Cartridge World and Static Control Announce Strategic Partnership

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cartridge World has announced a partnership agreement with Static
Control Components. Under the agreement, Static Control becomes an
Approved Supplier of non-branded imaging products to the global
Cartridge World network.

The move recognizes the almost universal use of Static Control products
within the Cartridge World network, and brings all franchisees back into

Cartridge World’s Global CEO Steve Weedon is excited for the opportunity
the two companies can provide by working together.

Weedon said, “A similar deal should have been chiseled out years ago for
the benefit of franchisees and the network. Unfortunately, for whatever
reason, it was never deemed possible. Our industry requires bold new
thinking and strategic partnerships to evolve. I am very proud to have
been able to bring Static Control officially into our network. I give
Static Control President Bill Swartz the credit for seeing the
opportunities and huge potential the new Cartridge World offers. We have
a strong vision and direction for our future and Static Control will be
an integral part of that future.”

Static Control is the largest manufacturer of aftermarket imaging
systems and components for the laser and ink jet industry. Having spent
18 years with the company, Weedon stated it was “good to be working with
my former colleagues again. I have the highest regard for their
technical ability and expertise.”

Static Control’s headquarters and global distribution center is located
in Sanford, North Carolina, USA. It was acquired in 2015 by Apex
Microelectronics of Zhuhai, China. The combined resources of the
companies provide unmatched capabilities to bring solutions to market by
keeping pace with ever-evolving OEM technologies and innovations.

Cartridge World was acquired by China-based Suzhou Goldengreen
Technologies (SGT) in 2015. SGT is the largest Organic Photoconductor
(OPC) manufacturer and supplier to the aftermarket, manufacturing 90
million units a year.

Cartridge Word will be exhibiting with Static Control products at the
upcoming International Franchise Exhibition in New York in June.
