The German company has relocated within Wuppertal to a new, larger warehouse and office.
Klaus Baumann, CEO of Compatech, told The Recycler that last year, “we took over the stock and the sales from Sensient for the desktop inks for the whole of Europe”, adding that “we stored round about 30 tonnes of ink. Now we are the exclusive European distributor for Sensient desktop inks. Our old warehouse was too small and not on the current state of technology.
“At the beginning of 2016 we agreed with Embatex AG the distribution of the brand “Emstar” for Germany. For these reasons I decided to move to a new location”. The new site is still in Wuppertal, where Compatech was previously based, and is “only three kilometres from our old site”, according to Baumann, who added that the three-year-old building’s warehouse “has 650 square metres and a height of eight metres”, while the offices have 150 square metres”.
The new location also means Compatech has “space for minimum 650 pallets”, Baumann adding that “now we have plenty of room for further growth in the coming years and the working conditions are very good”. On future plans for expansion, Baumann stated that “now we have to stabilise the new business areas, and then we have to expand them.
“Our product range now consists of: Sensient desktop inks, ink refill supplies, Compatech remanufactured ink cartridges, Compatech rebuilt toner cartridges, Emstar ink cartridges, Emstar rebuilt toner cartridges, OEM inks and toner cartridges, and hardware from Epson, Ricoh and Memjet.
“Another important point of our business is the implementation of customer brands for remanufactured ink cartridges and the rebuilt toner cartridges from Compatech. Three years ago I decided that our main focus will be the inkjet technology. This will also be in the future”.
