Resumption of Toner Production at Tohoku Ricoh

Tohoku Ricoh Co., Ltd. resumed toner production on May 10.

Although the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami and a subsequent large aftershock on April 7 forced Tohoku Ricoh to temporarily stop operation, all production lines except for toner had resumed operation by April 15. The resumption of toner production at Tohoku Ricoh means that all lines in Ricoh’s four production facilities in the affected are now operational.

The Ricoh Group will continue to work hard toward full normalization so as to fulfill market demand.
