Fujifilm Business Innovationhas completed its acquisition of CSG

Fujifilm Business Innovation has completed its acquisition of CSG, the IT services provider headquartered in Melbourne.

CSG, which in New Zealand, supplies Konica Minolta and other digital printing solutions, has become a wholly owned subsidiary of Fujifilm Business Innovation. Through the acquisition, Fujifilm Business Innovation aims to further expand business operations in relation to small and medium-sized businesses in Australia and New Zealand, by harnessing the synergies between the two businesses in relation to the supply of office printing equipment and IT services.

Peter Thomas, managing director of Fujifilm Business Innovation, says, “In New Zealand, the acquisition is a core part of our strategy to get ahead of a maturing print services business, expand and diversify our footprint across the industry, and create a company to better serve our customers today and into the future.

“Through CSG’s IT services company, CodeBlue, Fujifilm Business Innovation will now be able to provide an advanced value proposition for cost-effective and sustainable technology solutions.

“Our focus is now on integrating the companies and bringing our teams and product offerings together to deliver to the evolving needs of our customers across the country.”

Based in Australia and New Zealand, CSG provides printing equipment and IT services for the offices of nearly 10,000 client companies, mainly small to medium sized businesses. While CSG has a strong foothold with these customers, a majority of Fujifilm Business Innovation’s business comes from large enterprise customers, so Fujifilm Business Innovation sees the two companies’ businesses are largely complementary. With around 90 percent of the companies in Australia and New Zealand small to medium sized businesses, Fujifilm Business Innovation, by acquiring CSG, seeks to strengthen its structure to serve a broader range of customers with optimal IT services and products.

CSG will continue operating with the same company name following the acquisition. Fujifilm Business Innovation has appointed Ken Sugiyama, the corporate vice president responsible for Australia New Zealand regional operations as CSG’s new managing director. He says, “CSG has a strong 30-year history of working closely with local SMB customers in providing attentive sales and support in Australia and New Zealand.

“CSG will hereon be able to provide those customers with innovative products and IT services owned by Fujifilm Business Innovation such as optimising the entire business operation processes. We look forward to the opportunity to help our customers resolve their business challenges and their businesses grow further.”
