Venlo, The Netherlands, - Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery, today announced that InfoTrends has ranked Océ once again in the top position in the combined US and Western European geographies in the production color continuous feed market segment.
Leading 30% in production color continuous feed market segment
InfoTrends is an industry leader in market intelligence for the printing community. The institute reports that in 2010, Océ expanded its leading position to 30% in the production color continuous feed market segment with its Océ JetStream inkjet family and the Océ ColorStream 10000 Flex products. This places Océ in the top position for the second year in a row.
"Océ offers the broadest product range for continuous feed in the industry, productive and flexible workflow solutions, extremely reliable service plus an upgrade strategy that protects the investments of our customers. All key elements for the continued success of Océ," explained Sebastian Landesberger, Executive Vice President Océ Production Printing.
From monochrome to full color
The recently launched Océ ColorStream 3500 printing system, with its twin concept and several smart and unique features, permits easy conversion of monochrome applications to color. The datacenter infrastructure fit regarding size, weight and power supply, as well as seamless integration into existing environments with regard to workflow and finishing, makes it easy to replace older toner-based continuous feed systems with the new Océ ColorStream 3500, thus accelerating the transition from black & white to color.
"The Océ ColorStream 3500 system and new models of the Océ JetStream family to be introduced during 2011 will further strengthen the Océ printing portfolio, providing an excellent platform for further growth," stated Crit Driessen, Vice President Marketing and Strategy.
No. 1 in black & white in continuous feed printer market
According to InfoTrends, Océ also captured the number one position in the b&w continuous feed printer market for the fifteenth consecutive year. "Although a lot of the focus in the industry is around color, the volume of documents printed in black & white remains high. The b&w printer market remains a cornerstone of our strategy and business," said Landesberger.
