Earlier this year, Konica Minolta was awarded first place in the 2011 Brand Keys Customer Loyalty Engagement Index in the “MFP Office Copier” category for the fourth consecutive year.

“It’s a good sign of customer loyalty when you end up in the Top 100. It’s a better sign when you are the only one in your category to make the list. And it’s the best sign when you move up every year. Our congratulations to Konica Minolta for their ability to engage customers and build loyalty. That’s what the future is all about.” Robert Passikoff, Founder and President, Brand Keys.
