Ricoh Electronic Devices Co., Ltd.
We will inform about inauguration of Ricoh Electronic Devices.
In line with its 18th Mid-Term Management Plan for the three years starting in April 2014, Ricoh will pursue group synergy by combining its comprehensive strengths to reinforce the industrial products business as a new business pillar to succeed the imaging & solutions business.
As part of strengthening of the industrial business, the spinoff of the electronic devices business with an environment and model different from Ricoh’s core imaging & solutions business will be implemented with the aim of expediting decision-making based on independence and autonomy and develop an efficient management infrastructure suitable for the business, thereby increasing its competitiveness in the fast changing market environment for semiconductors.
