OKI Data and Toshiba Tec, both of Japan, will be jointly developing MFPs using OKI LED print heads and Toshiba TEC controllers for Toshiba Tec products designed for global market distribution.
The two companies will pool their technological strengths and complementary core technologies. OKI plans to double sales of Managed Print Services based on its MFPs, while Toshiba Tec says it will strengthen its sales by adding its own-developed A4 size MFPs to its product portfolio.
OKI will also draw on Toshiba Tec’s Open Platform technology to provide a wide range of Managed Print Service solutions. Toshiba Tec’s full-color e-STUDIO 2050C A3 MFP, which will launch in Japan in July 2012, uses OKI Data LED print heads.
