Katun Corporation Expands Their Facility
To accommodate its growth in Brazil, Katun Corporation, an aftermarket distributor of imaging supplies, photoreceptors, and parts, and a manufacturer of fuser, has announced the relocation of its operating company in São Paulo, Brazil to a significantly larger facility. The combined warehouse and office space at Katun Brazil Ltda. is now comprised of approximately 3,003 m2 (32,316 sq. ft.); approximately two-and-a-half times the size of the previous facility.
“Our first three years of operations have provided unprecedented returns and we have gained significant customer mind-share and market share with our strong copier product offerings,” said Juan Sanday, Vice President/General Manager - Latin America Operations. “Our move to this new, larger facility will uphold Katun's brand recognition as we aggressively expand into ink jet, laser printer, and fax consumables, and ensure that our growing customer base continues to receive the best possible customer service and rapid product delivery.” The move to this new facility, which has room for further expansion, demonstrates Katun's dedication to providing its Brazilian customers with complete, convenient service that is equal in every respect to the service the company provides in other major world markets.
