Ricoh has collected the best mega stand honour at the 2012 Africa Print show.

The ink cartridges supplier has hailed the event as a success, with Graphic Repo reporting that the company also signed a deal for a wide-format printer.

However, Ricoh gained fewer leads from the 5,800 visitors at the event this year, picking up 277 compared to last year's total of 400.

Dierdre Fernandes, events, PR, CSR and sponsorship co-ordinator at Ricoh SA, said: "Africa Print is seldom a platform for signing deals but is a valuable exercise in gaining face time with potential and existing customers where we can showcase the full depth of our solutions and gain a more intimate understanding of their requirements."

Ricoh's success at Africa Print follows its announcement of several new multifunction products. reported that the company has launched the Ricoh MP 6002/ MP 7502/ MP 9002 series of products, offering printing, scanning, copying and distribution capabilities.
