Printing solutions firm Sir Speedy India has entered into a strategic partnership with office equipment major Xerox to expand its footprint in India. Sir Speedy, one of the world's largest franchised network of printing and marketing service providers, also plans to open 20 outlets in India by 2015.

"The partnership will enable us to build up our India strategy and expand footprint in the country by leveraging Xerox's indomitable strengths in technology and pan India reach," Sir Speedy India Managing Director Chandrajit Narra told PTI. Xerox has been globally associated with Sir Speedy since 30 years and helped them meet printing demands in the most efficient and cost controlled manner, he added.

Xerox India Production Systems Group Head Pankaj Kalra said: "Printing in India today is not very diversified and our association with Sir Speedy brings more products and services and adds value to the service."

Presently, Sir Speedy has presence in Hyderabad and Bangalore at four outlets and plans to add over 20 franchisees by end of 2015, Narra said.

"As part of this exercise, we plan to organise franchise meets in key metros that started off with the Delhi and Mumbai chapter from January 27th. At these meetings, Sir Speedy along with Xerox India are explaining the key benefits of joining the Sir Speedy Printing Franchise network in these cities and pan-India," he added.

According to analyst estimates, the Indian digital printing market is worth about USD 2.3 billion.
