printing deparment/room


Explanation:
Two large corporations, Price Waterhouse and KPMG, that I worked for called it printing department. This was usually a large room with a super-duper Xerox or HP machine that churned out oodles of copies of reports or what have you (like the one in the pic in first link below)

Explanation:

Regarding "repro":

I did see Google, with these four queries and got a total of only 120 hits for all .com and .uk sites. Of course, "reproduction" is both German and English with a tiny spelling change, BUUUUUUUT, it may be somewhat of a "false friend" in this context. I worked in this industry for many years in Australia and Germany and believe the term "repro" is more German than English.
