Reeq’s goal is to design and manufacture high-quality and efficient equipment for the ink cartridge refill industry. Equipment that boosts the turnover and profit of our customers.
Our focus is on medium and large production processes. That said, our machines can also be a good first step for smaller companies towards more efficient and high-quality production for smaller production companies.
We help our customers to make the remanufacturing process as good and efficient as possible. We do this by supplying high efficient machines tailored to the process.
In 1979 the Dutchman Ad Lansink introduced a system of how we should look at products when they have reached the end of their life cycle. This system was given the name “The ladder of Lansink” and is still current, certainly within Europe.
This holistic approach to waste management is the impetus of the Waste Framework Directive (WFD), a European Union directive that seeks to establish a long-term path towards sustainable waste management.
The recycling programs of most original cartridge manufacturers consist of destroying the cartridges and using the resulting raw material flow for new cartridges. This is downcycling.
Cartridge refillers use the empty cartridge without breaking it and refill it with more ink than was originally in it. In this way they create greater value than the original. This is a way of upcycling.
