TINLEY PARK, Ill. — (September 12, 2019) — Panduit Corp., a global leader of innovative electrical and network infrastructure solutions, will enter into a strategic partnership with Seiko Epson Corporation to jointly develop printers and labels for the industrial, construction and network infrastructure marketplaces.
Under the terms of the partnership, Epson will develop and manufacture new label printers for Panduit apart from its own brand LABELWORKS PX series. These products will integrate the strengths of both companies—the strength of Epson’s label printers and the strength of Panduit’s special label media lineup and Easy-Mark Plus™ software to meet the needs of customers across a broad spectrum of industries.
Koichi Kubota, Representative Director, Senior Managing Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer of Seiko Epson's Printing Solutions Operations Division has high hopes for the partnership with Panduit, saying, “In addition to a strong sales network, Panduit offers a wide range of special media for industrial labels, as well as the required processing technology. I am confident that the combination of Panduit’s media with Epson’s label printers will help us provide satisfaction to even more customers.”
The first two printers launched under this agreement, MP100 and MP300, will be showcased at the NECA show in Las Vegas, NV in September, alongside Panduit’s full industrial labeling solutions. Customers will be able to try out these printers at our booth and see the full capabilities of the products:
