Reprocentre is to be the official dealer for Josero in Ireland. This is a strategic business decision on the Reprocentre’s part to strengthen the company’s product range and meet the demands of the Irish market. The past five years have been extremely difficult for the printing industry in Ireland. However, the market is showing signs of recovery and the Reprocentre has certainly seen an improvement in business this year across a number of fronts. There is more confidence in the market and some strong orders, particularly consumables, have been coming through over the past six months.
Reprocentre used Fespa in London earlier this year as an opportunity to investigate inkjet manufacturers and distributors and to determine which were the best in the market in terms of quality, reliability, product range and customer support.
Following a great deal of research, the Reprocentre team came away whole-heatedly impressed with Josero and its products. Eoin Honan, Sales Director at Reprocentre commented, “ What attracted us to Josero and Triangle inks, in particular, was the wide range of inks available for both UV and solvent systems. We know Triangle take their ink products very seriously and have large R&D facilities in the USA where every product is thoroughly tested and matched to the OEM ink before it is brought to market. The new MSS and EDX eco solvent inks are perfectly compatible with the OEM inks, as are all the other Triangle inks. We were very impressed with the Josero team, and their wealth of knowledge and experience of the market plus the level of support they provide. All in all, it was an easy decision on our part to work with them."
Reprocentre will be selling the full range of Triangle inks as well as Josero’s other products such as the bubble free applicator, laminators, refurbished superwide printers and spare parts for wide format printers.
Ink sales account for around 20% of Reprocentres sales, and with Triangle inks now on board this is expected to increase significantly over the next twelve months. Eoin continued, “We have spoken to many customers and they are happy to consider good quality, highly reliable third party inks. This will enable them to reap the benefits of substantial cost savings over OEM inks whilst maintaining the quality and level of service they currently have.”
Loic Delor, Managing Director of Josero said, “ We are delighted to be working with Reprocentre. They have a great reputation in Ireland and are well respected by printing companies. We believe by broadening their product portfolio through the Josero product range, they will strengthen their position in the Irish market. We are confident that this partnership will be a great success for both of our organizations. “
