California picks Samsung to supply laser-jets
Samsung Electronics said yesterday it won a three-year contract to supply printers to the state government of California.
The company did not specify the amount of the deal but said it will supply laser-jet printers to 150 government offices in California for the next three years. Samsung also said the deal marked the company’s largest contract with a government.
Samsung currently has the second-largest share, about 20 percent, in the global market for laser-jet printers with 7.75 million units sold in 2011, up 15.7 percent from 6.7 million units sold a year earlier.
The company, however, has the fourth-largest market share, about 8 percent, in the U.S. market, the world’s second-largest market for laser printers following China.
