Static Control Hosts Seminar in Poland

Static Control successfully hosted a seminar in Lodz, Poland with the help of the European Toner & Inkjet Remanufacturers Association (ETIRA). In attendance were 80 delegates from the Polish remanufacturing industry.

This seminar provided Polish remanufacturers with technical demonstrations and a general market overview. It also offered discussions on clones and new chip technology, as well as the use of OEM or compatible cartridges for remanufacturing. The technical demonstrations covered some of the most popular HP, Lexmark and Samsung cartridges.

Simon Grimes, Global Sales Manager for Static Control, commented: “This was an opportunity for our Polish consumers to know us better. Through discussing the dangers of clones together, we can find a better way to protect our industry. We will also continue to bring these solutions to the market and respect the intellectual property of other manufacturers. In addition, we will meet the technological challenges from OEMs.”

Vincent van Dijk, Secretary General of ETIRA, gave a presentation on the dangers of trading clones. He said: “Static Control’s seminar in Lodz was a great event. Almost all the Polish cartridge remanufacturing industries were represented,” adding this could be expected as it was a great platform for emphasizing the dangers of trading clones.

Static Control promised it would continue to offer training, education and support to genuine remanufacturers. And the Sanford, North Carolina-based firm will be a sponsor of this year’s Focus on Europe seminar to be held in Vienna in June.

Two of the Polish companies present, Action SA and AB SA, reached a compromise with HP in January over allegations of patent infringement. A third, Black Point SA, has also been accused of infringing the OEM’s patents but is denying those allegations.
