One of the biggest expenses in an office is the outlay required for copying and printing. Original manufacturer’s parts and supplies tend to be the most expensive, which is why many companies look for cheaper alternatives. Competition is intense, and there is also added pressure on suppliers as the effects of the paperless office are being felt on their trade. The American company Katun Corporation is one of the leading suppliers of OEM-compatible aftermarket supplies and parts for photocopiers and printers. Katun EDC B.V. is responsible for sales in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
