Katun appoints Kuoying Wang as New CEO

April 22, 2024

Katun Corporation announces leadership transition, appointing Kuoying Wang as CEO as 30+ year veteran Robert Moore steps down.

Katun Corporation has named Kuoying Wang as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Wang, who has been with Katun since April 2021, previously served as the Chairman of the Board and General Manager of Katun Asia. He takes over from Robert Moore, who stepped down on April 12, 2024.

Wang’s expertise in the imaging industry and his prior role as COO at General Plastics Industrial Company (GPI), Katun’s parent company, equip him well for his new responsibilities. As CEO, he aims to steer Katun towards innovative growth while enhancing operational excellence and customer value. His appointment is seen as a strategic move to foster Katun’s long-standing reputation for quality and service in its global market.

Robert Moore joined Katun in 1994 as Assistant Vice President of Technical Operations and worked throughout the company, finally being appointed in February 2016 as the President and CEO of Katun Corporation, where he leveraged his extensive three-decade experience in the imaging industry to oversee the company’s operations, strategic vision, and revenue growth. His leadership cemented Katun’s status as a global leader by boosting the value delivered to their broad network of dealers, distributors, and resellers, ensuring their access to dependable, high-quality, cost-effective products.

The Katun Corporation, founded in 1979 by T. Michael Clarke and David G. Jorgensen and has grown to become a significant player in the office equipment industry, particularly in the aftermarket for imaging supplies and parts.

During the 1980s and 1990s, Katun made significant strides in product innovation and global expansion. They were pioneers in introducing products like the amorphous silicon drum and the first aftermarket positive charge OPC drum. The company also expanded its footprint by opening distribution centres in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.

In the 2000s, Katun continued to innovate with products such as PXP chemical toner and positive charge colour toners, and it received recognition, such as the Minnesota Governor’s International Trade Award in 2005. The company was acquired by Monomoy Capital Partners in 2008 and later by General Plastic Industrial Co. in 2018, which marked significant points in its corporate history.

Our take on this: The thing about Katun is that retains and nurtures its people. Just look at the number of long service awards it gives out. And everyone you talk to who is, or has, worked there for a long time is always very positive about the company and has fond memories.
