Industry Seminar Attracts Latvian Remanufacturers

Static Control has hosted a seminar in Riga, Latvia, with attendees from 25 companies in Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus and Estonia.

Attendees in the seminar were very interested in intellectual property protection and legal conflicts, especially the Canon® dongle gear case. Many were aware that Canon has an active patent in the Baltic region.

Joining other speakers, Vincent van Dijk, Secretary General of ETIRA, talked about patent-infringing new-build cartridges and the “dangers involved when firms sell clones”.

The session introducing the COLORCONTROL Replacement Imaging Systems also provided a highlight, including a quiz on the many advantages of the system to both end users and remanufacturers, which prompted a lot of participation among attendees.

This is one of the series seminars being held throughout Europe and Central and Western Asia this year, giving remanufacturers the opportunity to meet with Static Control’s sales and technical professionals in person, and discuss new cartridges, components, technologies and industry talking points.

Simon Grimes, Global Sales Manager for Eastern Europe, said, “Static Control is committed to the support of genuine remanufacturers in the Baltic territories, and it was a privilege to bring our seminar program here. I am confident we will experience in this region the same interest that was piqued following our seminars in Poland and Greece. We are delighted to receive the support of ETIRA to our seminar program. They continue to educate and raise awareness of the potentially dangerous practices surrounding the trade of clones and their presence is hugely educational to remanufacturers.”

Remanufacturers can attend the seminars for free. The coming seminars will be held in Italy, Croatia and the United Kingdom in July.
