New PRP figures condemn clones

June 6, 2018

PRP Solutions has appointed two new Heads of Sales and Marketing, with both immediately condemning “disreputable clones.”

Manuel Pereira and Reinder Dijkstra, who are described as having “considerable experience in the field of marketing” and being “well versed in the sales area of printing” respectively, have joined the company, and immediately issued a statement decrying the “irresponsible” clone manufacturers that PRP Solutions is seeking to distance itself from.

“My number one priority is to make sure that the market understands the clear differences between the irresponsible manufacturers of clone products and an operation with strong principles and engineering integrity like PRP Solutions,” stated Pereira. “I worry that because OEMs often seem to be critical of the entire new-build part of the market, customers may be led into believing their only safe and sound option is to purchase OEM cartridges.”

Reiner Dijkstra, Pereira’s colleague and joint Head of Sales and Marketing, added: “It is clear that PRP Solutions provides a reliable, IP-safe and cost-effective alternative. We belong to a group of manufacturers that does not wildly copy originals but fights for its place in the market through its own design excellence. Exactly the same level of IP protection is applied to our new-build products as is applied to the remanufactured part of our range.”

“We completely respect the intellectual property of OEMs, but, based on the strength of our own ideas and engineering solutions, we can offer cheaper alternative products that deliver a great business proposition to everyone involved in the process chain,” continued Pereira. “To us it is unacceptable if patents are not respected, and in this way we are completely in accord with OEMs. Like them, we welcome legal action being taken against the ‘copycat manufacturers’ who create an unsafe buying environment for uninformed businesses across Europe.”

Print-Rite, PRP Solutions’ manufacturing partner, currently holds over 2,700 patents across the world for engineering solutions.
