Fuji Xerox supports Japanese customer in business expansion
The company supports Kyoshin Paper & Package Co. advancement into South Korea.
With Fuji Xerox’s global sales network, Fuji Xerox Co., Ltd. is supporting Kyoshin Paper & Package Co., Ltd. to expand its business into overseas markets. Digital package printing is a growing market and through this support for Kyoshin Paper & Package, Fuji Xerox aims to promote further expansion of the digital printing market.
Based in Kobe, Japan, Kyoshin Paper & Package is a paper container and package printing and manufacturing company. It is also one of Fuji Xerox’s Premier Partners.
Fuji Xerox served as an intermediate in negotiations between Kyoshin Paper & Package and an overseas printing firm as well as supporting the process until contracts are signed between the two by providing linguistic and other overall assistance.
Kyoshin Paper & Package aims to advance into five countries within two years through support from Fuji Xerox. As the first step of its overseas expansion, Kyoshin Paper & Package has teamed up with DPLUS Co., Ltd., a South Korean printing company who is also a Premier Partner using Xerox iGen 5 150 Press and other Fuji Xerox production printers.
Kyoshin Paper & Package will provide consulting services concerning the production and sales of paper containers and packages, and grant the Korean partner with a franchise for the localised Hacoplay system. Hacoplay is an online package printing service site with proven popularity in Japan, and equipped with an online price quotation system. DPLUS will commence Hacoplay services in South Korea on August 28.
In the South Korean market, where online ordering and print-on-demand package printing services have not taken hold as strongly as in Japan, DPLUS plans to launch the new business efficiently with the Hacoplay system and knowhow of Kyoshin Paper & Package, as well as assistance from Fuji Xerox Korea, Fuji Xerox’s local sales company. DPLUS aims to generate sales of 1.5 billion won (about 1.3 million USD) over the next two years.
The partnership aids in Fuji Xerox’s goal to expand the print-on-demand package printing market in the Asia-Pacific region. Through this collaboration, both companies will share each other’s ideas and knowhow with a view to establishing a long-term partnership, including joint development of a new printing system.
