Epson believes that acquiring K-Sun Corporation will enable it to better serve industrial customers with the ever expanding line of Epson label printing solutions - from the desktop to the industrial press.
Junichi Watanabe, Director & Chief Operating Officer, Epson's Visual Products Operations Division, commented, "We are delighted to take our partnership with K-Sun to the next stage. The acquisition will not only give us access to K-Sun's expertise in industrial label printing, but will help boost the Epson brand and increase exposure of Epson's label printers in this important strategic market."
Michael Kasun, Founder & President, K-Sun, said, "K-Sun has enjoyed a strategic partnership with Epson since 1994. Now as a member of Epson's prestigious group of companies, we are very excited for our future and the new products and supplies that we can offer our customers and the expanded opportunities for our employees."
Specialising in industrial and safety marking/ identification, pipe marking, and wire/ cable labeling, K-Sun will begin with selling the innovative Epson-branded line-up of LabelWorks label printers for industrial applications in North America from January 2015, while Epson America will continue its focus on promoting LabelWorks label printers to the consumer and office markets. Expansion of the product line offerings will also follow.
