Konni Hoferichter appointed MD of LaserCom
Konni Hoferichter has been appointed as MD of LaserCom, a company in the Bytes Document Solutions group. Formerly divisional manager, Hoferichter is promoted to MD as part of Bytes Document Solutions' overall restructuring.
The group has undergone a strategic makeover, creating three self-standing entities in the Xerox business, NOR Paper and LaserCom, South Africa's leading provider of mail bureau and electronic print services. This has been done so as to ensure the group retains its position of market leadership and empowers group companies to sustain and boost growth.
Hoferichter has spent 38 years in the document production/management business. He has managed LaserCom, formerly Laser Facilities, for the last nine years. In this time the company has grown by over 600% and most recently it entered the transpromo market, where it is uniquely positioned to deliver the appropriate services. The company prints more than 30 million pages a month for its client base.
"My appointment is in line with a move to greater autonomy for LaserCom," says Hoferichter. "In the last decade LaserCom has grown to the point that it needs to be managed as a separate entity, with all that entails. We fully expect this step to help sustain our growth."
