Océ transfers R&D and manufacturing of flatbed printing systems from Vancouver to Europe
Océ is moving the manufacturing of Océ Arizona large format printers from Vancouver in Canada to Poing in Germany. From the end of September 2018, all Océ Arizona flatbed printers will be manufactured at the Océ Poing plant. In addition to expanding its own team of people, the supplier network is also being expanded. Océ has been manufacturing models of the Océ Arizona large format printer series in Poing for several years. R&D will be moved to Venlo to benefit from the Inkjet technology expertise in this site.
By concentrating flatbed manufacturing in one location in close proximity to its inkjet R&D teams, Océ aims to accelerate future innovation to benefit customers worldwide in the graphic arts and industrial printing markets. Both the manufacturing workforce in Poing and the Venlo, Netherlands-based R&D team are being expanded to support the transfer of manufacturing from Vancouver, Canada.
