In a major shakeup of its production print business, Canon Australia will move all of its production printing operation to Océ Australia – a separate Canon Group entity.

'Canon and Océ aim to continue their strong presence in the printing industry': Yusuke Mizoguchi, MD, Canon Oceania

Yusuke Mizoguchi, MD, Canon Oceania said the change – effective 1 January 2018 – is part of the Canon Group’s growth strategy for professional print and will enable greater focus on ‘this specialised market segment.’

“Canon recognises the importance of this category and the need to provide access to expertise and service excellence to customers whose businesses depend on the quality of Océ products,” said Mizoguchi.

“Canon and Océ aim to continue their strong presence in the printing industry, building on an enhanced scale and a combined history of innovation and excellent customer service.”

Anton Schaaf, CEO and President Océ globally, said the change in its go-to market approach for production printing products is all about enhancing customer service.

“Océ is renowned for its quality and engineering excellence. Australia and the wider Oceania region is a unique and strategically important market for us. This allows us to be more connected to our customers and provide more direct support when they need it most.”

In March, Canon announced its first new imagePRESS series in nine years and released the Océ Colorado 1640, the world’s first 64” roll-to-roll printer built on the company’s new UVgel technology.
