Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced its acquisition of PrinterOn®, a pioneer in mobile cloud printing solutions based in Ontario.

“We are very excited that PrinterOn has become a part of the Samsung Team,” said Gregory Lee, President of Samsung Electronics North America Headquarters. “PrinterOn has a long history of innovation and a deep understanding of mobile cloud-based solutions.”
