Business Continuity installs an Oce ColorStream 3900 web

Canon to increase colour capacity for Business Continuity with Océ ColorStream.

Business Continuity Ltd, which specialises in providing disaster recovery and business continuity solutions for the high volume print and mail industry, has installed an Océ ColorStream 3900 web supplied by Canon UK.

A long-term high volume Canon Océ customer based in Northampton, Business Continuity selected Canon, despite competitive pressures, because of its best-in-class service offering and partnership approach. The ColorStream platform has approximately 50% market share in Europe* and will allow Business Continuity to transition from older colour web toner printer platforms, and better support high volume inkjet customers with a colour or mono print capability of over 50,000 duplex A4 sheets per hour.

Business Continuity Managing Director, Mark Allan, said: “We have always valued our longstanding partnership with Canon. They have provided us with not only impressive engineering and technical support, but also general flexibility with capacity rates. With colour lasers typically only able to produce 80-150 A4 images per minute, having an additional system that can produce 1,700 colour images per minute is a much-needed capability for a high volume and security print provider.”

Business Continuity has achieved outstanding results since installing the Océ ColorStream. Allan continued: “We needed to upgrade our capability in line with client requirements, and be able to respond quickly and efficiently to their needs. Following installation, Canon has allowed our colour capacity to increase from approximately 800,000 colour A4 prints per day to three million – this is a huge milestone for us and we look forward to seeing our capabilities continue to grow using Canon printing systems.”

Stuart Rising, Canon UK’s Head of Commercial Print said: “From a production perspective, it’s great to see that Business Continuity is satisfied with the installation of the Océ ColorStream. It is our pleasure to provide the company with equipment that meets the increasing demands from its customers and provides high quality printing at scale, and we are excited to continue our partnership.”
