The expansion not only marks the company’s continued growth in the imaging sector to produce high end technologies that meet customers’ evolving business needs, but also Konica Minolta’s commitment to the New Jersey economy, in bringing new jobs to the area.
The project will encompass new building construction, as well as the conversion and repurposing of existing facilities on the campus.
“Konica Minolta, has reached a special milestone, fueled by our continued growth in the imaging sector,” Rick Taylor, president and CEO of Konica Minolta, said. “We believe our investment in the Ramsey campus will not only bring new jobs to New Jersey, but it will serve a key role in supporting our business expansion to help add value to our customers.”
Specifically, the expansion is expected to make way for:
• The construction of a two-story annex to Building 101 at their Williams Drive campus that will accommodate up to an additional 400 employees.
• The conversion of an existing building for a new national customer engagement center, an East Coast technical training facility and a consolidated warehouse for all East Coast operations.
• A technical call center for field technicians to connect directly with key operational experts.
• An engineering center.
• An R&D facility.
• A new, four-tier parking garage with a capacity for 350 vehicles.
Construction and related activities will be conducted in stages, with an anticipated final completion date of summer 2019.
