Tokyo-based Canon Inc. and Océ Holding B.V. announce that the official corporate name of Océ will become Canon Production Printing, beginning Jan. 1, 2020.
After joining the Canon Group in 2010, Océ continued to develop and manufacture its printing products under the Océ brand. By renaming Océ to Canon Production Printing and integrating the Océ products under the Canon brand, the company says, “we will create brand unity across all areas of our printing business, improve synergies across our portfolio and establish a clear end-to-end, go-to-market approach.”
“Since its establishment in (the Netherlands in) 1877, Océ has introduced a number of unique copying and printing technologies,” Canon writes in its announcement. “Through further integration with the Canon Group, Océ will continue to develop its core technologies and grow its market share as Canon Production Printing, in order to accelerate the growth of the Canon Group’s commercial printing business worldwide.”
