Static Control Opens New Distribution Center in Texas
Static Control Components of Sanford, North Carolina, which makes third-party toner and ink cartridges and components, reported on April 30th that it’s opened a new distribution center in Wilmer, Texas. Wilmer is 14 miles from downtown Dallas, and is said to be ideally located within a hub of Static Control customers. The distribution center brings one-day delivery to customers throughout Texas, Oklahoma, and regions of Arkansas, Kansas, and Louisiana.
Bryan Bonacum, vice president of North American Sales at Static Control commented: “This new warehouse will help us continue to expand throughout the region. Our ability to deliver our high-quality cartridges in one day was essential for growth. This is also a significant benefit to our existing customers in the area.”
Static Control also said that it’ll be adding additional distribution locations in the United States before the end of the year.
“An important goal at Static Control is to make doing business with us as easy as possible. One way we are doing that is by increasing our service levels though faster delivery times,” said Bonacum. “We are steadily expanding our operations here in the U.S. and worldwide to provide the best service to our customers.”
Earlier this year, Canon Inc. of Tokyo, Japan; Canon U.S.A. of Melville, New York; and Canon Virginia of Newport News, Virginia, submitted a patent-infringement complaint to the U.S. International Trace Commission and requested that the ITC issue a general exclusion order and cease-and-desist orders against some 50 companies – including Static Control – alleging that the toner cartridges and drums sold by these companies are violating Canon patents.
Canon has also filed a patent-infringement lawsuit against Static Control, which says it’s the world’s largest manufacturer and distributor of parts and supplies supporting the toner remanufacturing industry.
