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 third 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 reprographic firm will be announced on May 19, 2010.

Creation of this award has been 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.

"Developing environmentally sound business practices continues to be a priority for many reprographers. These forward-thinking companies realize that doing more with less not only applies to their business operations but to their impact on the environment," said Patrick Chapuis, President, Wide Format Printing Systems division of Océ North America. "Oce remains committed to recognizing the reprographers that stand out from their peers in their ability to incorporate sustainability into their own operations and those of their AEC customers."

In an effort to highlight those reprographic firms 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.
