The Japanese giant has announced it will cease production from March next year.
Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation has announced it will no longer play a part in the pulverisation toner industry. In a letter seen by The Recycler, Teruyuki Mitsumori, the General Manager of MCC’s Imaging Materials department, confirmed that it will “withdraw from the manufacturing business of pulverisation toner” at the end of March 2019.
Between now and then, the company will oversee a phased pullback from the operation, which will be “managed to decline gradually” as of this month.
The decision marks the end of nearly forty-five years of production for MCC, which has been manufacturing pulverised toner since 1975. The company will continue to manufacture chemical toner.
