RIS and Migros France launch first InkCenter

July 7, 2020

Retail Inkjet Solutions (RIS) and supermarket retailer Migros France announced the launch of the inkjet cartridge refill service at the Migros retail location in Thoiry, France. 

Customers are now able to reuse and refill their empty inkjet cartridges while they shop by dropping them off with a service team member at the InkCenter located within the hypermarket store.

“We have seen continuous engagement with and success from our ink refill services in France over the past several years. Partnering with Migros France allows us to reach an even larger customer base that will now have access to a convenient and affordable way to refill their ink cartridges, while also reducing single-use plastic,” said David Lenny, President and CEO of RIS. “Cost-efficiency is of particular importance during this pandemic, so we are pleased to have a strong partner in Migros as we work towards bringing affordable, high-quality ink and print clarity to consumers.”

This new partnership sets another milestone for RIS as part of its ongoing strategy to expand into the European market and to make the “Ink Bar” services readily available to shoppers there.

Vincent Hormovitis, Vice President of Sales & Business Development at RIS, said: “Joining forces with Migros France in the installation of our InkCenter has been a significant step towards offering customers a more comprehensive and environmentally-friendly shopping experience in these trying times. As consumers and students alike are still urged to work from home in many places and are turning to their home printers, Migros understands the necessity of offering an economical solution for refilling inkjet cartridges.”

“The RIS InkCenter concept grabbed us immediately. It completely dovetails with our business strategy by offering our customers an environmentally responsible service that makes an economical addition to our existing inkjet cartridge range and is in line with our constant search for innovative products and services. We are certain that our customers will be very happy with this new service. We would like to thank the RIS sales, communication and IT teams who have so efficiently supported us in setting up this project,” said Christel Tardy, Head of Non-Food at Migros France.
