Programme will now include an autumn series of events, following its popularity throughout this year.

The largest manufacturer of aftermarket imaging systems and components announced that it has expanded its seminar programme to include 12 further events, following the success of the company’s 22 previous seminars that have been held at various locations across Europe and Western Asia since April.

The autumn series of seminars began on 19 September in Zagreb, Croatia, with another seminar taking place today (23 September) in Belgrade, Serbia. Further events are planned to take place in Slovenia, Bosnia, Hungary, Germany, Belarus, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, Spain and Portugal; with all events being free of charge for Static Control customers.

As with previous events, the autumn seminars run for a full day and include presentations delivered by ETIRA and representatives from OEMs, as well as a commercial presentation concerning recent market data, forecasts on what’s next for the industry, and any other technical issues common to that region. Furthermore, a “comprehensive” presentation of Static Control’s COLORCONTROL Imaging Replacement Systems is delivered to attendees, explaining the opportunity, the selling strategy and the range of tools and resources provided by the company.

Attendees also benefit from remanufacturing demonstrations delivered by technicians, covering printer cartridges that are relevant to the specific region’s remanufacturers; with a Q&A session offering them the opportunity to put any questions to the Static Control staff and guest speakers.

Ken Lalley, Sales Director at Static Control, commented: “All of the guest speakers have shared valuable knowledge and we look forward to what timely information will be given throughout the autumn series. In particular, the issue of clones in the marketplace has come up as a common theme that clearly affects everyone. This in turn has highlighted how important it is that all corners of the industry cooperate to combat the problem – including the OEMs.”

For Static Control’s customers, the events have introduced new products and services. As Maciej Sianos, Static Control’s Unit Business Manager for Poland, noted after a session in Lodz: “The recently re-launched website and the upgrade of our e-commerce system in Europe, which features 24/7 online ordering capabilities, was great news for attendees. Many customers were also happy to learn of our wide range of Kyocera products, as this has proven to be a difficult sector for the aftermarket to gain market share.”

The Recycler has reported on a number of earlier seminars hosted by Static Control this year, including events in Italy, Latvia, ParisRomania, Poland, and Greece.
