Canon to increase colour capacity for Business Continuity with Océ ColorStream
Business Continuity Ltd, which specialises in providing disaster recovery and business continuity solutions for the high volume print and mail industry, has installed an Océ ColorStream 3900 web supplied by Canon UK.
A long term high volume Canon Océ customer based in Northampton, Business Continuity selected Canon, despite competitive pressures, because of its best in class service offering and partnership approach. The ColorStream platform has approximately 50% market share in Europe and will allow Business Continuity to transition from older colour web toner printer platforms, and better support high volume inkjet customers with a colour or mono print capability of over 50,000 duplex A4 sheets per hour.
Business Continuity managing director Mark Allan said: ‘We have always valued our longstanding partnership with Canon. It has provided us with not only impressive engineering and technical support, but also general flexibility with capacity rates. With colour lasers typically only able to produce 80 to 150 A4 images per minute, having an additional system that can produce 1700 colour images per minute is a much needed capability for a high volume and security print provider.’
Business Continuity has achieved outstanding results since installing the Océ ColorStream. Mark continued, ‘We needed to upgrade our capability in line with client requirements, and be able to respond quickly and efficiently to their needs. Following installation, Canon has allowed our colour capacity to increase from approximately 800,000 colour A4 prints per day to three million – this is a huge milestone for us and we look forward to seeing our capabilities continue to grow using Canon printing systems.’
