As with many Councils around the UK and Ireland, Dublin City Council has faced major challenges in recent months trying to make cost savings whilst maintaining quality. After some consideration it has installed Triangle Inks’ Digital Mild Solvent inks in its Roland Versacamm.
Dublin City Council realised that there were big savings to be made on ink cartridges by switching to Triangle Inks but its main priority was to ensure the quality it was getting from its original Roland cartridges was met. Josero, the sole distributor in the UK and Ireland of Triangle inks and its local dealer in Ireland, Trimwel Ltd, worked with the City Council to carry out rigorous tests to make sure the quality was up to standard.
Nick Little, Sales Director for Trimwel said, “We knew the quality would not be an issue as we have installed Triangle inks in many Rolands, Mimakis and Mutohs over the past year and we know our customer base is very happy. What we were really impressed with was the support from Josero. They sent their Director of Sales to Ireland to work with the Council to ensure everything ran smoothly and to manage the changeover. Triangle Inks has a simple approach to the way it sells its inks all over the world, which is quality at a competitive price. Trimwel has taken this approach and Dublin City Council is now making savings of 40%."
Triangle Inks became a REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of CHemicals) pre-registered Green Business in April 2008. REACH Certification will become compulsory for all ink manufacturers in 2012 and this certification will ensure that all certified comply with strict rules to make sure their inks are environmentally friendly.
Director of Sales at Josero, Gareth McDonald, commented, “We’re delighted that Triangle inks has helped Dublin City Council to save money and hope that others will see the benefit of switching to a quality alternative ink supplier who will match the reliability and service provided by OEMs, whilst offering significant cost savings.”
