According to a recent IDC overview of the Western Europe office printer market, Sharp attained “the highest unit sales growth of all office equipment manufacturers” during 2018’s third quarter.
As Dealer Support reveals, Sharp experienced a growth in multi-function printer sales of 22 percent compared to the same period in 2017, with its value growth reported by IDC at 18 percent.
Phil Sargeant, Program Director, Imaging and Hardcopy Devices and Document Solutions, European region, IDC, said: “The data shows that Sharp gained in strength even while the overall market showed a slight decline. We saw growth for Sharp in all areas, especially in sales of A3 colour devices and geographically, in France, Germany, Switzerland and the UK.”
Peter Plested, Director, Information Systems, Sharp Europe said: “We have worked hard to design devices with a focus on productivity and security so that our customers’ success becomes our success. We see these results as an endorsement of the refresh of our A3 range and the launch of our new A4 devices. All our latest models share the same intuitive user interface so whichever device customers choose, the user and IT experiences are the same.”
