Konni Hoferichter has retired as MD of LaserCom, after 12 years at the helm and 40 years in the broader group.

He started at the then Rank Xerox, which went through a number of iterations: Xerox South Africa, XeraTech and today Bytes Document Solutions, which owns LaserCom and is in turn owned by JSE-listed Altron.

“I leave with a very heavy heart,” says Hoferichter, “exactly 12 years after having taking over at the then Laser Facilities. Along the way we made some acquisitions, moved premises several times, partnered with some great best-of-breed companies to deliver a unique service offering to our customers, and we are now renewing ourselves to tackle the market with a new sense of purpose and vigour. It's a good time to hand over the reins to a new leader, who will be announced shortly.”

Under Hoferichter, LaserCom became one of the market leaders in the various areas of mail fulfilment, investing tens of millions of rand in state-of-the-art equipment. The company prints and mails 360 million individual pages a year. Most recently, LaserCom also launched its transpromo offering.


As a leader in personalised business communication solutions, LaserCom generates more than 30 million pages a month on behalf of corporate South Africa. LaserCom delivers mailing services, data printing, print-on-demand, electronic document delivery and direct marketing services. LaserCom is a company in Bytes Document Solutions, wholly owned by JSE-listed Altron.
