Wta’s Thomas Lentes added that the company’s ‘Remanufacturer of the Year’ award had made the team “very proud”, and commented that this year’s event had been “a good show, better than last year” for the remanufacturer. Lentes also mentioned that it had met “good potential contacts” during the event, and that for 2016 the company will look to “improve products” and “stay close to customers. Lalley said that Static Control had “been really busy”, and also reflected that “customers expect to see Static Control here – for us, this is an excellent opportunity to engage with them”.

Edelmeier also highlighted the on-show inks for the HP OfficeJet X, with machines on display at the company’s booth as well as a display highlighting the development in printer speeds over time. OCP also featured a picture wall, on which images of visitors holding a photo frame were stuck up after being printed at the booth, with Edelmeier pointing out that OCP wanted to something “to interact” with visitors and customers.
