Kyocera celebrates award wins at BOSS industry awards and Document Manager Awards
Document imaging company scoops two separate awards on the same night
21 October 2010
KYOCERA MITA (UK) Ltd has been celebrating a bumper crop of industry awards after winning the prestigious BOSS Industry Environment Award in the Manufacturer category, and the Printer Product of the Year award from Document Manager magazine. Both of the glittering award ceremonies took place in London on Thursday 14th October, with the Document Manager Awards being held at the Tower Hotel, while the BOSS awards were held at the Lancaster Hotel.
Judges of the BOSS Industry Environment award were looking for demonstrable and credible evidence of a best practice approach to environmental responsibility. KYOCERA’s entry showed how the company has taken a design-led approach to sustainability through the development of its ECOSYS print technology. The entry highlighted the measurable benefits of waste reduction and cost savings associated with the technology, as well as KYOCERA’s wider commitment to promoting environmental business. The judges commented: “KYOCERA MITA’s submission highlighted a step change in design with a simplified, eco-friendly product that will have long term benefits even if manufactured abroad.”
The Document Manager Award recognised the FS-3140MFP as Printer Product of the Year. The FS-3140MFP is KYOCERA’s first ECOSYS workgroup A4 MFP and the award recognised its capability in bringing advanced print functionality into the document management sphere. The product acts as a digital hub for document control and dissemination in addition to its economical, low waste printing function.
Commenting on the dual award win Tracey Rawling Church, Director of Brand and Reputation at KYOCERA MITA (UK) Ltd, said: “We are honoured and delighted to have won these two prestigious awards. The fact that one award is for a specific product while the other commends KYOCERA MITA’s environmental performance as a whole is important recognition of the breadth of the organisation. We try to ingrain excellence at all levels of the company and winning awards such as these give a major boost to both our staff and business partners.”
