Digital Imaging (German) reported on the deal, which will see Compatech provide “Emstar brand toner and inks […] from a single source” in Germany to trade customers. The two companies “recently signed a distribution agreement”, and Compatech will “with immediate effect” distribute Embatex’ Emstar products, with the news site noting that the deal is a “good complement to Compatech’s own brand” and products.
Last May, Compatech was named as Sensient’s European distributor for desktop inks, and CompaTech has been distributing Sensient products “aimed at refilling desktop cartridges” in Germany since 2007, having “developed a strong network” there. It also signed an agreement with Memjet two years ago to distribute its machines in Germany, including the C6010 and C6030 MFP.
Embatex meanwhile was acquired by fellow remanufacturer Turbon last October, after the two companies announced in 2014 that they would be partnering in Europe, specifically in terms of research and development as well as toner cartridge remanufacturing. Christian Wernhart continues as CEO of Embatex and there are no plans to combine the two remanufacturing companies’ sales efforts.
