At Ricoh UK Products Ltd (RPL), our Customer Experience Centre (CEC) is a unique showcase of RICOH's cutting-edge Commercial and Industrial printing technologies and commitment to customer Fulfilment through Work.

Product & Service Offering


The CEC is a remarkable collaboration space that has been designed to showcases:


High-speed inkjet

• Wide-format inkjet


This multifaceted facility also operates as a live factory, demonstrating end-to-end (E2E) workflows and manufacturing solutions. Knowledge in critical areas, including colour management, is continuously captured and fed back to our specialist teams in Japan and the USA, making a major contribution to Research & Development (R&D). This enables RICOH to continue to raise the bar in Commercial and Industrial Print.


Our diverse technologies allow for the printing of a wide variety of substrates and sizes, including the provision of compatibility testing of our partners’ finishing equipment. The CEC specialists help empower customers to explore new printing solutions and develop their businesses.


The CEC offers custom print samples upon request using customer-supplied artwork to assess suitability of the ever-expanding range of substrates. The team also supports application development, testing of software and print controllers, and pre-sales support of printers. 


Aftercare for our customers also includes providing design and application guides, integrating RICOH’s software and hardware products and systems into customer applications, and partnering with third parties for finishing solutions. Customers are welcomed to our European Training Centre which provides a full suite of learning programmes for both high-speed and wide-format inkjet, to ensure that technical teams have the opportunity to train and learn in a real-world environment.

Commitment to Sustainability


Sustainability is at the core of our values. The CEC is dedicated to fostering a sustainable future through innovation. Our exploration of sustainable technologies includes utilising cardboard instead of plastic for gift cards, promoting compostable films and plastics, and advocating for plant-based substrates.


We are actively engaged in transitioning customers from analogue to digital, accelerating the digital transformation journey and conducting supply chain assessments. By driving innovation and embracing sustainability, the CEC contributes to several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ensuring that our work has a positive and lasting environmental impact.
