Who We Are

Uncover what goes into the Lanier name

In 2001, we joined the innovative Ricoh family. We are proud to collaborate with Ricoh to continue to grow, create and help change the way you work.

We have gone from just creating office machines to focusing on information mobility — which is the ability to capture, manage, access and use information when and where you need it. Leveraging Ricoh’s acquisition of mindSHIFT, one of the largest IT outsourcing and cloud services providers, we can help to bring you the latest technology and tools to help keep your information flowing smoothly.

We are dedicated to helping you and your team work smarter, better and faster than ever before. With our range of products, services, solutions and expertise, we can help drive the results you want to see within your organization. It’s time to re-imagine the workplace and what you can do.
