About

Toshiba has been on the upswing in the office copier business, thanks to a steadily improving product line.

Although it may be among the smaller forces in copiers, the company as a whole is much larger than most of its competitors.

Toshiba handouts include Fortune corporate rankings indicating that its global revenues across all product lines are about the same as those of Canon, Ricoh and Xerox combined.

Product line: In recent years, Toshiba has been raising its copier profile both by re-energizing its U.S. marketing and by becoming more innovative with its products. Its line of e-STUDIO models is quite strong, and the company is starting to make an impact on the market.

Toshiba distribution: Toshiba brand sales are split nearly 50-50 between dealers and the company’s Toshiba Business Solutions division. In all, Toshiba has about 250 copier dealers, of which about 30% have Toshiba as its exclusive A3 MFP OEM partner.
