BR Corporation Expands Fulfillment Services to European Union
Press release from the issuing company
SAN JOSE, Calif.--Oct. 19, 2001--BR Corporation (BR), the leading producer of on demand print, media, and fulfillment solutions in Silicon Valley, today announced that it entered into a contract with Kall Kwik Cambridge the premier print on demand chain in the European Union, to use the UK based chain as BR's primary UK production facility. Terms of the relationship were not disclosed.
BR has created a 'distribute, print, and fulfill' model for US based corporations who have requirements to ship mission critical documents and products to UK and the EU. By selecting BR for a single source for domestic and UK production, customers can leverage the expertise of BR domestically, and not have to search for, qualify, and manage a UK vendor. In turn corporations can streamline their operational and shipping costs, while reducing overall turn time of product.
Hugh Loveless, VP of Sales at BR states, "Our alliance with Kall Kwik allows BR the ability to best meet our customers' global requirements. Kall Kwik's expertise in print on demand creates the perfect symmetry with services offered at BR and so highly valued by our customers.'' In addition to providing significant cost savings to corporations, BR also enables companies to localize their EU content through the contract with Kall Kwik.
BR already has several leading Silicon Valley companies in queue to take advantage of this new service offering. BR will be able to optimize the turn time and shipping costs for overseas shipments for its customers. This includes, digital printing (color and black and white), CD duplication, finishing solutions, inventory management, and on demand fulfillment.
"We are delighted to be entering into this exciting new relationship with BR. There is considerable synergy between our businesses, and we look forward to providing BR's US-based customers with the same high levels of service for which we are already so well known in the UK,'' says Kall Kwik Cambridge's Managing Director, John Postlethwaite.
