Canon (Tokyo, Japan) and Océ (Venlo, The Netherlands) have announced the official corporate name change of the Canon Group Company Océ, to Canon Production Printing. After joining the Canon Group in 2010, Océ continued to develop and manufacture its printing products under the Océ brand. By re-naming Océ to Canon Production Printing and integrating Océ products under the Canon brand, the OEMs said that the move 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.”
The official change of the company name comes into effect on January 1, 2020. “Since its establishment in 1877, Océ has introduced a number of unique copying and printing technologies. 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,” the companies added.
