Copier production followed in May 1986 and our product portfolio has continued to grow with the introduction of Production Printer Manufacturing, Machines Recycling, Supplies Recycling , In-house Moulded Parts, Machine Sanitisation, Hardware and Software Solutions, and Media Qualification. More recently RPL has started delivering consultancy services to Ricoh and non-Ricoh clients.
