Melbourne-based Multimedia Technology (MMT) is stepping into the printer market through a new distribution deal with Brother. Purchasing manager, Michael Muscat, said it had been approached by the vendor.
"It was a gaping hole in our product offering," he said. "Previously, we have not had the opportunity to work directly with a printer vendor and we really didn't want to go with a main stream brand like Canon, HP and Epson.
"Brother is not in a very crowded space and we feel that we can do something with it."
MMT will initially distribute Brother's range of entry-level colour and multifunction inkjet printers, which include the DCP-130C, MFC-240C and MFC-665CW.
"We are just taking it one step at a time because Brother has a very complete range of products," Muscat said. "We will slowly move onto their office products such as the laser printers and multifunction laser devices."
Muscat said he expected to see a moderate increase in the company's revenues.
"It will take a bit of time for our clients and sales people to get their heads around the fact that we are in this market," he said. "A steady build up is what we are aiming for."
