DigiPro, a distributor of Canon Middle East in Egypt, has installed the first Canon professional printing solution in CRD environment in the country with Engineering Consultants Group (ECG), one of Egypt’s leading corporate entities within the construction sector.
The installation is the first of its kind for Canon in Egypt, The deal involved the installation of the Canon imagePRESS C6010 and two units of the Canon imageRUNNER C7260i in addition to a range of offline finishing machines that will now enable the company to have a fully equipped in-house printing facility.
“The digital and offset printing market in Egypt offers vast potential for Canon’s portfolio of digital printers, and we aim to capitalise on its strengths to capture a significant share of the business. Our partnership with DigiPro has helped us build in-roads for Canon’s cutting-edge professional printing solutions in Egypt with ECG. As a market-leading, customer-focused company providing a complete range of business solutions based on customer needs, we see this deal as an important first step in that direction,” said Hendrik Verbrugghe, Marketing Director, Canon Middle East.
Aimed primarily at the corporate print room and Print-for-Pay market, the imagePRESS C6010 delivers prints at 61 colour impressions-per-minute on a wide variety of stocks up to 325 gsm.
“We have been using another major brand for all our printing needs for the last eight years. However, we felt there was ample opportunity to streamline our in-house print infrastructure. After seeing the Canon imagePRESS C6010 digital machine and its qualities such as sharpness and the broad range of different media the system can handle, it was clear that this solution was the best available in this segment. The Canon solution has provided us with added value to our business by enabling us with greater in-house print efficiency and flexibility, which is critical in our business,” said Khaled Aziz. IT Director of ECG.
