Agreement includes distribution of Oce-branded ColorSpan printers outside of NA.
Oce has entered into a strategic alliance with MacDermid ColorSpan to market ColorSpan products. As part of this agreement, Oce will sell specific ColorSpan wide-format inkjet printers outside of North America; these printers will carry the Oce brand and will be fully supported by Oce's service and support organization.
Specifically, Oce reports, it will re-badge ColorSpan's 72UVR as the Oce 7070, and re-badge the ColorSpan 72UVX as the Oce 7075. The printers will be sold in all major countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. ColorSpan will continue to sell the 72UVR and the 72UVX in these markets as well.
"Oce's commitment is to bring a full range of solutions to the large-format digital printing marketplace with Oce-developed technology as well as with carefully selected OEM partners," says Wilbert Verheyen, president of Oce Display Graphics Systems. "Part of that commitment is to source best-in-class OEM products that are a good fit, and MacDermid ColorSpan offers products that we are pleased to include in our portfolio. Our desire is to build strong working relationships with market-leading companies, in order to offer value-added solutions that meet market needs."
"We are pleased to enter into this strategic alliance with Oce," says Robert J. Wenzel, president of MacDermid ColorSpan. "We feel this relationship will dramatically increase the number of end users that will be able to enjoy the productivity benefits our products provide. Oce's reputation for providing quality products backed by great service and support is consistent with our internal standards."
