The new company is based in picturesque Marlow, Buckinghamshire. “Cartridge World HQ (UK) Limited are extremely excited by the opportunities of Cartridge World and its vision and leadership”. Says Paul Callow. “The pace of change since the acquisition in 2015 has been staggering and already a Global Procurement Center in Zhuhai has been established to ensure we have consistently high product quality at the right price and is IP assured. This is the bedrock foundation that will build on our existing customer base and breath confidence throughout the UK network for our future”.
