About the RemaxWorld Expo

The RemaxWorld Expo is, by far, the largest industry event in the world for businesses and individual dealers involved in the print consumables industry. The event has been held annually in Zhuhai, China since 2007. The city was chosen because it is the capital of print consumables.

The show is attended by new build cartridge producers, remanufacturers and OEMs from all over the world. The RemaxWorld Expo is spread across 74 acres of the show floor with over 450 exhibitors and over 15,000 attendees from 104 countries around the world.

LD Products was selected to receive the award by a panel of 16 judges chosen from around the globe. It is the first time in the event’s 12-year history that a new build cartridge series has won this prestigious award over remanufacturers.

“Winning this award sends a clear message to dealers that they now have a proven quality alternative to OEM and remanufactured products” stated Christian Pepper, President, LD Products Channel Partner Division.

LD Products Gold Line Series

This award brings recognition to LD Products Gold Line Series of print cartridges. They are a commercial-grade, non-infringing new build cartridge sold exclusively through imaging dealers. Dealers enjoy selling a product that is a step up in quality and offer dealers a bigger margin over leading remanufactured cartridges.

LD’s Gold Line is tested and monitored for page yield and performance quality, and every cartridge comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Each Gold Line Cartridge is backed by a lifetime guarantee that includes indemnification against USA IP/Patent infringement.

The premium quality standards of LD Gold Line cartridges are well documented. 2019 BLI Lab test results and many public testimonials from North America’s leading dealers, along with boasting the industry’s lowest return rate, exemplify the strong demand for the product.

In an industry that is seeing consolidation and declining performance from OEM and remanufactured cartridge leaders, dealers now have a strong choice with the LD Gold Line Series of premium built print cartridges.

2 Big Reasons Why HP is going to have to Raise Prices

150 150 LD Products

The ink and toner business is changing, and changing rapidly. The market is shifting and the big players are adjusting their strategy to try to retain the market share they’re rapidly losing to rivals offering less expensive ink and toner cartridges.

For years the printer industry traditionally sold hardware at a loss with the true profit being generated by the sale of consumables over the life of ownership, much like the razor industry. Sell the razors inexpensively, and charge more for the consumables, in this case the blades.

Today, however, the balance of power has shifted as the quality of compatible and remanufactured cartridges have improved and prices have dropped.

HP has announced that it is going to try a new business model to compensate for the loss in supplies revenue, but this shift is going to mean an increase in price, affecting the businesses of printer dealers, toner resellers, and Managed Print providers.

Two Big Reasons HP is Changing Course (and Raising Prices)

The two major reasons HP is changing its business model are the prevalence of good quality aftermarket third-party toner options for consumers, and the fact that they can no longer afford to lose money on hardware because their business model is no longer working.

HP’s approach to this market shift is to offer two types of New printers.  One that is cheaper to buy up front, but which can only use OEM consumables and the second is more expensive to buy, but which is unlocked so that aftermarket supplies can be utilized.  HP has already been trying to change its hardware model by launching  the Smart Tank and Neverstop printers which come fully loaded with an estimated two-year supply of ink or toner.

Tuan Tran, incoming HP President told an analyst meeting that HP is trying to “rebalance the system profitability, capturing more profit upfront. This model is for customers who want to exclusively buy HP printers and supplies. Customers will get a model that delivers a more secure, reliable, higher quality, and sustainable print experience,” he continued.

However, Toni Sacconaghi, tech watcher at Bernstein isn’t so confident, suggesting that HP may be left with uncompetitively priced hardware if their competitors don’t follow suit. He says “it’s not clear if HP will be better off financially.”

The Takeaway…

Other major manufacturers will be watching to see the results of this shift in strategy. Dealers and resellers need to be aware of how HP’s price increases and shift in technology will impact their existing businesses as it is likely that they may choose or end up with the lower priced hardware locked to OEM consumables in their new and fleet in place agreeements.

Partnering with aftermarket manufacturers like LD Products, producers of the Gold Line Series of toner cartridges (a brand-new disruptive line of premium quality, non-infringing, new build cartridges) can help them stay competitive.

LD recently tested their Gold Line cartridges against HP OEM cartridges and the results showed that the quality and performance were nearly identical. The obvious difference was that the LD extended yield cartridges cost about 70% less in a formal test. The best part is that dealers and resellers can save up to 20% over other leading remanufactured cartridge brands.

