Konica Minolta buys stake in MGI

Konica Minolta has bought a minority 10 percent stake in MGI Digital Graphic Technology. The deal has cost Konica Minolta €13.7m, which it says is part of a common long term vision to establish a stronger presence in the professional digital printing market.
MGI will remain an independent company but both will collaborate on future products and Konica Minolta will sell some of the MGI printers, including the Meteor digital press line.
This plays into Konica Minolta’s ‘genre-top’ strategy of concentrating on specific niches, something which MGI has proven very good at with printers developed for producing cards and calendars as well as document printers. But MGI should benefit from Konica Minolta’s larger sales and service infrastructure.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
