Now production operations can affordably add color capabilities to their services, capturing new business and gaining more share of existing customers.
"Océ recognizes that the impact of color is driving more customers to seek digital color production solutions, and we continue to expand our color products to meet the varied needs of the marketplace," added Guy Broadhurst, Senior Vice President, Product Marketing, Océ North America, Inc., Commercial Printing Division.
