Ricoh Asia Pacific, on 25 March, announced a strategic partnership with Minosha India, formerly Ricoh India, to expand its office equipment and digital services business lines in India.

This new alliance is designed to help customers grow their business by leveraging the company’s expertise in bringing people, processes, and technology together. Its end-to-end range of Office Equipment and Digital Services offerings helps customers optimize their data workflows and transform their business information into actionable insights, freeing their people to focus on creating true value for their business.

Ricoh and Minosha will contribute to India’s digital growth

“We are very delighted to be onboarded as a Ricoh partner. The company is known for its innovative products and solutions, and this collaboration will leverage Minosha’s service capabilities and strong pan-India network to deliver best-in-class solutions. Both alliance partners will contribute to India’s digital growth story”, said Atul Thakker, managing director, Minosha India.

“India is one of the key markets in the region, and Ricoh must have partners that can reach out to customers in the country. Our partnership with Minosha will help customers discover and navigate digital transformation, allowing them to create greater value for their business,” said Tomo Ota, director of the company. 

Minosha India was established in 1995, having a pan-India network of seven offices and over 300 business partners. Ricoh India was listed on Indian stock exchanges. However, its Japanese parent firm the company stopped supporting the Indian arm after some accounting anomalies were found. 

The company later filed for insolvency, and the entity was taken over by investors Kalparaj Dharamshi and Rekha Jhunjhunwala in 2019. It was renamed Minosha under the new management.


The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
