KYOCERA Document Solutions America Extends Its Award-Winning Line of Black & White ECOSYS® Printers

FAIRFIELD, N.J. – October 2, 2012 - KYOCERA Document Solutions America, Inc., one of the world's leading document solutions companies, has announced the release of four mid-range ECOSYS® black-and-white desktop printers. Featuring Kyocera’s hallmark low total cost of ownership, the FS-4300DN, FS-4200DN, FS-4100DN, and FS-2100DN also boast output speeds and image quality that far exceed the standards of today’s users.

This eco-friendly drum design, which is separates the toner container, allows users to replenish toner without sacrificing the drum—thus reducing consumable costs and landfill waste. ECOSYS printers also conserve energy and associated costs by switching to standby mode when not in use; they are Energy Star™ certified for their operating efficiency.

Printer Costs and the Environment

Printer Costs and the Environment

You can save money and save the planet at the same time 

When it comes to printers, a commitment to the environment and a desire to reduce costs are far from contradictory goals. Quite the opposite: fewer disposable components results in lower costs and less waste, and buying an eco-friendly printer will save you money in the long run. 

We’re sure you’ve heard the stats about how “E-waste” (that’s waste from electronics) comprises a large and growing part of worldwide landfill. In 2005, the Economist reported that 8% of all municipal landfill in Europe was E-waste, and that E-waste comprises some of the most toxic materials that could be found in the landfill. Reports have ascribed roughly 40% of the lead in landfill to E-waste, and about 70% of the heavy metals in landfill, including toxic chemicals like mercury and cadmium, can be ascribed to E- aste. Printing products, of course, make up a considerable proportion of E-waste.

What you’ve probably not heard so much about is how you can reduce the amount of waste your office produces by using eco-friendly printer designs. It’s not uncommon for business managers to have the misconception that eco-friendliness is at best irrelevant, at worst a burden on the bottom line. When it comes to printing, however, nothing could be further from the truth.

It’s an oft-repeated truism that the cost of feeding a printer, copier or MFD over the course of its lifespan is likely to far exceed the cost of buying it in the first place. In fact, it’s likely that the initial purchase cost of a business printer will represent only a fraction, in some cases as little as 10-15%, of the money spent on that printer over the course of its life. This is often referred to as the “Total Cost of Ownership” or “TCO”. Maintenance, power, toner and management – the ongoing costs of running a printer – are the larger cost elements that are often ignored by printer purchasers.

Hardware Prices See First Increase in Years

By George Mikolay, Senior Product Editor, A3/Copier MFPs, June 4, 2012

For the first time in many years, document imaging device manufacturers have increased prices. In the past two to three months, the US branches of Canon, Konica Minolta, Ricoh, Toshiba and Sharp have all increased prices on the majority of their hardware by approximately 5 percent on average. The only U.S.-based branches that have not increased prices are KYOCERA Document Solutions America and Xerox, and neither plans to have an increase in prices, at least in the near-term future.

So why the increase? The chief factor is the weak U.S. dollar relative to the Japanese yen. Because the U.S.-based branches of the hardware manufacturers buy product from their respective Japan-based parent companies, the conversion rate results is higher.

Kyocera Announces New Solutions, Hardware and Branding at 2012 Dealer Show

By Dan DiGiacomo, Associate Editor, May 16, 2012

While the theme of Kyocera’s 2012 Pan-American Dealer Meeting urged attendees to “Focus on Success,” the company also had several changes to announce, including new global branding and new U.S. leadership. Ed Bialecki, senior vice president of sales for Kyocera Document Solutions America, Inc., led the meeting’s general session at The Venetian in Las Vegas with the announcement that, as of April 1, the organization had officially changed its name globally to KYOCERA Document Solutions and appointed Nori Ina as president and CEO, KYOCERA Document Solutions America, replacing Michael Pietrunti. The name change is accompanied by a new logo and underscores Kyocera’s commitment to providing customers with complete solutions rather than just hardware. “We see the change as a tremendous opportunity, a new beginning if you will,” Bialecki said.

According to Katsumi Komaguchi, president of KYOCERA Document Solutions Inc., Kyocera achieved record sales of 242.3 billion yen (approximately $3 billion) for the fiscal year ending March 31, making 2011 the fourth consecutive year of sales growth for Kyocera and the best single year in company history, an impressive feat considering the poor economy and disasters in Japan. Komaguchi also set an ambitious sales goal of 700 billion yen (approximately $8.7 billion) for the coming year, with a solutions-centered plan for the future. Komaguchi stressed a global standardization of solution sales processes, an increase in HyPAS solution releases functionality and increased R&D engineering staff to strengthen its customized software capabilities.
