Konica Minolta Acquires Vegas Dealership and Wichita’s Largest Copier/Printer Business
Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. recently acquired Nevada Business Systems, Inc., a full-service Konica Minolta dealer servicing Las Vegas and Clark County, and Business Systems, Inc. (BSI) and its affiliate, BTW Services, Inc. (BTW), the largest suppliers of digital office equipment in the Wichita, Kansas area.
Nevada Business Systems will operate as a subsidiary of Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. and maintain its Las Vegas headquarters and roster of 20 employees. Konica Minolta purchased Nevada Business Systems from Gary Martin, a 42-year veteran of the copier industry, who will continue to run the day-to-day operations of the company.
"Konica Minolta’s continued technical innovation has been critical to our success as about 60 percent of our installations are now connected devices, compared to only 10 percent a year ago," said Martin.
BSI and BTW are transitioning from Canon to Konica Minolta products. The companies have a combined 43 employees, with an average tenure of over 15 years.
"To remain a world-class leader in the industry, we are continually seeking opportunities to increase our market share across all regions," said Jun Haraguchi, president and CEO, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. "BSI and BTW share Konica Minolta's vision and commitment to deliver quality, excellence and ongoing technological leadership to its customers, and are well established in their market."
