Manila Standard reports that Epson Philippines Corp. is planning to increase its production to six million units of inkjet printers and 1.2 million units of projectors this year, with rising numbers of orders expected to maintain the company’s growth in sales.
According to the OEM, it achieved a 30 percent growth in the fiscal year 2011-2012, with demand “fuelled by corporate and government demand for printers”. Toshimitsu Tanaka, Country Manager at Epson Philippines added that demand from the government made up around 30 percent of sales in the last fiscal year.
“Printing demand is still growing. Corporate and industrial demand continue to grow every year,” Tanaka said. “We’re expecting lower sales coming from a high base in [the] previous year. But we’re positive we’ll still grow significantly.”
The Recycler reported in October that Epson was seeking to expand its plant in Lipa, Batangas; with the company applying for registration with the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) and hoping to increase its workforce from 6,000 to 8,000.
