Océ, a Canon Group company and an international leader in digital document management, today announced that Mal Baboyian, President of Océ North America Production Printing Systems, will participate in a select panel of industry leaders at the NPES 2011 Annual Conference, October 17-19, 2011. The “Member Panel: Pioneering New Partnerships” offers a glimpse of how highly innovative former competitors—Océ/Canon and KBA/Donnelly—are cooperatively paving the way to new models of success.

NPES is a U.S. trade association of over 400 companies in the Graphic Arts market that manufacture and distribute equipment, systems, software, supplies used in printing, publishing and converting. Océ is proud of its support for NPES, including involvement in the PRIMIR (Print Industries Market Information and Research) organization and through representation on the NPES Board of Directors.

“We are strongly committed to NPES and to the Graphic Arts industry. The market is undergoing unprecedented change, and this panel will help attendees look at new ways to leverage partnerships in order to capture new business opportunities,” said Baboyian, who also serves on the NPES Board of Directors.

With more than 30 years of sales and executive experience with Océ, Mal Baboyian has been instrumental in building Océ into a market leader. Drawing upon his hands-on experience on the “front line,” he leads Océ North America Production Printing Systems with a strong, customer-driven perspective and thorough understanding of the overall document imaging market and industry.

Océ is respected throughout the industry for outstanding production print leadership and a technologically advanced product line for high-volume environments. Océ has leveraged its heritage of market-leading innovations to solve business problems facing customers in the Graphic Arts market and facilitate the offset-to-digital transformation occurring within the industry.

“Graphic Arts companies choose Océ to support a variety of their digital print requirements, as our market-leading technology meets the demands of the marketplace. Even in a challenging economy, we have made inroads in key market segments and solidified our continuous feed dominance. We are proud to be recognized as a key supplier of color inkjet presses that can meet current and future needs of Graphic Arts printers, even in challenging economic environments,” Baboyian continued.

“Our results have been equally impressive in the competitive cut-sheet arena, where our awarding-winning Océ VarioPrint 6000 products have established leadership in just a few years,” he added. “We look forward to sharing the lessons of our leadership and experience to attendees at the conference who want to create their own opportunities for success in Graphic Arts.”
