February 1st, 2016, Phoenix Arizona: LMI Solutions, an award winning North American manufacturer of aftermarket toner cartridges, remanufactured printers, parts and managed print infrastructure is pleased to announce a new brand licensing agreement with Eastman Kodak Company. LMI will resell its top quality laser printer cartridges under the Kodak brand through popular channels targeted at business users.
“It’s a completely different go to market model with tremendous upside with a brand name like Kodak,” stated Gary Willert, President and Chief Executive of LMI Solutions. “We believe today’s online consumers are making value driven decisions and our partnership with Kodak will deliver a top quality cartridge from a trusted brand at a lower price than the OEM cartridge.”
With eight state-of-the-art distribution centers strategically located throughout North America and the doubling of production capabilities in late 2015, LMI Solutions is well positioned to handle the increased demand.
“This is a win for both business and personal buyers,” said Bob Taylor, General Manager Electro-Photographic Systems & VP Print Systems Division at Eastman Kodak Company. “After a careful selection process, Kodak chose LMI Solutions as a partner with a proven track record of producing the highest quality in the industry, scalable operations and aligned corporate values.”
LMI Solutions and Kodak share a common commitment to reducing environmental waste through advanced recycling initiatives which will play an important part in this new partnership.
