HP Inc. selected ALSO to market its A3 copiers and printers products across 14 countries in Europe, including Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, the three Baltic countries, and Hungary. It expects to begin selling the HP products in the second quarter of 2017.
