Xerox Combats Counterfeit Printing Supplies

From the Printware Blog on Monday 17th November 2014 in News

Since Printware was founded in 1989, we have prided ourselves on providing quality products and services. We ensure that our extensive range of colour laser printers, office equipment, and printer cartridges, as well as our other products and services, are genuine and of high quality.

Recently Xerox, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of printers and printing technologies, made moves to combat the supply of counterfeit and poor quality printing materials. Counterfeit printer cartridges produce inferior quality output and can lead to damaged equipment, costing manufacturers and consumers billions of dollars a year.

The Imaging Supplies Coalition, is a non-profit organisation which works to prevent the manufacture and distribution of fraudulent printing supplies. It says that the industry is often the victim of counterfeiting because fake ink is very hard to distinguish from the real thing until it’s too late. In response to this problem, Xerox has founded a specialist team to ensure the quality of Xerox products and to help prevent the spread of counterfeit goods.

According to Xerox, its recent counterfeit prevention efforts include:

“The confiscation of more than 1,500 boxes of fake toner cartridges that looked like authentic Xerox products from Zhuhai Warmth Electronic Co. Ltd.; a compatible manufacturer in China. A cease-and-desist action forbids the company from using fake packaging. An identical action was brought against Zhuhai Supricolor Image Co., Ltd., in China, which is linked to Zhuhai Warmth.

“Two organised raids in Brazil – including one in Maringa where more than 1,000 counterfeit boxes of Xerox-branded toner cartridges and authentication labels were confiscated by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). In Londrina, Xerox, along with other OEMs, seized more than 1,800 boxes of counterfeit Xerox products, including security labels and product identification materials.

“The confiscation of nearly 1,000 boxes of Xerox counterfeit products in Turkey; the raid was conducted on behalf of Xerox and other OEMs.

“The conviction of a Baltimore man sentenced for 26 years for stealing and selling $55,000 worth of Xerox consumables.”

Printware has enjoyed a long and productive relationship with Xerox and we have a wide range of Xerox printers and supplies available, including the new ColorQube 8580.
