The Legacy of the Reliable IBM 4247 Printer

For many years, IBM sold the IBM InfoPrint 4247 printers and customers assumed that they were actually built by IBM. The fact is, they never were really "BUILT BY IBM"; they were all manufactured to IBM's specifications by the Italian company Compuprint. Industrial printers from IBM and InfoPrint, including the 4247, were discontinued in 2011 when Ricoh shut down InfoPrint general office printer sales.
