May 25, 2020

Canon South Africa’s MD spoke in an interview about how it is looking for growth in the African markets and targets to grow to a €500 million ($545 million) business by 2022.

iTWeb published an interview with David Preston, MD of Canon SA, recently, where he discusses how the company is looking for expansion in Africa. Preston said that potentially there are going to be representative offices to come, to start the growth plan to become a €500 million ($545 million) business by the end of 2022. Preston also mentions that he is seeing it to be a “mixture of direct investment and skills training, internally and with partners, retailers and end-users.”

Preston added that he does believe that “printing goes beyond traditional print functions” and that “its evolution has shown great adoption to Industry 4.0.”

Talking about the evolution for the printing industry, Preston told iTWeb: “The integration of printing devices into IT infrastructure vastly increased their capacity to add value and streamline work processes for companies, simultaneously creating opportunities for Canon.”
