The best printer and copier brands for your business.

With a wide variety to choose from, finding the right hardware for your business can be a challenge. Last year, over £68 million was spent on printers in the UK alone. The printing and copying market is big business and there’s lots of stiff competition. If you’re wondering which brands are reliable and trustworthy, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best options out there. 


Ricoh first started operating in 1936 and provides software and hardware to businesses of all sizes around the globe. The company is known for their quality, capacity, versatility and speed. As a result of their diverse product range they’re able to offer something for everyone. 

Sustainability is something that’s hugely important to Ricoh, making them a great choice if your business shares this passion for protecting the environment.


Just as Google has now become a verb, Xerox is widely used as a verb that means ‘to photocopy’. This says a lot about the impact the brand has had in the business world since its formation in 1906. 

Xerox has been involved in many of the world’s most important technology innovations over the last 100+ years. Founded in New York, they’re another brand that takes sustainability and environmental issues seriously. The hardware provided by Xerox enables businesses around the world to communicate and work smarter. 


Globally recognised as one of the leaders in print hardware, Lexmark has been operating for more than 30 years. The company provides printing and copying solutions for businesses in sectors spanning retail, financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, education, government, and many more. 

Similar to the other top brands on the list, sustainability and social responsibility are priorities for Lexmark. The company works tirelessly to ensure what they do is eco-friendly, creating a line of products that allows their customers to do the same. 


Believe it or not, Kyocera Corp. was originally founded in Japan as a company that specialised in fine ceramics. The business started out as Kyoto Ceramic Co and employed 28 staff members with a starting capital of 3 million yen. 

Alongside their photocopying solutions, Kyocera offers mobile devices, power tools, solar power generating systems, and much more. This diverse company always puts the customer first and that’s clear in the quality of their product line and the level of customer service they provide.
