Ricoh Joins Fight against Alzheimer's Disease


LONDON–()–The partnership will see Ricoh and Alzheimer’s Research co-produce a
number of awareness campaigns, leveraging Ricoh’s printing technologies
and digital capabilities.

Ricoh will also take part in generating much-needed research funding
through a series of volunteering activities. The funds raised will

employee engagement and fundraising activities. The sessions will
educate staff on the symptoms, causes and impact of dementia, as well as
the current progress of research.

Alzheimer’s Research to help bring about the first life-changing
dementia treatment by 2025. We are now committing our people,
technologies and expertise to contribute to achieving this mission. We
are proud of our partnership with Alzheimer’s Research. We can’t wait to
put our collective thinking, energy and passion into practice to help
defeat dementia.”

Timothy Parry, Director of Communications and Partnerships at

Ricoh Europe on World Alzheimer’s Day. This is a hugely influential
company that leads its field in technical innovation, and through the
partnership, Ricoh Europe is demonstrating that corporations of all
types can play a meaningful role in overcoming our great medical
