Aftermarket supplies picked up by education institute to lower costs without quality compromise.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) has announced that its line of UW-Madison Preferred products will now begin stocking remanufactured cartridges, intended to promote institution-wide savings without compromising on quality or service.
The Administration Excellence Office Supplies team has estimated that the university stands to save approximately $4.7 million (€3.6 million) over five years “by standardising the selection of some office items, and by substituting some supplies for lower-cost alternatives”.
Education institutes have often been at the forefront of cartridge recycling and adopting aftermarket products. Western Michigan University recently celebrated its involvement in RecycleMania, a national recycling competition that saw 600 competing institutes involved in campus recycling and waste reduction schemes, and Chinese remanufacturing company MINGJIE Resources is set to expand its operations following assistance from Bayreuth University.
