Pacific Office Automation (POA), the largest independent office equipment dealer in the U.S., announced a 15 percent increase in revenue for Konica Minolta products in 2022. POA has been Konica Minolta’s largest North American dealer since 2005. The company first partnered with Konica Minolta Business Solutions, a Japanese company in 49 countries, in 1992.

“I am thrilled at the continued growth we see with Pacific Office Automation. Double digit organic growth from such a large dealer is truly an outstanding accomplishment and we are so appreciative of the focus and energy of the entire POA team,” said Laura Blackmer, president of dealer sales at Konica Minolta.

Konica Minolta’s production print market grew by 20 percent between 2021 and 2022 while the solutions market grew by 42 percent with their partnership with Mobotix, a global cybersecurity leader and security camera manufacturer. Even without Mobotix, their year-over-year growth for the solutions market reached 19 percent.

“Konica Minolta has always been a really strong partner for us, and we’re thrilled to see our sales goals come to fruition. We believe in the quality of their products, and we both have great ambition. Our growth year over year reflects that. We are poised to pursue our successful partnership for years to come,” said Doug Pitassi, Pacific Office Automation’s CEO and president.
