Brother Canada Expands its Colour Printer and All-in-One Product Line

New additions deliver fastest colour performance for the money

DOLLARD-DES-ORMEAUX, QC, Nov. 23 /CNW Telbec/ - Brother International Corporation (Canada) Ltd, a leader in small and home-based office machines, today announced the launch of a new series of cost-effective colour printers and all-in-ones, geared towards the Small and Medium sized Business market. The two new colour printers (HL-3000 Series, ESP from $349.99 - $399.99 CDN*) and the three new colour all-in-ones (MFC-9000 Series, from ESP $499.99 - $599.99 CDN*), bolster Brother's colour line, and once again demonstrate Brother's ongoing commitment to delivering the ideal combination of performance features and a great overall value to small office business users.

"We understand that small business and home-based office professionals have a range of needs, and that when it comes to colour printers and all-in-ones, one size does not necessarily fit all," states Brother Canada's Senior Product Manager, Brian Caldwell. "By expanding our colour product line to include more compact and affordable models, busy small office users can now quickly produce high-quality colour office documents such as presentations, reports, brochures and spreadsheets with ease."

The new machines also set a new performance benchmark by delivering professional quality colour or monochrome printing at up to 17 pages per minute, which is the fastest colour print speed within each of their respective market segments. What's more, these compact new printers and all-in-ones use LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology, giving them a significantly smaller footprint than most existing colour laser products.

The addition of these brand new models to the colour line-up now enable Brother to address virtually every possible user need, from the home office to the small office workgroup, with the usual combination of user-friendliness and reliability embodied by the brand.

"Brother is committed to offering consumers a great value," continues Caldwell. "With these new models, we are able to offer professionals high-performing, fast machines with rich colour output at very attractive price points." The MFC-9010CN will be available as of December, while all other models are now available through multiple distribution channels across Canada, including office superstores, major retailers and distributors.
