Cartridge World Leads Movement to Improve Global Print Quality Standards

New Global Procurement Center Ensures Superior, Cost-Effective Products for End User

MCHENRY, Ill. - January 14, 2016  - (BUSINESS WIRE) - With the ink barely dry following this summer’s sale of Cartridge World to Suzhou GoldenGreen Technologies (SGT) – the largest OPC manufacturer in the world – a large-scale effort is underway to guarantee the quality of affordable printer cartridges for consumers and business owners.

Spearheading the initiative is Steve Weedon, the new Global CEO of Cartridge World, the leading retail franchise of ink and toner, printers and other printing products and services. Weedon’s first step to enhance the quality of Cartridge World products was the launch of the Cartridge World Global Procurement Center in China, where a team of quality assurance specialists are charged with sourcing and testing products through a newly implemented “triple check” before being shipped.

“The new procurement center sets the industry standard for world-class quality assurance procedures for printer cartridges,” Weedon said. “As a result, franchisees in the Cartridge World system will receive superior quality products to retain their consumer and small business customers, while still maintaining a significant cost savings over competitors.”
