The two companies announced their European “cooperation” as a “long-term agreement” corresponding to research and development as well as “production of recycled laser toner cartridges”, with both companies looking to “cooperate closely” on cartridge development and product certification.

As part of the agreement, and due to Embatex’s need to “preserve cost competitiveness”, Embatex’s management has decided to “transition” its toner cartridge remanufacturing from Feldkirchen in Austria to Oltenita in Romania, which has been in operation for “more than a decade” and is said to be “cost-efficient”. The transition will be “trouble-free” and take place in the third quarter of this year, with all inkjet remanufacturing, research and development to continue in Feldkirchen.turbon logo

The two remanufacturers added that they “do not plan to merge their sales activities”, and will “in the future act separately and with different sales teams in their respective markets”, which as a result means both companies will “utilise the benefits from the cooperation” alongside a “broader and deeper product assortment, improved services and a more competitive cost structure”.

Embatex recently revealed that it was making 50 employees redundant at the base in Feldkirchen, whilst last December Turbon acquired US company ILG.
