HP Acquires Samsung Printer Business; Combining the Power of HP and Professional Performance of Sams
HP Inc. (Hewlett Packard) is the world leader in printing, has acquired Samsung Electronics Printer Business. This is the largest print acquisition in HP's history and accelerates its growth opportunities in the copier segment, strengthens its leading laser printing portfolio that has been established with Canon, and paves the way for future printing innovation. It also creates new avenues for growth and greater profitability for partners as they expand opportunities for managed print services as well as entirely new business opportunities with efficiency, and security for clients.
Samsung's printer business also brings HP a compelling portfolio of more than 6,500 printing patents and a world-class workforce that includes nearly 1,300 researchers and engineers with advanced expertise in laser printer technology, imaging electronics, and printer supplies and accessories to support continued innovation in print market solutions. HP and Samsung will now leverage their combined capacity for innovation to further enhance the value of their products.
Barlop has been a Samsung Dealer the past 5 years, and with this transition, is now an HP dealer as well. Barlop will be an authorized dealer for Samsung and HP’s formidable portfolio of A3 Multifunction Printers that deliver the performance of copiers with the power, simplicity, reliability and ease-of-use of printers. Samsung and HP are working to reinvent the copier business and use as few as seven replaceable parts. Integrating the Samsung printer business' products, including their mobile-first and cloud-first user experience, with HP's next-generation PageWide technologies will create a breakthrough selection of printing solutions within the Copier Industry.
