In 2006, FUSION Office Automation partnered with a brand with a long history in South Africa since Ricoh used to be Gestetner and had been in South Africa since 1923. Jason Van Der Walt and Andrew Gardner are both directors and the two founding partners of Fusion Office Automation.
FUSION has taken on the established players in the Eastern Cape Province, and have beaten them with better customer service and a quality product. They have now extended that model through the franchise opportunity.
Fusion Office Automation is a value added reseller (VAR) of Ricoh’s copiers, printers, multifunction printers (MFP), production printing presses, document management software, and document and imaging software solutions and the business has subsequently grown over 10 years to where it currently generates around R50m in annual revenues and retains over 3 500 customers.
