The two companies have signed off on an agreement that will see them working together to deliver plan-printing solutions to both the CAD and print-for-pay market segments, including Xerox Business Centres and Xerox Shops.

Under the agreement, Fuji Xerox will purchase direct from Epson large format printers which include Epson’s Stylus Pro 4450, Stylus Pro 4880, Stylus Pro 7450, Stylus Pro 7880, Stylus Pro 9450, Stylus Pro 9880, the Stylus Pro 11880 and Epson’s UltraChrome pigment-based inks and compatible Epson media.

Craig Heckenberg (pictured), Epson’s business solutions manager, said that the partnership was a result of a global agreement between Epson and Xerox that allows Xerox to provide its customers with the opportunity to purchase Epson’s colour imaging technologies.

"This partnership builds on Epson’s global relationship with Xerox and will provide advanced large format colour printing solutions for architects, engineers and print service bureaux," Heckenberg said.

According to Allan Livings, Fuji Xerox business development manager for wide format systems in Australia, the deal will offer further benefits for customers.

"The introduction of the Epson range into our non-metro TXS dealer network will add another dimension to the very successful B&W wide format range of products The Xerox Shop dealers have to offer from the Fuji Xerox range," he said.
"In the past five years Fuji Xerox wide format business has grown ten-fold because of state of the art and leading edge B&W technologies offered to the market, and the addition of the Epson range will further strengthen The Xerox Shops’ offering to their wide format customers."
