Printer Group Ricoh Announce 110 New Jobs In Ireland

Ricoh Ireland announces new jobs

The Japanese printing company Ricoh has announced the opening of a new Irish headquarters in Dublin. This comes after a €6.5 million investment from the group as it commits to the Irish market and seeks to increase its Irish business.

Ricoh Ireland will hope that the new headquarters will help it to double its revenues from the €16.4 million it earned last year to €32 million in the next three years. The business process services and production print offerings from the Japanese company have contributed to the increased revenues and expansion.

Jobs Are Welcome News For Ireland

The good news for Dublin is that the new headquarters will also welcome 110 new members over the next three years. This will leave the group by the end of 2019 with 190 people in its Irish operations. The welcome news of this addition is on top of the 30 jobs created by the company in the last 18 months.

The roles will be in the areas of technical engineering, software solutions, operations management and business development. As such, the new headquarters will focus on the core areas of business for Ricoh Ireland: product print, business process services, software solutions, managed document services, communication services and professional services.

Ricoh Ireland Looking To Grow

Gary Hopwood, general manager, Ricoh Ireland, said: “Today’s announcement underlines Ricoh Ireland’s success in embracing digital transformation and helping our customers to do the same. The new HQ truly is the feather in our cap, showcasing how we have used technology to pioneer the workforce of the future.

Our revenue stream in Ricoh Ireland continues to grow and we want to continue driving that forward. To achieve that, we needed a new office space that could facilitate a much larger workforce that will be instrumental in Ricoh Ireland’s future success. We expect to see significant returns on this investment for many years to come.”

The technology company is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, and specialises in print, visual communication solutions and document management. Originally founded in 1936, they have a long history in Ireland, having operated there since 1980.
