Katun Expands into OEM-Compatible Toner for Color Copiers and Multifunction Devices
MINNEAPOLIS - Katun Corporation has unveiled plans for a significant expansion of its product portfolio supporting color copiers and multi-function devices -- with the first of a new line of color toner products slated for introduction later this year. The company also expects to expand its line of other parts and supplies for color machines.
In November, Katun introduced Katun Performance brand color toners for the Ricoh Aficio 2228C/2232C/2238C series of digital copier/printers, which will be followed in coming months by color toners for some of today’s most popular machines from Ricoh, Canon, Konica Minolta, and Toshiba. Like most Katun products, the new color toner products will offer proven, tested OEM compatibility at significant savings compared to OEM-branded products.
“We’re going to offer color toner customers and their end users a proven alternative that will help them reduce their cost per page,” said Carlyle Singer, president and CEO. “With color output increasing every year and customers demanding high-quality color in office applications, the time is right to expand our commitment to this growing market. We’re pleased to offer color toner customers a compelling choice from a trusted brand.”
Katun’s team of chemists, engineers, technicians and other specialists have recently added new capabilities and equipment at the company’s 90,000 square foot Research and Development Testing Facility, enabling the company to apply stringent and comprehensive tests for quality, yields, compatibility and other important color toner product performance attributes. Given the complexity of the color xerography process, the company expects this rigorous approach to quality to be a key advantage in this marketplace.
