Seasoned Printer Executive Joins Kyocera Mita to Lead Aggressive Market Share Growth for ECOSYS Product Line

Fairfield, New Jersey - April 1, 2003 - Kyocera Mita, one of the world's leading document imaging companies, today announced that Joseph L. O'Malley has been named vice president, printer division, reporting to the new president of Kyocera Mita America, Tony Pater.

Mr. O'Malley will drive Kyocera Mita's aggressive growth strategy for the ECOSYS printer product line, building on the products' very low total cost of ownership in the industry and their environmental friendliness. ECOSYS printers possess long-life properties that significantly lessen their environmental burden by reducing the number of parts disposed. Optical parts, the imaging section, paper and fixing-related materials are all designed for reuse. Unnecessary waste of cartridges is eliminated in ECOSYS products, since toner is added to the existing unit without disposal of the drum.

"Joe has more than 20 years experience in management and sales. His broad knowledge of the printer market, key reseller channels and retail will help lead the division to continued rapid growth and success," said Tony Pater, president, Kyocera Mita America. "Joe will break new ground and bring a winning tradition to a printer line that is second to none. I wish Joe all the luck and look forward to solid, incremental growth for years to come."
