HP, Konica Minolta Team On Digital Copiers
Konica Minolta Holdings on Wednesday announced a tie-up with U.S. computer and printer Maker Hewlett- Packard to jointly develop digital multi-function copiers. The Japanese photo-film and copier maker will make office-use digital copiers and supply them to HP, which will sell the products through its sales network under its own brand. The two companies plan to release about five models of copiers over the next three years, with the first slated to appear in stores worldwide this fall.
