Oce calls for "Green Reprographer of the Year"

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Trumbull, CT– Océ, a global leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, today announced its Wide Format Printing Systems division will begin accepting applications for its second annual "Green Reprographer of the Year" award.  Applicants will be asked to submit, in writing, their achievements in the area of green business practices and explain how these efforts have assisted their customers to meet their own sustainability goals. The winning reprographer will be announced on April 30, 2009.

Creation of this award was driven by Océ's longstanding commitment to help reprographers reach their sustainability goals, and those of their customers, through large format printing solutions that are environmentally conscious without sacrificing print quality.

"Despite the various challenges facing reprographers today, many remain committed to developing their own environmentally sound business practices and to assisting their AEC and other clients meet their sustainability goals," said Patrick Chapuis, President, Wide Format Printing Systems division of Océ North America. "After the excellent response we received last year, we want to continue our recognition of those companies that are making strides in incorporating sustainability throughout their business operations."

In an effort to highlight those reprographers that have embraced a forward-looking approach to incorporating sustainability into their business model, all applicants will be considered by Océ for future publicity opportunities regarding their sustainability efforts, including interviews and contributed articles with leading reprographic industry publications.
