KITCHENER, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 7, 2009) - The announcement of a global partnership between Kitchener based PrinterOn Corporation and Ricoh Company Ltd. simplifies secure wireless printing for mobile workers. The announcement means Ricoh will place its HotSpot Printers with embedded PrinterOn technology everywhere in the world that people want secure wireless printing.

"PrinterOn's partnership with Ricoh means the rapid deployment of the next generation in wireless printing outside the traditional office environment" said Angus Cunningham, CEO of PrinterOn. "This partnership means more people on the move will have simple, convenient, secure printing of documents, emails and attachments directly from their laptop, BlackBerry®, iPhone™ and other mobile device."

PrinterOn is an all Canadian company that has developed wireless printing for mobile electronic devices that will one day become as essential to our everyday business lives as the BlackBerry."

Dean Braund, CEO of Williams Coffee Pubs and host of the announcement, said that he is pleased that Williams is once again on the cutting edge of incorporating new technology into the stores. "Williams customers have long enjoyed our free wireless Internet and our pilot test of wireless printing at this location has been a tremendous success with our customers."
