MJ Flood Appointed Exclusive Distributor for Konica Minolta's €35 Million Business in Ireland
Dublin, Ireland - 23 Feb 2010
Ireland's largest privately-owned business equipment company, MJ Flood today announced their appointment as exclusive distributor for Konica Minolta's €35 million print solutions business in Ireland.
The partnership recognises MJ Flood's technical expertise and nationwide reach by building on the company's relationship with Konica Minolta's subsidiary, Develop – a brand which MJ Flood has distributed since 2003. The appointment follows the recent acquisition by Xerox of Irish Business Systems, which had previously distributed the Konica Minolta brand in Ireland.
MJ Flood will distribute the entire range of Konica Minolta products, providing the latest print management services, such as Konica Minolta's Optimized Print Services (OPS) that manage printing infrastructures and services to fit individual business needs.
Established in 1935, MJ Flood is one of Ireland's most successful business equipment companies with a solid financial standing and long track record of serving customers across public and private sectors. "We have had a long-standing relationship with Konica Minolta which spans over 30 years, having distributed Konica in Ireland, prior to its merger with Minolta in 2003," explains Michael Power, Director of MJ Flood.
"Our appointment to support and grow both the Konica Minolta and Develop brands, with almost one-third domestic market share, reflects our success in helping customers to manage their documentation requirements in a cost-effective, professional and environmentally-friendly fashion."
"We chose MJ Flood Ireland as our exclusive partner for many reasons," comments Anton Eckert, Senior Area Manager Business Operations, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe GmbH. "Their unrivalled branch network, nationwide reach and technical experience with both Konica Minolta and Develop products position them as the ideal partner to help us optimise sales opportunities and grow our business base in Ireland."
MJ Flood will continue to sell the Develop brand in Ireland, through an indirect channel model.
