"The new line of laser printers and all-in-ones offer small to mid-size businesses features that can help save time and money," said Steve Feldstein, Director of Marketing, Laser Products, Brother International Corporation. "And, coupled with exceptional customer service, unmatched product reliability and extensive mobile printing options, these machines deliver worry-free printing."
