Over the past 6 years, United Copiers has revolutionized the Southern African Office Printing Solutions market with its unique Remanufactured Office Printer offering. “The offering is actually fairly straightforward to explain”, says Ryan Lumley, Managing Director of United Copiers. “We carefully select from tens of thousands of demo model and low usage off lease office copiers sourced in Europe and around the world. Beforehand, we have carefully pre-determined only the photocopier model ranges we know for their reliability, robustness and low monthly running costs.
These devices are then fully refurbished and put through a 37-point quality control check, before entering our supply chain for sale. At the end of the day, we supply South African businesses with a world class, reliable product, at the fraction of the price of new. To ensure peace of mind every device is under a full swop out warranty when signed to a Service Level agreement. The final cherry on the top for our clients is that these are effectively Green printing systems, ensuring first the customer benefits and then the environment.”
By remanufacturing office photocopiers, United Copiers has been able to renew these devices for the next commercial cycle thereby removing the need to draw on additional materials including; single use plastics, lead, various toxic chemicals, steel and microprocessors during the manufacture of a new device, this effectively eliminates the carbon footprint of the device and greatly reduces global E-Waste.
In addition to the Environmental Photocopier offering, United Copiers supplies environmentally friendly Remanufactured Toners and Imaging Drums to accompany all devices. By recycling perfectly conditioned toner cartridges, the company is able to fully renew the plastic cartridges and massively reduce the production and disposal of single use plastics. Remanufactured toners not only benefit the environment, but also pass significant savings onto clients with no compromise on toner quality. “First and foremost, customers want a highly reliable, cost effective product, if you set out to build this product offering solely with the intention of telling people it is environmentally friendly, it would have failed. Fortunately, we have been able to create an offering which solves our clients Managed Print requirements thoroughly, and then a happy by-product of this, is the fact that we are assisting in reducing E-Waste while solving their budgetary and operational needs”, says Candice Evans, Marketing Coordinator of United Copiers.
All United Copier’s remanufactured devices are available for rental or cash purchase and come with a comprehensive Service Level Agreement, ensuring that clients print and copy environment runs seamlessly. To date, thousands of South African businesses have found cost savings and improved running costs through our remanufactured Office Printer program.
Remanufactured Office Photocopiers are not the only revolution United Copiers has brought into the South African Managed Print Environment, our online purchasing portal www.onlinecopiers.co.za gives all South African businesses access to transparent pricing on over 200 Business Printers and Multifunction Photocopiers, both new and remanufactured as well as their related consumables. “The industry has a poor reputation for transparency, United Copiers allows us to try to present the customer a clear picture of what is available for their business at a fair price,” says Ryan Lumley, Managing Director of United Copiers.
