Mike Hughes, Managing Director at Latcham, said: “Ricoh has been a trusted partner to Latcham for almost a decade. They have always supported the business strategically as well as operationally and investing in Ricoh’s printing technology, particularly the new RICOH 9500, means we will benefit from a wide range of positive impact across our operations, driving innovation and Latcham’s competitiveness in the market.

Tim Carter, Commercial Print Director at Ricoh Graphic Communications, said: “We’ve built a strong relationship with Latcham over the past few years and worked tirelessly to thoroughly understand their business requirements. Mike Hughes, Latcham’s MD and owner, was part of the customer Q&A panel during our Print Evolution Live event in October, sharing his views on how to develop a business proposition and invest in digital print tech that enables growth. I am delighted that Latcham is one of the first companies to receive our new Pro 9500 following the product demonstration on the day.” Tim added: “During our customer panel, Mike placed great emphasis on the role of customer centricity as his recipe for success. We’re proud to be Latcham’s trusted partner with the shared mindset of customer success and business growth.”
