Oji Paper Subsidiary, KANZAN, Licenses NCR's Two-Sided Thermal Paper IP

KANZAN Spezialpapiere GmbH, a majority owned subsidiary of Oji Paper Co. Ltd., has agreed to license two-sided thermal paper intellectual property (IP) from NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR). This license gives KANZAN the worldwide right to make, use and sell two-sided thermal paper under NCR's two-sided thermal paper intellectual property.

"Our agreement with NCR allows us to expand our current specialty paper offer to our customers with a high quality range of two-sided thermal papers," said Andreas Löhr, general manager, Sales and Marketing, KANZAN. "The availability of two-sided printing applications continues to grow, and this new offering will help us give our clients access to the customer satisfaction and benefits of this printing process."

NCR's 2ST™ two-sided printing technology improves the efficiency of the printing process by allowing simultaneous printing on both the front and back side of a receipt or other media. By using less paper, it also helps reduce environmental impact while optimizing productivity and lowering costs.

"The addition of KANZAN as our newest 2ST paper licensee helps us ensure that our 2ST printing customers have a choice of a wide range of two-sided thermal papers, with easy availability on a globally basis," said Dan Bogan, senior vice president and general manager of NCR Consumables Solutions, a leading provider of printer consumables.

NCR is offering commercially attractive IP licensing terms to other printer manufacturers and paper mills interested in its two-sided thermal printing technology. For more information on NCR's licensing program, contact the company at two.sided@ncr.com.
