Sharp Registers 111 Percent Sales In 2006
MAHWAH, NJ – Sharp Document Solutions Company of America (SDSCA) reported record-setting sales growth for 2006, led by a nearly three-fold sales increase (292 percent) in color MFP (multifunctional peripheral) shipments as well as an overall MFP sales boost of eleven percent as compared to 2005.
“Our year over year revenue and unit growth has been exceptional,” said Ed McLaughlin, president, SDSCA. “Our outstanding product line has helped our dealers sell more Sharp products and outpace the industry growth. Once again, Sharp is able to report this type of growth while providing certified sales data to insure the integrity of the copier market reports.”
In 2006, Sharp delivered a full line of eight advanced color MFPs in just six months, creating one of the strongest color lines in the business. The entire MX Series line has received awards from leading industry analysts including Buyers Laboratory Inc Color Product Line of the Year, Industry Analysts, Inc, as well as marking an industry first with a BERTL Five Star award across the entire MX series product line.
"Our new color MX line has provided Sharp the ability to quickly gain overall market share as well as gain the important mindshare in our dual line dealers,” said Rich Boomsma, vice president of sales, SDSCA. “What is even more impressive is the color business has been mostly incremental as our monochrome sales have held steady. Our customers now have award winning product in every category we offer, making us a very strong contender in the market."
