Following announcement of the details of Seiko Epson Corp’s plans for its UK factory in Telford (CI No 617), the company has introduced in the UK its GQ3500 laser printer, which hit the US in October (CI No 549): aimed at the low end of the laser printer market which, according to Epson’s figures, will grow by 80% this year, from 1,500 units to 2,700; that still represents just 3% of the UK printer market, estimated to have been 650,000 units in 1986; the GQ3500 is a low-end, six-page-per-minute 68000-based printer with seven internal fonts, 512Kb RAM and a Ricoh engine and Epson hopes to take a 25% slice of the low-end UK market with the GQ3500, which will be available here in May, at a price, to be fixed in April, to be under UKP1,900.
