Transaction Includes Product Inventory, Converting, and Distribution Equipment for AzonColor(R), Comstoc(R), and Reprographic Classic(TM) Brands Imaging Supplies in Western U.S. Markets
Precision Paper recently purchased these assets from InteliCoat Technologies as part of a larger transaction in which InteliCoat divested their reprographic business, primarily known for the Azon(R) branded product line. Precision Paper, in turn, sold the interests in Arlington, TX and Torrance, CA to Oce. Financial details were not disclosed.
Through its Oce Imaging Supplies division, Oce will serve the former InteliCoat reprographic customers who purchased the AzonColor, Comstoc, and Reprographic Classic brands of supplies for reprographic and computer-aided design (CAD) printing applications.
Former Azon brand customers will be served through the current Oce sales and distribution network, effective immediately. Current Azon phone and fax numbers will remain in place for the next four weeks. A chart providing equivalent Oce products for over 200 Azon products is available at http://www.oceusa.com/azonproducts .
