HP Canada announced that Ernest Green & Son Ltd. (EGS), one of Canada’s largest independent distributors of graphic arts products and services, has joined the HP Commercial Channel Partner program. EGS, with a team of 25 sales and nine technical staff, will sell HP’s large-format Designjet printers and commercial Scitex devices nationally.
For more than 60 years, EGS had been based in Mississauga, Ontario, and now has stocking warehouses in Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto and Montreal.
“We’ve seen an increased demand from our customers for high-quality digital printing solutions and we’re excited to provide them with the latest wide-format printing technology from HP,” said Mike Wildbore, National Business Manager for Wide-Format Equipment at EGS. The company plans to schedule HP-based demonstration road shows in the coming months.
“We’re confident that this new relationship with EGS will benefit our customers as they transition from analog to digital printing,” said Danny Ionescu, VP, Graphic Solutions Business, HP Canada. “In addition to allowing us to reach new markets, this collaboration will provide our customers with access to the latest wide-format digital printing technology needed to grow their existing business.”
