capabilities will help ensure customers can use the most advanced communications tech with ease, the companies added.

“We’re proud to collaborate with such a reliable and conscientious partner,” said Kyongho Kim, President of LG Business Solutions Europe. “Together, we can offer customers the most innovative solutions for all of their communication needs. The future promises to bring great advances, both for the partnership and our customers.”
