Konica Minolta moving forward with golf tournament partnership and CSR initiative.
Kuala Lumpur, 28 October 2013 - Konica Minolta Business Solutions (M) Sdn Bhd (Konica Minolta) was one the key sponsors at the recently concluded Sime Darby LPGA 2013 and CIMB Classic 2013 tournaments held at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club. Notably, the only sponsor from the print industry. Konica Minolta has been proactively sponsoring international golfing tournaments because the value of golf game is in line with our philosophies which are prestige positioning, high accuracy, sharp decision to win.
As the Official Document Solutions Partner for the Sime Darby LPGA 2013 and CIMB Classic 2013 tournaments, Konica Minolta offered vital back-end support with equipment in all areas, i.e. media room and operations centre, ensuring a smooth flow for the events. During tournament weeks, Konica Minolta provided comprehensive on-site services to hospitality suites guests in its business centres. Tournament guests and organizers can access free services such as copying, printing, faxing, office equipments and internet connectivity for added convenience and comfort when they need.
On the other hand, Konica Minolta has hosted a charity drive for Montfort Boys Town, in conjunction with the Sime Darby LPGA 2013 and CIMB Classic 2013 tournaments. As a key sponsor at the golf tournaments, Konica Minolta donated the booths that they had been provided as a venue to raise funds and awareness for Montfort Boys Town. Guests at the tournaments were encouraged to make donations towards a fund, 100% of which will be used to upgrade the service printing facility that would serve as a training venue for the residential trainees of Montfort Boys Town who are underprivileged youths that have dropped out of mainstream education.
The corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative, which is part of Konica Minolta’s broader commitment to giving back to the communities in which it has a presence, seeks to contribute towards preparing the residential trainees of Montfort Boys Town for gainful employment, allowing them to contribute to the development of our nation.
Mr. Tony Tang, General Manager of Konica Minolta Business Solutions (M) Sdn Bhd said, “Konica Minolta believes that we have a part to play in contributing to the betterment of the communities in which we have a presence. Given our expertise in print services and solutions, we are in a unique position to be able to contribute to the training and development of the Montfort Boys Town’s residential trainees by equipping them with soft-technical skills and knowledge in printing and colour management that will help them be contributing members of society, an option we are actively exploring with Montfort Boys Town”.
Konica Minolta is exploring a long term partnership with Montfort Boys Town where they can provide the trainees with knowledge and skills used in the printing industry, teaching them about such topics as colour management and machine repair. It is hoped that through sharing their expertise and knowledge of the printing industry, the trainees will be better prepared for gainful employment moving forward, allowing them to play a part in our nation’s development.
Mr Arulanandam a/l Sinnasamy, Chief Administration Officer of Montfort Boys Town said, “We are excited to be working with Konica Minolta and look forward to their active participation and involvement in the training and development of our trainees. We would like to thank Konica Minolta for the initiative and the opportunity. The funds raised will go towards the set up of a full service printing facility for the trainees, which will go a long way towards supporting their development as contributing members of society. The support of companies like Konica Minolta truly makes a difference in the lives of our trainees and we thank them for their support.”
