This Week in the Copier Industry 10 Years Ago, The First Week in August 2008

 

A little of news this week is that the US Dollar is growing stronger vs the Japanese Yen.  When this has happened in the past Japanese copier manufacturers have decreased pricing here in the States.  When you couple this with the Chinese tariffs that may go into effect this week, it could mean that our industry may not see price increases.  Japanese manufacturers might just bite the bullet on the increases in order to keep boxes moving out of the plants.

BTW, the dude in the picture, had just a few too many drinks at the after party from the award night. Can ya tell!

Enjoy the threads from ten years ago this week!
