Konica Minolta South Africa, a Bidvest company, has, for the seventh consecutive year, won the international Konica Minolta Distributor of the Year award, again outperforming more economically developed countries.

The annual award is presented by Konica Minolta Business Technologies Japan and is based on total number of unit sales in addition to the size of the territories involved.

“Holding our number one position in the Konica Minolta world dealer family for the seventh successive year is a great accomplishment,” says Konica Minolta South Africa MD, Alan Griffith, who accepted the award with business unit manager, Marianna Gdanis in Jakarta, Indonesia. “The award recognises a company’s performance by measuring market share per country and we believe that our success is due to our focus on the bizhub brand as a whole. The brand is more prominent than ever before in South Africa and has built up a well-deserved reputation amongst customers.”

He adds that the award is especially encouraging for all Konica Minolta South Africa employees, especially as trading conditions in today’s business market still remain tough. “Konica Minolta South Africa employees have a healthy appetite for continued success, and this has contributed to the strong growth within the company,” he says.
