MELVILLE, N.Y., July 26, 2016 – With the successful launch of the third generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform earlier this year, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, continues the positive momentum with seven accolades from Buyers Laboratory, LLC (BLI). Among the honors include recognition of several new third generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE systems with four ‘Pick’ awards for performance in the A3 category, as well as three other awards to certain imageRUNNER and imageRUNNER ADVANCE models for environmental efficiency. Selections for ‘Pick’ awards are made by BLI’s staff of technicians and editors after subjecting a number of devices from every major original equipment manufacturer to BLI’s comprehensive lab tests in the last six months.
“We are thrilled that BLI has awarded Canon yet again with multiple Summer ‘Pick’ awards,” said Toyo Kuwamura, executive vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The awards for the newly introduced models on the third generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform are extremely gratifying and all of the accolades are a testament to the productivity benefits that the imageRUNNER ADVANCE and imageRUNNER systems can offer to the customer. Thank you to BLI for again recognizing Canon’s focused dedication to providing businesses with productive and energy efficient solutions.”
