    Toner Warehouse gets official Epson stamp
    (AUSTRALIA’S TONER WAREHOUSE  NOT THE U.S. TONER WAREHOUSE)

    NSW-based consumables specialist, Toner Warehouse, is the latest Gold
    Seal distributor to be added to Epson Australia’s books.
    Toner
    Warehouse business development manager, Nigel Baker, said the business
    had traditionally imported the vendor’s printer consumables, but had
    now grown to a stage where it made better sense to deal with Epson
    locally.
    “While we always dealt with reliable sources and were never
    caught out by anything we brought in, there are advantages to dealing
    with Epson here,” he said. “We get greater access to product, a more
    reliable source for product and we don’t have to pay upfront, either.
    This offsets any benefit we might get from the grey market.”
    Epson
    marketing director, Mike Pleasants, said: “Toner Warehouse came to us
    wanting to be a national consumables distributor,” he said. “Gold Seal
    authorises and approves consumable distributors and when resellers go
    to one, they know they will get the product that is guaranteed.”
    Epson
    currently lists 11 Gold Seal disties on its books, including Ingram
    Micro, Synnex, Dicker Data and JTC Tasmania. Pleasants said there were
    no immediate plans to add more into the program.
    “At this moment
    we’re at a pause,” he said. “We will sit back and see how this strategy
    works and ensure our distributors are securing enough business between
    themselves without over distributing. We’ll review it in a few months
    time.”
    Epson famously revoked Digiland’s membership to Gold Seal via
    a public advertising campaign in late 2002 after the distributor was
    found to be parallel importing Epson cartridges from Malaysia and
    selling them at reduced rates.
    Toner Warehouse also distributes
    consumables from brands including Canon, Lexmark, Brother, HP and Oki.
    Baker indicated that this still included importing product in some
    instances, in addition to buying from vendors locally.
