Canon Solutions America Expands its Relationship with Legrand North America Incorporating Sustainability Efforts

Friday, June 08, 2018

Press release from the issuing company

Melville, N.Y. – Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announced an expansion to its valued collaboration with Legrand, North and Central America, a national leader in electrical and data network solutions designed to improve the delivery and control of power, light and data. The extension of the business relationship is centered on Canon Solutions America's support of the near 15 new companies Legrand, North and Central America recently acquired – the new U.S. Legrand accounts will each have access to Canon's industry-leading office equipment and software tools.

True to Legrand and Canon Solutions America's mission to build sustainability into its business initiatives, the two entities recently collaborated to plant over 120 trees as part of the Arbor Day Foundation's "Replanting our Forests Program," which Canon supports by contributing to the distribution and planting of one tree for every eligible image RUNNER ADVANCE multifunction system sold.*

"Ensuring our Purchasing Partnerships help minimize our environmental impact is important to us at Legrand," said Susan Rochford, VP, Energy Efficiency, Sustainability, and Public Policy. "We are excited to be announcing this unique initiative as part of our commitment to building sustainability into everything we do, including our ongoing relationship with Canon Solutions America."

Working together on numerous projects, Canon Solutions America and Legrand, North and Central America enjoy a longstanding relationship with each other that's grown significantly over the last five years. As a testament to their forward-thinking approach, the two companies collaborated on an electronic fax distribution solution that routes incoming faxes throughout an organization. The results continue to showcase the joint vision each company values as it pertains to supporting associates, customers, and workflow efficiency goals.

"A few years ago we were selected as the strategic vendor to implement a printer reduction strategy throughout Legrand as part of their sustainability goals," said Peter Kowalczuk, president, Canon Solutions America. "We are committed to helping our customers reach new heights in their sustainability efforts, which in turn can help create a ripple effect on a local, national and international scale. We are excited to build on this great relationship with Legrand North and Central America's most recent company acquisitions and demonstrate to our customers that we are here to help them in their mission to become economically, socially and environmentally sustainable."

Its belief is that all people, regardless of race, religion or culture, can harmoniously live and work together towards the common good. As a global company, Canon understands that our future depends on the future of the earth we all share. As such, Canon Solutions America's goal is to conduct business in harmony with the environment, and it is committed to a sustainable future both through its guiding philosophy and its actions.
