Supplies Network: Toshiba


Saint Louis, MO – APRIL 17, 2013: Supplies Network, the leading provider of Managed Print Services, Hardware and IT consumables in the United States, is excited to announce it will now become a distributor for Toshiba’s e-STUDIO A3 and A4 multifunction products (MFPs), accessories and supplies.

Under terms of the agreement, Supplies Network can begin offering Toshiba equipment and supplies to Authorized Toshiba Dealers and will establish a network of Toshiba Business Product Centers (TBPCs) as an exclusive customer base for hardware, supplies and accessories. Supplies Network will also provide ongoing “after-sale” technical support to the TBPC channel with service technicians trained by Toshiba America Business Solutions.

This new agreement will complement Supplies Network’s existing partnership with Toshiba and its’ authorized dealers in the MPS sector with Toshiba’s Encompass program. The collaborative engagement will also provide channel and product expansion for independent resellers looking for new A3 and A4 equipment to be sold into MPS environments that otherwise wouldn’t have access to this technology.

“We are excited to partner with Toshiba America Business Solutions and expand our hardware presence in the United States,” said Monte White, Vice President of Product Marketing at Supplies Network. “I’m confident this expanded partnership will provide benefits for Toshiba, Supplies Network and all of the reseller partners we work with.”

“By adding Supplies Network to our existing distributor channel, we are able to expand the support of our Toshiba Business Products Center partners and other authorized dealers by outfitting these companies with an array of robust A3 and A4 imaging devices,” said Tom Walter, director, aftermarket sales, marketing and operations at Toshiba America Business Solutions.  “In turn, our sales partners are now able to transition their small-to-medium sized business users from lower-performing printing devices to top-shelf MFPs to further enhance their customers’ return on investment.”
