The Ricoh Group initiated a structure of five business units and a Group headquarters. We have shifted to a setup where each business unit integrates everything from development through production and sales and runs autonomously.
RICOH Digital Services provides sales and support in around 200 countries and regions around the world through regional headquarters in Japan, the Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. We are expanding digital services, as a service integrator, by drawing on our global customer touchpoints and strengths in integrating an array of applications, services, and edge devices. We deliver customer value in four key areas. These are IT infrastructure, digitizing workflows, digitalizing frontlines, and new workstyles. We are focusing on strengthening RICOH Smart Integration (RSI), a cloudbased co-creation platform that combines devices and applications to support these areas.
Ricoh Digital Products remains a manufacturing business unit. A key mission is to keep creating and supplying compelling edge devices that enable Ricoh to deliver advanced digital services to customers. We reinforced our manufacturing structure in various ways in fiscal 2021. For example, we established an integrated structure from development through manufacturing and sales to develop and produce our offerings faster and more efficiently. We will continue pursuing operational excellence while striving to expand our business further and capitalize on incremental growth opportunities.
We aim to help commercial, industrial, and enterprise printing customers and brand owners to improve on-site digital transformation and work practice approaches and expand their businesses. We also seek to maximize customer value and resolve social issues. Specifically, through promoting digital printing, we will offer customers high-value printed materials on-demand that meet their needs, thereby helping them to expand their businesses and reducing their carbon footprint by curtailing mass printing and disposal.

The Optical business leverages Ricoh's camera optics technology.
RICOH Futures is striving to create future value through incubation initiatives that help resolve social issues. We aim to create a business structure whose growth leads to a better world.
