Ricoh announced yesterday that it had purchased DPS Business Centre, which distributes digital printers and photocopiers. DPS has been a Ricoh dealer since 1998.
Managing director Les Richardson said: "We believe that the Northern Territory will be one of the strongest growth areas in Australia over the next 10 years.
"When the opportunity arose, it was a simple decision to acquire DPS – through them we have had a successful and long standing relationship with the Territory.
"This acquisition offers an excellent opportunity to expand our consulting and document management solutions to Australia’s top end."
DPS is Ricoh's first Northern Territory acquisition. The company told ProPrint it was not currently considering any other acquisitions.
