Epson Philippines announces its latest product offerings and sustainability initiatives for 2023 at Fusion, the company’s 14th iteration of its annual media event.
The company reported an 8% year-over-year growth for 2022, driven by its strong performance in various product categories such as CAD, projectors, scanners, and signage. It also maintained its market leadership in inkjet printers, POS printers, textile printers, scanners, and high-brightness projectors, according to data from the International Data Corporation (IDC).
Epson Philippines President Masako Kusama said that the company aims to achieve a 12% year-over-year growth in 2023 by focusing on its B2B transformation and digitalization. She also highlighted the company’s commitment to sustainability and its green initiatives in the past year, such as its Food Shed project in Tarlac, its Mangrove Restoration Project in Palawan with WWF-Philippines, and its global campaign #MakeTheSwitch that encourages energy conservation.
“Our silver (25th) anniversary will be marked with projects that include meaningful partnerships with private organizations and government agencies, and more CSR and environmental initiatives within our communities,” said Kusama. “Epson Philippines, together with our partners, is on a journey towards our goal of a circular economy.”
“Epson is aiming even higher for 2023. The company is focused on driving B2B transformation by leveraging on digital and streamlining operations,” said Epson Philippines Marketing Division Head Eduardo Bonoan. He added that Epson Philippines is committed to focusing more on its B2B products and increasing its year-over-year growth to 12% in 2023.
Among the new products that Epson Philippines introduced for 2023 are the SurePress industrial printer range, the large format printers and dye-sublimation printers under the SureColor R-Series, the business inkjet printers, and the home and office smart projectors. These products are designed to deliver high-quality, high-speed, reliable, flexible, and efficient performance while minimizing environmental impact.
Epson Philippines Senior Manager of the Vertical Business Department Noelle Gonzalez also shared the company’s efforts to align its operations with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). She said that Epson Philippines will focus on three priority SDGs: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure; Responsible Consumption and Production; and Partnership for the Goals.
“We need a collective mindset shift on par with the one that gave birth to recycling decades ago. It is time we embrace the idea of a circular economy,” said Kusama. “Epson Philippines commits to working hand in hand with our partners, urging everyone to embrace circularity. While we have been actively working towards a sustainable and circular future, today, we ask you to join in on our mission. Let us navigate this journey together, towards a greener future.”
