With the pressure on to deliver solutions that can help customers reduce their print costs yet still ensure you make a decent margin, planitgreen, DMC Business Machines’ range of remanufactured printer supplies, offers resellers the opportunity to offer a lower cost, eco-friendly alternative to OEM consumables, with no compromise on quality or performance.
With over 20-years’ experience selling to the trade, DMC is geared to meet resellers’ needs. Trade customers benefit from their buying power, consumables inventory in warehouses in London, as well as strong links with European partners, all of which enables it to provide a fast, reliable and cost effective service.
The planitgreenrange includes premium remanufactured toner cartridges from brands including Canon, HP, Brother, Samsung, Lexmark, Kyocera, Ricoh Panasonic and Epson. The headline benefits: they cost around 30% less than OEM supplies and the yield in many cases is around 20% greater.
Quality guaranteed
Manufactured in the EU in ISO14001 and EMAS II factories, strict manufacturing processes result in a failure rate of less than 0.8% ensuring customer satisfaction.
These remanufactured supplies promise to deliver outstanding performance and print quality and as an extra layer of assurance, planitgreen cartridges come with a two-year warranty. Only virgin cartridges are used in the remanufacturing process and all working parts are replaced with new ones. Making a planitgreencartridge generates up to 2.5kg fewer CO2 emissions than an OEM original that uses as much as 16 times more material by weight. The range also carries both the Blue Angel and Nordic Swan certifications.
DMC runs a free toner collection and recycling programme that includes planitgreensupplies as well as original toners. In addition to supplying planitgreen branded recycling boxes for resellers to use at their own premises, it can also provide collections boxes for end-users with more than ten printers onsite.
CSR benefit
planitgreenalso has a compelling CSR message. DMC supports the Starlight Children’s Foundation, a charity that helps seriously and terminally ill children. For every planitgreen toner purchased, DMC donates 25 pence to the charity.
Since launch in January last year, DMC has donated almost £10,000 raised through product sales and by the staff themselves, many of whom have given up their free time to take part in sponsored events including the Windsor half marathon last October which raised over£1,200. Support is led from the top, Sales Director Damian Kelly completed a monumental 77.5 km trek across Peru. Over nine days, Damian travelled (on foot) from Choquequirao to Machu Picchu to raise over an additional £2,000 on behalf of the charity.

Over the coming year DMC have a calendar full of charity events planned in aid of Starlight Children's Foundation, employees have also pledged to take part in the Bournemouth half marathon as well as the 2014 London Marathon, in a bid to further top up the charity’s coffers.
