Ricoh named among world's 50 most innovative companies

Ricoh made the list of top 50 most innovative companies with 1,145 patent grants in 2017.​

According to an article that appeared on USAToday.com1, Ricoh was named among the top 50 most innovative companies. The list, published January 2018, was compiled by 24/7 Wall Street by tallying patent grants awarded to a company and its subsidiaries to identify the world’s 50 most innovative companies. Ricoh made the list with 1,145 patent grants in 2017.

According to the article, of the thousands of American and international companies that were granted patents last year, just a few major corporations accounted for a massive share of global innovation. And of those patents, a handful of industries — including computing and telecommunications — accounted for the bulk of innovations last year.

Ricoh continually finds new ways to empower digital workplaces using innovative technologies and services enabling individuals to work smarter. For more than 80 years, Ricoh has been driving innovation and is a leading provider of document management solutions, IT services, commercial and industrial printing, digital cameras, and industrial systems.
