Kuala Lumpur, 16 April 2014 - Ricoh (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., event sponsor of the premium tennis BMW Malaysian Open 2014, continues to position themselves as the leader in office and business solutions.

Bhd. “The dynamic and competitive sport reflects the environment in which we often deal with. Furthermore, the need to be precise and accurate is crucial to ace your game – a split second decision of inaccuracy can be costly on court and in business.”

At the BMW Malaysian Open 2014, the Ricoh booth had visitors abuzz with excitement with various activities including a teaser to Ricoh (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.'s upcoming products such as the IWB were on display at the booth. Activities such as the Ricoh KAMI Racer Challenge Game saw participants unleash their imagination by designing a character of their own on special KAMI paper, which was then scanned through a Ricoh Multi-Function Copier that breathed life into the characters, allowing it to compete in a rally race projected on a screen. Visitors also stood a chance to win a Ricoh Pentax Camera upon participating in the Ricoh Rally Challenge.
