Konica Minolta Medical & Graphic, Inc. Announces Sale of North American CTP Business
Tokyo (September 17, 2010) – Konica Minolta Medical & Graphic, Inc. (Konica Minolta MG) today announced that it has decided to sell Computer-to-Plate (CTP) business of Konica Minolta Graphic Imaging U.S.A., Inc. (MGUS), which is engaged in North American sales activities, and American Litho Inc. (AL), a subsidiary of MGUS. Both MGUS and AL are headquartered in Michigan, U.S.A.

Konica Minolta Group has been reforming its organization by integrating digital printing business resources of Konica Minolta MG into Konica Minolta Business Technologies, Inc. in pursuit of strengthening competitiveness and expanding applications in its production printing business, a segment positioned as its priority business. In light of tenuous connections with production printing and maintenance of customer support, Konica Minolta MG has decided to spin-off and sell the North American CTP business of MGUS, mainly targeted for the newspaper market, and its subsidiary, AL, to Southern Lithoplate, Inc. of North Carolina, U.S.A.
