Océ Customers on drupa 2012 and the Canon/Océ Combination

Published on June 22, 2012

Océ customers share their views about drupa 2012, the Canon stand, and some specific events they attended as guests of Océ. They also share their views about the combination of the two companies and what it's meant for their businesses.

Narrator: We're here at Drupa with 56 of our customers.  We've not only seen the sights and sounds of Dusseldorf and Cologne, but we've seen some brand new products in our own booth like the ColorStream 3700, Image Press VP and VPS products and our VarioPrint 6320 Ultra.  Now you'll hear from a few customers about what they've experienced at this year's Drupa.

Lisa Arsenault:  It's been an amazing journey for my team and myself.  We've learned just so much about where the industry is heading, what's new, what the same and how we're going to manage our business moving forward.

Andy Mandell:  The seminars I thought were excellent.  I particularly liked the seminar on paper because with inkjet papers are changing so quickly.  I thought it was very advantageous to be at the seminar and as a matter of fact all the seminars were very good and very educational.

Eric Chandler:  We've learned a lot, especially about the new inkjet technology.  We're looking at how Oce and Express stocks can deepen our partnership and our relationship both with that hardware and technology, but also in some ways more importantly in near term with some of the workflows and as we move into an integrated conventional and digital shop to be able to take advantage of a lot of Oce's knowledge and experience in that area so that we can have a new integrated workflow that we think is going to be something that's new for the industry.

Jack Glacken:  Really a fantastic, a lot of products especially between both Canada and Oce, a lot of really great stuff that they showed here today.  I've been here with the Oce Group.  I was invited by Oce and it's just been a fabulous trip.  I've met a lot of really great new people, a lot of new friends, which is really invaluable to me.  Meeting new friends is going to help me network and help me grow my business and I just am really thrilled about the Canon, Oce merger coming together.  Between the two of them they both have a ton of products.

Andy Mandell:  Right now it's totally seamless to me.  I wouldn't know any different.  We still have relationships with the Oce people.  They seem very attentive and I see it only as a benefit with a very large company with a lot of technology behind it helping Oce develop future products.

Michael McCombs:  It's interesting to see how they've pulled together the differing companies in our technologies starting from camera all the way up to print of anything whether it's large format, digital print on 8 ½ by 11 whether it's continuous or cut sheet.  It's impressive to see a complete array of the technologies pulled together that you can do in any media and any format.

Lisa Arsenault:  I've had a great time at Drupa.  I'm taking all the technology back home that I've learned about, all the experiences from the great people that I've networked here with Oce.  It was a phenomenal opportunity that they gave to me and the people from my company and we're just so excited to move forward in an industry that everyone says is dying, but if you come to Drupa you know for sure it's not dying.  It's just changing and I'm really excited to be a part of the change and can't wait to see what the future holds for us.
