London, UK | 25 April 2023

Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd and Agilico Workplace Technology are celebrating a remarkable 50 years of partnership.

We have worked closely with Konica Minolta for around half a century and it continues to be a true partnership because they listen to us and support our combined business. They also continue to provide us with fantastic market-leading products and services which are vital to our customers.

Simon Davey

CEO of Agilico Workplace technology

Today Agilico has three distinct divisions – Agile Print, which is the largest independent Managed Print Service business in the UK, Agile Docs is its consulting and software business, and Agile Tech supports its customers with IT and Telecoms services. The business boasts an impressive 40,000 Machines in Field (MIF) and has around 500 staff which look after nearly 14,000 customers across multiple sectors.
The partnership continues to evolve to meet the needs of the market and the two companies are working in closely to address the need for greater sustainability. As part of its commitment to the circular economy, Agilico has created a brand new, purpose built national MFD (multi-function device) refurbishment centre in Leicester to give a new lease of life to ex-showroom and low-utilisation machines.
The close and ingrained working relationship between Konica Minolta and Agilico made collaborating successfully together on the National Refurbishment Centre a much easier proposition, as Simon Davey elaborated, “Konica Minolta builds fantastic products, and we know them inside out. This means that when we refurbish a Konica Minolta machine, we have the right knowledge and manufacturer support, so you can be sure it will last for many years to come.”

We are very proud to produce world-class technology that lasts. Working in collaboration with Agilico we are ensuring we address the circular economy challenges by making sure our technology can be reused in the most effective way. Customers now have an even wider choice – either new or great used technology from Konica Minolta, through Agilico, to strike the perfect balance of matching requirements and budget.

CEO of Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd

The stringent refurbishment process reflects Agilico’s ethos of quality and service, as Simon Davey added, “Every part of our business is about quality - from the workshop where we build the machines to our customer service, be that answering the phone to the customers or when we're meeting face to face. This is an underlying principle that we proudly share with Konica Minolta.”
Having a strong working relationship is equally important for customers, as Rob Ferris commented, “Our customers need the right help and advice on the best solutions for their needs, particularly in the current economic climate. Businesses need expert guidance to choose how they get the best return on their investments. That could be new or used technology, or indeed a blend of both. This Agilico refurbishment initiative really helps to drive that agenda and we are proud to be working in partnership to support it.”
