You Are Here: About Kyocera
Kyocera Document Solutions is improving the document management processes of customers and making people's jobs easier through a high-performance, end-to-end digital imaging product line that delivers one of the industry's lowest total costs of ownership (TCO).
The company manufactures and markets network-ready digital copiers/printers, laser printers, color copiers/printers, digital laser facsimiles, multi-functional, wide format imaging products and a portfolio of Kyocera Document Solutions-developed and third-party software and network solutions. Kyocera Document Solutions is a group company of Kyocera Corporation, the world's leading developer and manufacturer of advanced ceramics and associated products, including telecommunications equipment, semiconductor packages and electronic components. Kyocera Corporation's consolidated net revenues totaled $9.0 billion during the year ended March 31, 2003. Kyocera employs more than 40,000 people worldwide.
Kyocera Document Solutions's operations in the Americas are headquartered in Fairfield, New Jersey. The company produces toner, developers and cartridges at a state-of-the art manufacturing facility in Greenville, South Carolina, and operates a training and parts distribution center in Dallas as the hub for its technical and sales training operations.
Kyocera's global leadership in printer technology was combined with Mita's strength in copiers and multi-functional products when the two companies merged in 2000. Kyocera Document Solutions has leveraged this combined strength to manufacture a complete line of award-winning digital imaging products and their advanced ceramic components, including a long-life drum unit and engine that are common on all Kyocera Document Solutions-manufactured products. Kyocera Document Solutions introduced the world's first single-layer photo-electrostatic OPC drum in 1998, and continues to excel in the development and manufacture of long-life drums, a component it supplies to many printer and copier manufacturers around the world.
All Kyocera Document Solutions printers and multi-functional products utilize the common KX driver, which provides a standard look and feel for end users and also enables the easy set-up and management of all products running on the network.
Kyocera Document Solutions innovates using technology to reduce TCO, streamline advanced document imaging tasks and protect the environment. Its environmental awareness is evidenced through the ECOSYS brand of printers. Unnecessary waste of cartridges is eliminated in ECOSYS products, since toner is added to the existing unit without disposal of the drum, a feature that not only helps protect the environment but contributes to a low TCO.
Kyocera Document Solutions is the first player in the industry to offer complete embedded wireless connectivity for all Kyocera Document Solutions-developed printers and MFPs. The company's wireless offerings enable mobile printing and multi-office printing flexibility and give end users true wireless document processing at the same functionality as a hard-wired network.
The award-winning, high-performance Kyocera Document Solutions product line is offered through a nationwide network of over 400 dealers, who add value to customers through quality integration, customization and 24/7 service and support for the products. Kyocera Document Solutions supports its network of dealers with a strong National and Government Accounts Division that assists with large, multi-regional opportunities and provides a focused strategy for Fortune 1000 accounts and the government.
