Canon Solutions America, Inc. has announced an expansion to its collaboration with Legrand, North and Central America. The extension of the business relationship is centered on Canon Solutions America's support of the near 15 new companies Legrand, North and Central America recently acquired – the new U.S. Legrand accounts will each have access to Canon's office equipment and software tools.
The two entities recently collaborated to plant over 120 trees as part of the Arbor Day Foundation's "Replanting our Forests Program," which Canon supports by contributing to the distribution and planting of one tree for every eligible image RUNNER ADVANCE multifunction system sold.
"Ensuring our Purchasing Partnerships help minimize our environmental impact is important to us at Legrand," said Susan Rochford, VP, Energy Efficiency, Sustainability, and Public Policy. "We are excited to be announcing this unique initiative as part of our commitment to building sustainability into everything we do, including our ongoing relationship with Canon Solutions America."
Working together on numerous projects, Canon Solutions America and Legrand, North and Central America enjoy a longstanding relationship with each other that's grown significantly over the last five years. The two companies collaborated on an electronic fax distribution solution that routes incoming faxes throughout an organization.
"A few years ago we were selected as the strategic vendor to implement a printer reduction strategy throughout Legrand as part of their sustainability goals," said Peter Kowalczuk, president, Canon Solutions America. "We are committed to helping our customers reach new heights in their sustainability efforts, which in turn can help create a ripple effect on a local, national and international scale. We are excited to build on this great relationship with Legrand North and Central America's most recent company acquisitions and demonstrate to our customers that we are here to help them in their mission to become economically, socially and environmentally sustainable."
