Epson partners in portable label solutions

September 19, 2019

Seiko Epson Corporation and US-based Panduit Corporation have entered into a partnership in portable label solutions.

Panduit is an end-to-end electrical and network infrastructure provider of OEM, Industrial Construction and MRO, Enterprise, Data Centre and Industrial Networking solutions. These solutions include a wide variety of safety signage, labels, and identification products to support a wide variety of application needs. These products are sold through a global network of distributors who provide local inventory, product support and logistics services so their customers can expect to receive exactly what they need when they need it.

Epson’s LABELWORKS PX series of industrial labelling solutions are used in factories, network installations, and anywhere else wires and cables require identifying labels. Epson label printing solutions are easy to use and are packed with features that enable users to quickly and easily print custom labels for their particular application.

Under the terms of the partnership, Epson will develop and manufacture new label printers and supplies for Panduit apart from its own brand LABELWORKS PX series. In January 2020, Epson will release two products that will be sold through Panduit, the MP100 and MP300.

Epson will also commercialise label printer cartridges for Panduit’s special industrial label media, and both companies will add them to their product line-ups.

Epson said that these projects will integrate the strengths of both companies–the strength of Epson’s label printers and the strength of Panduit’s special media lineup–to realise industrial solutions that meet the needs of customers across a broad spectrum of industries. The companies will seek to provide these solutions to even more customers through their respective sales networks.

In the Americas, Epson has been selling LABELWORKS PX series printing solutions through its US subsidiary K-SUN Corporation.

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, said, “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.”

Dennis Renaud, President and CEO of Panduit commented: “A critical element of our strategy is to accelerate the development of solutions for our customers by partnering with great companies like Epson, whose technologies can be incorporated with our offering to bring value to our customers and partners.”
