NEW YORK--Sept. 25, 2001--Shopping for office supplies such as toner, cartridges, inks and paper now can be handled quickly and easily by using a new online service offered by Canon Business Solutions, the sales and service subsidiaries of Canon U.S.A., Inc.
The site, "eSolutions'', can be found at www.esolutions.canon.com. It provides one-stop shopping for Canon and non-Canon products for digital imaging and networked office systems. Canon U.S.A., Inc. is a subsidiary of Canon Inc.
