Malvern, Pennsylvania-based Ricoh USA, a manufacturer of commercial inkjet printheads, large-format printers and office imaging equipment, announces two new U.S. facilities, including a new U.S. headquarters.
As part of a multi-year investment to upgrade and modernize its U.S. facilities across the country, Ricoh is moving its headquarters from Malvern to Exton, Pennsylvania, eight miles away. Also, the company’s facility in West Caldwell, New Jersey, will move to nearby Parsippany.
“Similar to how we’ve been helping our customers empower their digital workplaces to better serve their customers, the time is right to embrace change and further enhance employee collaboration within Ricoh’s own offices,” says Donna Venable, executive vice president, human resources, and deputy general manager, shared services, for Ricoh Americas. “On top of incredible collaborative technologies, these new offices offer informal meeting spaces that are great for spontaneous brainstorming, quick collaboration, or just building a better rapport among colleagues. I am extremely pleased that both facilities are located near our existing offices. Ricoh remains grateful and committed to the local communities that continue to support us, as employees, partners and customers.”
The company says its new facilities will be equipped with Ricoh’s own next-generation collaboration and productivity solutions, such as unified communications systems, intelligent multifunction printers, interactive flat panel displays and projectors.
According to recent research commissioned by Ricoh, 66% of workers in North America believe technology should play a central role in helping them work to the best of their abilities, and 74% believe the best workplaces invest in digital technologies for up-skilling staff.
