Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announced that Canon was named the U.S. and worldwide continuous feed market share leader by InfoTrends, a top market research and strategic consulting firm for the digital imaging and document solutions industry. The report, published in March 2015, ranks Canon number one in both national and worldwide continuous feed inkjet market share figures.
Canon Solutions America has been instrumental in Canon’s resurgence as the U.S. continuous feed leader, operating as the sales channel for such innovative products as the Océ ImageStream™ 3500, the Océ ColorStream® Twin Series inkjet printer, both producing outstanding image quality required for high-end applications.
“It’s no secret that production inkjet technology has taken the industry by storm over the last two years,” said Francis A. McMahon, vice president, Marketing, Production Print Solutions division of Canon Solutions America. “By listening to our customers and developing with the market as it grew, we were able to meet the evolving needs of the industry and provide cutting-edge technologies that will help businesses of all sizes experience enhanced productivity and increased automation.”
Viewed as the future of the industry, inkjet technology is more prevalent than ever, and is set to expand its reach with the introduction of new products and innovations. As the Company’s sole provider of continuous feed products, Canon Solutions America is at the forefront of the movement with steadfast commitment to customer outreach programs, marketing strategy enhancements, and providing extensive industry resources, like the Designer’s Guide to Inkjet.
“Canon and Canon Solutions America have leveraged the potential of inkjet and understand where it’s going not only in continuous feed, but also in cutsheet,” said Jim Hamilton, group director at InfoTrends. “Canon Solutions America’s innovation helps its customers as they implement white-paper-in/full-color-out workflows, just-in-time manufacturing, and fully customized document creation in ways that were never fully feasible before.”
Additionally, Canon Solutions America has gained market share due in part to its increased offerings to commercial printing accounts. The company is committed to building on this success with the launch of the Océ ImageStream 3500 and the Océ ColorStream Twin Series inkjet printer and their unique applications for commercial printers. Canon Solutions America is confident that with future offerings such as the innovative Océ VarioPrint i300 cutsheet inkjet press, Canon’s lead in the inkjet market will continue to strengthen.
“Canon Solutions America has helped us expand our capabilities to a wide range of markets, including commercial print,” said Chris Illman, president, OneTouchPoint. “Our business continues to achieve success through the innovative technologies and devices that Canon Solutions America provides.”
