Printers Not Made In China

Up until 2020 all printer companies were making printers in China. Printers have a lot of parts and many get assembled by humans in a factory as opposed to automation. Recently companies have started diversfying to countries like Vietnam, Malasyia and Thailand, but only one has made a full committment not to manufacture printers in China.



Ricoh mostly makes higher end printers. They have been in the prining, copying, and camera industry for a long time. In 2019 they announced that all printers sold in the US will be made in their Thailand factory in order to completely remove the risk of politics affecting their operations.
