    Over the past few weeks, Konica Minolta has commissioned a consulting firm to thoroughly assess its businesses and define a more efficient organizational structure. The upcoming reorganization aims at "operational excellence" at Konica Minolta and focuses on standardizing and optimizing processes. The reorganization also takes into account the general market situation in the printing industry.

    "Our intention to reorganize our company as an IT services provider and outsource activities is inevitable due to the market situation," explains Johannes Bischof, Managing Director of Konica Minolta Cluster West. "The extent of the outsourcing is not yet definite, but after the experience in our industry, we expect that approximately 250 jobs will be affected." The reorganization concerns Konica Minolta's activities in Austria, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium and the European headquarters in Langenhagen.

    In the coming weeks, the sales and finance managers will work with the consulting firm to determine the processes involved, and decide which functions will remain in the organization and which will be outsourced. Initial discussions with works councils and union representatives in all affected countries have already taken place. Further information will be announced after reaching the first milestones, which is expected in early July.

    "We understand that these decisions are painful for those affected, but this change is inevitable. The adjustments we are making will enable us to offer our customers more efficient IT services and related products in the future, and to remain competitive and cost-effective in the medium and long term, "emphasizes Bishop.

    At the same time, the manufacturer also confirms its commitment to the location in Langenhagen near Hanover. "Langenhagen is an excellent location for our European business," says Bishop. "Langenhagen is located in the heart of Germany, one of our largest markets in Europe, and in the heart of Europe, the largest market for Konica Minolta worldwide. In addition, the location Germany means for us to have access to the German labor market and thus to highly qualified specialists. "
