Océ has created Océ Imagistics, combining the office business of its recent acquisition Imagistics International and the digital printing centres business of Océ UK.
Jan Dix, on the board of executive directors at Océ, said: "With in excess of 100 dedicated sales people supported by a world-class service organisation, we are able to focus on opportunities in the networked office, large corporate and public sector digital printing centres, commercial printing and high-speed production printing markets."
The announcement came as the Dutch photocopier and printer maker posted a boost in Q4 earnings. The company’s EBIT for the quarter rose 134 per cent to €68 million ($82 million) with operating profit hitting the high-end of analysts’ forecasts at €27 million.
A full-year operating profit of €51.6 million was €16 million higher than the company’s own projection three months earlier.
Higher service revenues and cost cuts were responsible for the high results.
