Upper Canada College Selects Kyocera Mita as Document
Solutions Provider; Kyocera Mita Chosen Based on
Ecological Standards and Long-Term Cost Savings

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario--(CCNMatthews - Feb 28, 2005) -

Kyocera Mita Canada, a leading document imaging company, today announced
that Upper Canada College (UCC) has selected Kyocera printing solutions
to support the needs of faculty, staff and the student body.
LaserNetworks will provide UCC Kyocera ECOSYS printers to complement its
'Green School' initiative, which promotes environmental awareness and
responsibility at the school.

"Environmental consciousness is a key principle of our institution and
Kyocera's printers fall completely in line with that way of thinking,"
said Kelly Ambrose, UCC's Director of IT. "The ecological benefits and
long-term cost savings that Kyocera's ECOSYS products provide are a
perfect solution to help us meet our vision."

The UCC installed a variety of Kyocera ECOSYS printers, including the
FS-1020D (21 pages per minute), the FS-3820N (29 pages per minute) and
the FS-9520DN (51 pages per minute). Kyocera's patented ECOSYS
technology provides customers with a printing solution that incorporates
long-life consumables with the lowest comparable cost per print by
allowing toner to be replenished in a device without disposal of the
print drum. The benefits of Kyocera's cartridge-free ECOSYS technology
are twofold. Ecologically, ECOSYS helps to eliminate the environmental
burden of used print cartridges that are now disposed of each year.
Economically, by eliminating the recurring costs associated with
replacement print cartridges, ECOSYS printers provide incremental
savings allowing customers to recoup the printer's purchase price in a
year or less, particularly in network printing environments.

"We are thrilled that UCC has chosen us to meet their printing needs and
see this as a great endorsement of our ECOSYS technology," said Marco
Nalli, Marketing Manager for Kyocera Mita Canada. "We're confident that
the long-term benefits that they will realize by using these products
will help them fulfill their ecological and financial ambitions."

UCC began its 'Green School' initiative in 2002 in order to better
address global environmental challenges as an organization, and through
its community, including students, parents, graduates, friends and
partners. Kyocera's ECOSYS technology was a driving factor behind UCC's
decision. In addition, UCC selected Kyocera based on the products double
sided printing ability, which reduces paper use and energy saving

The FS-1020D, FS-3820N and the FS-9520DN are all available through
authorized Kyocera dealers located throughout Canada.
