Recharger Magazine Bought by Recycling Times Media23 Jan, 2014
China/USA - January 22, 2014 - Recharger Magazine, well known and read by cartridge remanufacturers around the world, was purchased from 1105 Media by Recycling Times Media on January 17, 2014, as part of its strategy to expand its global reach with its existing English, Chinese, Spanish and Korean publications.
Recharger Magazine helped readers to grow their remanufacturing businesses for more than 25 years—almost as long as the aftermarket cartridge industry has existed. It provides news, technical procedures, new product profiles, industry member profiles, legal updates, inkjet and toner technology developments as well as business and marketing strategies.
Recycling Times Media, organizers of RemaxAsia Expo, the largest international aftermarket cartridge trade show in the world in Zhuhai China, have also been publishing and distributing their global Recycling Times industry magazine since 2007. Their international team of publishers, editors and writers, including many in North America, will continue to deliver their hard copy, industry news and views magazine to a significantly larger audience as a result of the purchase. Existing Recharger Magazine readers will have their current subscriptions honored for the full term with a hard copy magazine delivered to their postal addresses. Current Recharger Magazine advertisers will also be contacted to help them make arrangements to reach the new, combined, larger audience—larger in North America, as well as around the world.
Remanufacturing industry event World Expo was held in Las Vegas for 17 years and exhibitors and visitors of this event in the past will soon be advised of the details of a new event for the remanufacturing industry, organized by Recycling Times Media, to be held in North America.
Recycling Times Media will also own all the resources of the RechargerMag.com website which will gradually be relocated to the irecyclingtimes.com website which contains breaking, legal, technical and new product news, as well as a 6 minute weekly TV news bulletin.
Commenting on the sale, 1105 Media’s President and CEO, Neal Vitale, said, “We are pleased to see that this important sector of the global imaging industry will continue to be well served by the Recycling Times magazine and events. The Recharger Magazine community, 70% of whom are in North America, will continue to be able to receive news and industry information which is relevant to remanufacturers.”
David Gibbons and Tony Lee, directors of Recycling Times Media, are optimistic for the future of the industry in the Americas. They jointly declared, “Together with our excellent editors and writers, many of whom are North American, we will listen to the needs of this industry that has experienced a lot of change in the last 5 years. We want to provide a magazine, and events, that will equip it to not only survive, but thrive for years to come.”
1105 Media and Recycling Times Media will work together to ensure a smooth transition for readers, advertisers, exhibitors and visitors with their print, event and internet experiences.
