    Fujifilm To Enter Commercial Inkjet Printer Market

    TOKYO – Japan’s Fujifilm Holdings said on Friday it would enter the market
    for industrial inkjet printers from this month to spur sales of ink cartridges.

    The company said it would aim for annual sales of 20 billion yen ($169
    million) of the new printers and ink by the business year 2009/10.

    Fujifilm will buy the printers on an original equipment manufacturing (OEM)
    basis from a unit of Mutoh Holdings and Dutch maker Oce NV and market them
    together with ink from the U.K.-based ink maker Sericol Group Ltd. that it
    acquired in 2005.

    Fujifilm has been investing in new areas such as liquid crystal display-use
    film, health care and office equipment to offset shrinking demand for
    photographic film.

    In its inkjet-related business, Fujifilm bought U.S. print head maker
    Dimatric Inc. and ink dye supplier Avecia Inkjet Ltd. last year.

    The company said it would launch the new business in
    the United States this month and later expand into Europe and Japan.
