I know, it is so hard to believe. 2015 is here, and man, has it been a wild opening month! Sales are brisk, the economy looks like it is rebounding a little bit and CBM is treading new horizons this coming year. First of all, we are making a foray into 3-D printing. I know, right?!? 3-D printing has been around for decades, but it is just now getting pushed to the forefront. Technology has gotten better and less expensive and now, you can buy desktop 3-D printers. Yes, I said desktop 3-D printers. This is actually a big deal because now schools that really wanted to get their hands on a 3-dimensional printing device can create a 3D lab for less money than creating a full-blown laser printing lab. And the educational perks are endless! Imagine talking about the internal human organs, and the lesson plans call for studying the human eyeball. You can go to the textbook to create the lesson plans, but studies show that students get more out of the 3-D visualization than a 2-dimensional book, so let's go to the 3-D printer and print the eyeball...in color...in high detail. Or an engineering class at the local college wants to do a mock up of a potential project. No problem! Jump on the printer and blast away! It is that simple!
We are also excited too, because we have decided to start the new year off with a bang and get some excitement growing about new technologies that are on the market. It has been a while since we had a technology show here at CBM, so on Tuesday, February 3, from 9am until 3pm, we are going to have Tech Show 2015, featuring the new Cube printer and the new Formax ColorMax 7 Memjet printer. Both of those products are fantastic time savers and product creators, and we are proud to offer and show them both. We will also be showing our two lines of shredders, our two lines of copiers/MFP systems and of course, the latest in low-cost laser printing.Things are moving and grooving here at CBM Business Machines, and we are poised to have a very good year for 2015. We continue to thank our customers for their support and for trusting us with their office technology. If you are just checking us out for the first time, give us a shot. Allow our 51 years of business experience to work for you!!