Industry First: New Build GOLD Line Cartridges from LD Products Receive Positive Independent 3rd Party Testing Results from Buyers Lab

1920 600 LD Products

Thursday April 18th 2019 – The Channel Partner Division of consumable giant LD Products is pleased to announce that they have just received official Buyers Lab (BLI) Test Results on two very popular laser printer series used in MPS environments. The LD team plans to release the test results to dealers at the industry’s largest trade show, ITEX, coming up on April 24th and 25th in Las Vegas.

“This 3rd party testing is ground breaking in the Aftermarket, as previously only one Remanufacturer (Clover) has ever published the results of BLI Independent testing.  We already know how well our GOLD Line performs in our Lab, having recently published a series of testimonials from leading dealers as to the results they saw in their fleets, and now we have irrefutable data of how our cartridges performed against OEM in a head to head test by the industry’s leading 3rd party testing organization,” stated Christian Pepper, President of the LD Products Channel Partner Division. “This report further positions the LD Gold Line as a clear leader in the aftermarket supplies industry and we are excited to share the results of BLI’s testing with our customers.

 “Dealers know and trust BLI’s extensive testing methodology and, to our knowledge, this is the first time that any new-build or extended yield cartridges have successfully completed BLI’s testing. Now that we have these reports, we’re excited to refute the misleading claims made by OEMs and remanufacturers with fact-based information about how well our GOLD Line new-build cartridges perform in both reliability and yield attainment,” added Matt Daniel, VP Product Development.

To complete the testing objectively and from a true end user perspective, BLI confidentially sourced print cartridges from dealers throughout Q1 2019 and compared them to the genuine OEM cartridges. The process of evaluation took one month, with devices running at accelerated volumes and using an industry standard target, to accurately compare the cartridges on print quality, yield and overall value.

A sample of the BLI Comparative Toner Cartridge Performance Evaluation findings is provided here with more details available at the ITEX Show and on the GOLD Line Website.

9,000-page LD Gold CF226X Toner Cartridges vs. Original HP CF226X Toner Cartridges
  • “LD Gold Line cartridges produced good overall quality. Solids from the LD Gold Line toner were darker and richer than those produced by HP.”
  • “All LD Gold Line cartridges tested operated reliably, completing testing with no malfunctions, and they surpassed their rated yields”
  • “LD Gold Line cartridges offer a significantly lower cost of ownership (than OEM)”
  • Across all BLI Tests HP OEM scored 4.08 and GOLD Line 3.81 out of a possible 5.
40,000-page LD Gold CF281X Extended-Yield Toner Cartridges vs. 25,000 page Original HP CF281X Toner Cartridges
  • “The LD Gold Line extended yield cartridges, which have a rated yield of 40,000 pages, surpassed their rated yield by 16% (Averaging 46,507 pages)
  • “Buyers Lab calculates that the LD GOLD Line Extended yield toner would be about a third of the cost of genuine cartridges when printing 15,000 pages per month over a five-year period.”
  • Across all BLI Tests, HP OEM scored 4.17 and GOLD Line 3.93 out of a possible 5.

In 2018, LD Products achieved the industry’s lowest return rate of 0.1% and in Q1 2019, released a new dealer testimonial page with rave reviews from many of the nation’s most prominent dealers.

LD Products believes the new BLI Report will provide dealers with further education and validation on the compelling need to rethink their toner strategy. Based on dealer feedback, the new LD GOLD Line of premium quality new build cartridges is a step up in quality over the leading remanufactured cartridges for up to 70% less than OEM toner prices.

To learn more about the new Buyers Lab Test Results, interested dealers are asked to visit the LD Products Channel Partner website, stop by the LD booth at the upcoming ITEX Show or speak to an LD Channel Partner representative.

150 150 LD Products

LD Channel Partner Division recently traveled to Zhuhai, China to participate in the RemaxWorld Summit to debate the popular hot topic of Reman vs. New Build toner cartridges. Represented by LD’s Channel Partner Division President Christian Pepper, the argument was made for why the motion of new build cartridges should become the preferred aftermarket business model going forward. To support the case, Christian argued that the financial performance of the aftermarket companies and the criteria upon customers make buying decisions ultimately showcase why New Build is the solution over Reman cartridges. Watch the video below:

To support the case presented by Christian Pepper at the RemaxWorld Summit, LD Channel Partner Division has recently launched the Gold Line Cartridge Challenge to showcase the real differences between Reman vs. New Build with supporting and factual based evidence.
