Brother signs deal with ScanSource to distribute mobile printer range

Print and technology specialist Brother has signed a pan-European collaboration and distribution agreement with ScanSource for Brother’s PJ mobile printer range.

Established in 1992, ScanSource is a value-added distributor of specialty technology products, providing AIDC, point-of-sale and communications products, as well as services and support to resellers.

The addition of Brother’s PJ series will enhance ScanSource’s offering, as the only A4 thermal mobile printer it offers.


Brother’s five-model PJ range, a fast, compact solution, is ideal for professionals and field workers who need to print on the move. The unique series uses direct thermal print technology, giving added convenience for mobile users with no need for ink, toner or ribbons.


The latest model in Brother’s PJ series, the PJ-673 is its first mobile printer to feature iOS® compatibility, facilitating wireless printing from an Apple® iPad® and iPhone®


Ian Metcalfe, Executive Director Services & Solutions at Brother International Europe, said: “ScanSource has a clear philosophy, to be a partner to its reseller customers, not a competitor. This spirit resonates with Brother’s own ethos ‘At your side’, making this pan-European agreement for our PJ series a strategic complement.” 

Maurice Van Rijn, Managing Director for ScanSource POS and Barcode in Europe, added: “Brother’s solution will be a great enhancement to our printer line, ensuring resellers continue to have access to the highest-quality mobile printing solutions, wrapped with the value-added services and support ScanSource offers.”

The agreement with ScanSource also includes Brother’s RJ and MW mobile printer ranges.
