Expanded Large-Format Media Licensing Agreement from Hewlett-Packard to Brand Management Group
SARASOTA, Fla., November 5, 2013 – Brand Management Group (BMG), a subsidiary of S-One Holdings Corp., announces an expanded licensing agreement granted by the Hewlett-Packard Company (HP) to include all HP large format media for graphics and technical applications on HP Designjet Z-series and T-Series printers.
BMG, which specializes in worldwide media distribution, is expected to begin distributing HP-branded media through its global network of distributors and resellers on February 1, 2014. HP expanded its licensing agreement with BMG to increase focus and improve product selection, availability and delivery worldwide of HP-branded large-format media for HP Designjet printers and inks.
