“Exclusive distributor of Ricoh Multifunction Devices (MFD), Printers, Production Printers including Direct To Garment (DTG), Visual Communications including Video Surveillance Solutions (VSS), Workspace Solutions, Software Solutions, IT Services including complete After-Sales Support”.
Ricoh (Philippines), Inc. was formerly named Inchcape NRG (Phils.) Inc. (INRGP). The company was established and registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 6, 1997. INRGP was a 50-50% joint venture of Inchcape NRG, Ltd., a British owned company and Ricoh Japan, a 100% Japanese company. The Company was established to become the exclusive distributor of Ricoh copiers, fax and other document solutions in the Philippines.
The first office established was located at 7904 Lawaan Street, San Antonio Village, Makati City. This was subsequently expanded in July 1997 to G/F Antel 1000, 139 Valero St., Salcedo Village, Makati City for its executive and sales office leaving Lawaan offices to house its service, distribution and warehouse offices.
After almost three (3) years of operations in the Philippines, INRGP slowly but surely carved a niche in the copier industry besting other leading competitors. Thus, in September 1999, Ricoh Company Ltd. Japan decided to buy out its partner to have more focus in selling exclusive Ricoh products thus making the company a sales subsidiary in the Philippines. The company was renamed Ricoh (Philippines), Inc. (RPH) in same month and became a 100% Japanese owned company. In January 2000, the company, to better streamline its operations, moved all its offices to B5 Karivin Plaza, 2316 Pasong Tamo Makati City. After seven (7) years of its operation in the said location, the Management has grabbed the opportunity of locating the office within the heart of Makati Central Business District and has decided to transfer and house its operation at Ground Floor 349 Oppen Building, Sen. Gil J. Puyat Avenue, Makati City, Philippines, where it is now presently located.
With the continuous effort towards business expansion, the company ventures on leasing its warehouse and workshop area at #153 San Francisco St. Mandaluyong City, Metro Manila. The rented space is for the storage facility and repair of office equipment. All machines, spareparts and consumables imported overseas are safekept in this facility.
Ricoh (Philippines), Inc. continues to expand business offices and depot nationwide. Last April 2015, Ricoh housed its new branch in Metro Cebu and a service depot was situated in Turbina, Laguna to easily cater the service needs of our growing clients in the Visayas and South areas respectively.
Ricoh (Philippines), Inc. was formally established and registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 22, 1999. This was made to meet new challenges in the market and to provide focused growth in the Philippines. It is now a sales subsidiary of the leading global manufacturer of office automation equipment, Ricoh Company Ltd. The company’s present lineup of products includes digital and analog copiers, fax machines, and related supplies and services. The Company is rapidly building a solid presence nationwide as a provider of comprehensive document solutions that help customers streamline their businesses and cut operating costs.
