Still in the remanufacturing business after 28 years.

At the beginning of October Mumbai-based Insta Impex Private Limited was struck off the Register of Companies. The company, founded in 1989, was a pioneer of the ink and toner remanufacturing industry in India, and were known for manufacturing and exporting inkjet refilling equipment and printing inks, as well as providing IT services. We caught up with Harish Lalwani, one of the Insta Impex owners and directors who told The Recycler “I am [still] doing the cartridge recycling business more aggressively around 2000 cartridges a month under the brand name of Instafill, with same quality standards,  my company is STMC certified.”

“It is great to see one of India’s market pioneers still very active in the market,” David Connett, Creative Partner at Connett & Unland GbR, said. “Their walk-in refill concept shop was a first in the Indian market and was quickly copied by many others in India and around the world. In 2006, they were the first company in India to achieve ASTM accreditation and worked hard and diligently to promote remanufacturing. In recent years the Indian market has changed and, while always competitive, there are still opportunities to compete against low-cost imports, even in India.”

The strike off of Insta Impex Private Limited followed a reorganisation of the business between the owners and the company and came three years since its last Annual General Meeting, and declared by the Registrar of Companies, Mumbai.
