The European remanufacturer will integrate PBTI’s remanufactured toner cartridge business into its European toner department.
In a press release, the two companies confirmed their agreement, with Turbon Europe GmbH confirming that it had “reached agreement” with PBT International to “integrate the PBTI remanufactured laser cartridge business into Turbon’s European toner business”.
Turbon previously partnered with Embatex earlier this year, and acquired ILG last year, with PBTI’s Xinia and private label customers informed that “this change in ownership will not result in any change in the day-to-day business execution or service levels”.
Additionally, the business will “continue to be executed from PBTI’s site at Haydon Wells” in the UK, including “system stock feeds and stock in channel automated information”. Customers will be assisted by the known sales team, with Turbon’s UK Sales Director Richard Lee and UK Key Account Manager Steve Hole supported by the Xinia customer service team.
The two companies also stated that all PBTI customers “will get access to a significantly extended product range with many new products and services”, including over 600 different SKUs of remanufactured toner cartridges, “including but not limited to a full range of Lexmark, Dell, Brother, Samsung mono and colour as well as Kyocera products”.
The press release noted that “all PBTI customers will be able to participate in Turbon’s UK-wide used cartridge collection programme”, and that inventories at the site in Haydon Wells “will be raised to enhance the already excellent delivery service PBTI is providing”.
