Ricard Santos announced that his company has become the master Pelikan distributor for hardcopy products for the territory of Spain and Portugal.
Steve Weedon (PRPS, CEO) explained that the Pelikan branded hardcopy products distribution strategy has had to change to adapt to industry changes and, also, the full impact of COVID-19 on office-based print demand.
Moving away from a direct distribution model to a master distribution model enables Pelikan branded stock to be held in all strategic markets to serve local business needs on a global scale.
Weedon said: “Our progress made since early 2021 now means we have a strong family of master distributors able to serve our customers across UK and Europe, with Santos Printing being the latest to join the family. Ricard, has had a long association with the Pelikan brand and understands its brand value and market position, so we are delighted that he comes on board under our master distributor programme for Spain and Portugal.”
“One of the key factors in making this decision for the long term, was the innovation of new important products that create unique features and benefits for my customers,” said Ricard Santos.
“These innovations come from continual research and development that result in patented technologies that simply tick all the boxes. “No Waste” cartridge designs, means all the toner in the cartridge gets used on the printed page, unlike typical original and after-market cartridges that can still have 15% of the toner in the cartridge when replaced, that on its own reduces the CO2 footprint and that’s what we all want. (…) I’m excited by these products and our future now,” added Santos.
