Founded in 1991, Lexmark was formed as a consequence of IBM divesting their printer and printer supply operations to an investment firm in a leveraged buyout. In the ensuing years, Lexmark has grown to become a global leader in imaging and output technology solutions and managed print services. Currently employing around 9000 and annual turnover of just over $3bn, Lexmark are a global imaging solutions company that are committed to creating customers for life. So, let’s take a closer look at how Lexmark are helping businesses across the world.

With an emphasis on sustainability, their core values ensure their social responsibility is recognised on a global scale by balancing economic, environmental and social concerns. To this end, Lexmark’s products and solutions offer their customers the opportunity to achieve their own sustainability goals.

True sustainability is at the heart of Lexmark’s business operations, from manufacturing and distribution processes to correct recycling of products at the end of their life. Moreover, their commitment to continual improvement can be seen from the way they design their products; the way they manage resources; and the way they live and work.
