Sharp Expands Partnership with Clover, Enables Dealers to Combine Sharp and Clover Supplies on Same Invoice
Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA) reports that it’s expanding its partnership with Clover Technologies Group, a global printer-cartridge remanufacturer, as well as a leading empty toner-cartridge collector and provider of solutions and parts for the digital-imaging market. Sharp says the alliance represents an expansion of the existing relationship between the two companies to deliver greater value and service to Sharp customers.
“This new relationship will provide our dealers with a unique opportunity to combine third-party toner on the same invoice as Sharp hardware and supplies,” explained Mike Marusic, senior vice president for marketing, operations and service for SIICA. “Dealers that have a managed print services (MPS) program will now be able to have their third-party toner drop shipped directly to their customers, which will save a ton of time, money and resources.”
Clover is a top distributor of remanufactured toner and inkjet cartridges, and has over $1.2 billion in annual revenue. It has distribution centers located in the United States, and is able to provide ground shipping to 95 percent of the country in one to two days. It also has 60 locations worldwide. Its toner- and ink cartridges are available through office-product distributors and resellers, and are marketed under various private-label brands.
“Through this partnership we are emphasizing our ongoing commitment to customer service while highlighting our quality products and leadership in the imaging supplies industry,” commented Ron Petrucci, senior vice president of Business Development for Clover Technologies Group.
