MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, April 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. (Konica Minolta), a leading provider of information management solutions announced today that its new headquarters will relocate to the Airport Corporate Centre of Mississauga.

Konica Minolta's new home will feature state-of-the-art technology to welcome clients, partners and guests. Along with highlighting their broad line of printing and imaging solutions, the company will also feature its new portfolio of IT services along with the latest industrial and specialty technologies, which will offer new business opportunities for the Canadian printing and packaging industry.

With ecological sustainability being a core tenant of Konica Minolta's business philosophy, it was vital that the new building contributed to the well-being of the environment. A few of the building's key features and benefits include:

  • A white reflective roof membrane, which reflects sunlight from the roof area and reduces the heat-island effect produced by conventional roofing materials.
  • Native and drought-tolerant plants that depend only on rainwater to flourish once planted. This eliminates the need for landscape irrigation, uses less fertilizer and requires fewer pesticides.
  • Electric vehicle charging stations in the parking lot to accommodate employees and visitors who drive electric or hybrid automobiles.

"We have designed the new building to reflect where Konica Minolta is headed as we continue to shape the future of our industry," says Chris Dewart, president & CEO, Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd., "We have been steadily transforming our business from a hardware vendor to a strong player in information technology, information management and now the industrial print space. Our new headquarters will be tightly aligned with the needs of key stakeholders and showcase our strategic growth initiatives."

With modern and sleek styling, Konica Minolta's new facility will reside in one of the GTA's major business and technology hubs. The new address 5875 Explorer Drive offers easy access to major highways and is only minutes away from the Toronto Pearson International Airport. Konica Minolta's head office employees will relocate to its new headquarters in April 2016.
