Nieuwegein, June 2016 – Ricoh Document Center Utrecht (RDC Utrecht) together with Greenfield has taken over industry peer Document Center Midden-Nederland (RDC Midden-Nederland). The merger brings together two successful suppliers of Ricoh Managed Print Services and Solutions. The new combination is market leader in the segment.
The expansion of RDC Utrecht brought about by this acquisition confirms the continuity of its stable partnership with Ricoh. The resulting economies of scale have enabled the two RDCs to jointly invest in specialist knowledge and skills. Both companies share the same core values and vision regarding customer orientation, service and building long-term relationships with customers.
Rob Baggerman (Director of RDC Utrecht): "Acquisition of RDC Midden-Nederland is an important step towards achieving RDC Utrecht’s growth objectives as a supplier of print infrastructure and document solutions. The merger has major benefits for the customers and staff of both companies and strengthens our leading position in Managed Print Services."
Emiel Birza (Greenfield Capital Partners): “This merger fleshes out the multi-mono-brand strategy of the parent company. It is a strategy aimed at rapid growth, through further acquisitions and through autonomous growth, by investing in specialization and expanding the sales force.”
