HP is teaming up with Japanese manufacturer Konica to strengthen and expand its imaging and printing offering to the business market, the vendor announced. Details of the deal are still to be announced, although HP said products will ship later this year. HP will collaborate with Konica to leverage its expertise in copier engines, broadening HP’s portfolio of products for commercial customers, it said in a statement. While no details have been released, executives have said it will lead to the creation of a single system product. “By combining Konica’s robust copier engine expertise with HP’s heritage of networking and manageability, we will bring to the market one sophisticated system that is completely integrated with current HP hardcopy office products,” said Amr Hassan, general manager of HP IPG Middle East. “This agreement with Konica augments and complements HP’s existing partnerships and will enable us to more rapidly expand our imaging and printing offerings.” Details of the product offerings from this relationship and market strategy will be announced in the coming months, with products shipping later this year.
