Océ Wide Format Printing Systems will begin offering imageProGraf iPF8000S/ iPF9000S models, others.
Canon U.S.A. has announced that the Océ North America Wide Format Printing Systems division has been named as a dealer of its imageProGraf large-format printers. As an authorized Canon dealer, Océ Wide Format Printing Systems will begin offering Canon’s lineup of imageProGraf large-format printers and supplies, including the 8-color imageProGraf iPF8000S/ iPF9000S models as well as the 5-color Technical Documents and General Use Series. Later this year, Océ Wide Format Printing Systems will add the 12-color imageProGraf iPF8300, iPF6350, and iPF6300.
“With the increasing demand for professional, high-quality print jobs across a broad variety of market segments, Canon is committed to expanding our sales channel and providing customers with greater access to the printing solutions necessary to exceed customer standards today and into the future,” says Junichi Yoshitake, senior VP and general manger, Imaging Systems Groups, Canon U.S.A. “Canon is pleased to add Océ Wide Format Printing Systems to our imageProGraf large-format printer distribution network.”
And says Patrick Chapuis, president, Wide Format Printing Systems division of Océ North America: “The imageProGraf products enable Océ to strengthen its position in the large format printing market. With this expanded offering, Océ can offer its customers high-quality printers with a low acquisition cost for decentralized printing applications in addition to our highly productive multifunction monochrome and color systems for more demanding applications.”
In late 2009, Canon and Océ reached a conditional agreement to combine their printing activities through a public cash offer by Canon for all shares of Océ. At that time, the companies reported that, following the completion of the merger, Océ will remain a separate legal entity and will become a division within Canon and that Océ will be responsible worldwide for wide format, commercial printing, and business services.
