West Point Products Releases 4 Additional Bio-Based SKUs Under AgriTone Brand
Valley Grove, WV /Gananoque, ON (Dec. 2009) - West Point Products, a leading
manufacturer of premium replacement imaging supplies and provider of related
services, has announced the release of four additional SKUs under its AgriTone
brand of premium replacement toner cartridges containing bio-content. Included
in the new release are the HP LaserJet 1010/1012 series, the high yield versions
of cartridges for the HP LaserJet 1200, and the HP LaserJet 1300 series of
printers. The HP LaserJet 1200 cartridge is also available in a regular yield
version. All of these cartridges have passed West Point Products' stringent
quality testing, conducted according to STMC standards in the company's ISO 9001
registered facility in Valley Grove, WV.
West Point Products initially launched its line of AgriTone premium replacement toner cartridges in late August, releasing five SKUs designed for workgroup printers. This most recent release expands the AgriTone line to include smaller workgroup printers by HP.
"We are pleased with the progress we have made in expanding the AgriTone line of cartridges so quickly after the initial launch," stated Joe Lucot, West Point Products' President and COO, "Maintaining both the quality of the product and the amount of bio-content adds a degree of complexity to the development of this product line. Our ability to rise to that challenge is reflective of our commitment to our customers. Our dealers and resellers have come to expect a certain level of quality from West Point Products, and we are confident in our ability to deliver on that expectation every day."
"Our early experiences with the success of AgriTone have confirmed to us that there is a great deal of opportunity for this type of eco-friendly product," added Tom Day, CEO, "Our initial launch of AgriTone allowed us and our dealers to address the needs of environmentally conscientious users of workgroup printers. Now, with this additional launch, we are able to address the needs of an even wider audience, making the opportunity for our dealers that much greater. We are excited about what the future holds for the AgriTone line of cartridges."
AgriTone cartridges contain BioBlack, a patent-pending toner containing the highest proportion of bio-content available on the market today as verified by third-party testing. The cartridges perform to the same quality standards that customers have come to expect from West Point Products, while using toner containing 35+% bio-content.
