Marking its 25th year in the country, Epson Philippines hosted a launch event with the theme “Unlock the Future” at its new office space in Pasig City. The event signals two major milestones for the organization: the official opening of its new Philippine headquarters complete with solution centers, and a new series of heat-free business inkjet printers designed to drive Epson’s continued growth in the B2B space.
Enabling growth and development in the Philippine market
The Philippines has long been an important region and a growth market for Epson, and the global technology leader has developed a strong presence in the local market throughout its two decades of operation in the Philippines.
For Epson Philippines, its move to the new headquarters embodies its commitment to continue its contribution to the growth of the Philippine market as well as the enrichment of Filipino lives through efficient, compact, and precise innovation designed to create a sustainable future. To further empower customers across the Philippines, Epson has transformed its new space to accommodate its new Solution Centers.
“With the move to our new office, we have consolidated our resourcing in one place. We have housed everything under one roof so that our customers and our partners can access all our products right here at our new Solution Center,” said Masako Kusama, Epson Philippines Corporation President. “Moreover, it is from our new headquarters that we will aggressively put into action Epson’s commitment to a more sustainable future as we continue to create breakthroughs that will change the way our customers conduct business.”
Keeping sustainability at the forefront of innovation
As Epson grows, sustainability continues to be a major part of Epson’s DNA and the core of its business. The company believes that global efforts to advance sustainability can have a greater impact if they collaborate with communities and organizations that share the same core values.
One of Epson’s long-term partnerships is with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), where both organizations have developed projects focused on marine conservation, climate change education, and sustainable production systems for low-income communities.
As an organization, Epson has also prioritized transforming its operations to make way for more sustainable policies. One of its latest manifestations was transitioning the Epson plant in the Philippines to run on 100% renewable energy. Moreover, with problems like resource depletion and global warming, Epson recognizes the demand for products and services that use resources efficiently. In seeking to close the resource loop, Epson is taking initiatives to reduce product size and weight, use recycled materials, and extend service lives—especially with their printing solutions.
“Epson’s heat-free technology is our response to urgent environmental issues as we contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions,” said Koichi Kubota, Director of Seiko Epson Corporation. “Reducing heat in the printing process of our Epson inkjet printers delivers unparalleled benefits not just to our customers but also to the environment.”
Ushering in the new era of printing in the B2B space
The climate crisis remains front of mind for many young working adults. Sustainable solutions within the workplace is a much needed first step towards addressing this concern. As much as a paperless future is becoming common, the demand for paper will still exist. It is important for Epson to align its products with sustainable initiatives to reduce environmental impact.
Epson also unveiled the Workforce Enterprise AM Series, the technology leader’s new range of heat-free business inkjet printers in the mid-speed range. This completes the lineup of Epson’s offering to help businesses of every size realize an environmentally conscious office. Powered by Heat-Free technology, the new series marries innovation and sustainability—offering more productive ink usage, reducing overall cost, and offering a smaller footprint that comes with enabled solutions, thus setting the standard for more sustainable printing solutions.
The Workforce Enterprise AM Series of Linehead Inkjet printers are set be available in the Philippine market this Q1 2023 with a three-product lineup: AM-C4000, C5000 and C6000.
To continue its promise to customers for even more productive, efficient, and sustainable printing solutions, Epson will end the sale and distribution of laser printer hardware in its lineup by end of 2023 in the Southeast Asia region.
“A new era of printing has indeed arrived, and we are proud to finally have come to this moment and become the leader of sustainable printing solutions in the market,” concluded Epson Southeast Asia Regional Managing Director Siew Jin Kiat, who led the ceremonial unlocking of the Philippine headquarters. “With the launch of our new Philippine headquarters and the launch of our latest line of enterprise inkjet printers, we sincerely look forward to unlocking the future.”
