Cartridge World franchisees open third outlet

Cartridge World franchisees have expanded their franchise portfolio with the opening of their third outlet. Business partners Mike Hudson and Ian Calveley have opened their third Cartridge World franchise in Warwick Road, West London. As owners of Cartridge World outlets Mike and Ian provide refills and remanufacture printer cartridges, helping customers to reduce unnecessary waste sent to landfills.

As well as the environmental benefits, customers also benefit from significantly reduced prices compared to printer manufacturers' replacements and no compromise in print quality.

Mike and Ian opened their first Cartridge World franchise in Bexleyheath in November 2005 and launched a second in Dartford in February last year. Mike says: 'Our business has grown because people appreciate value, quality and good service. However, increasingly we are each aware of our carbon footprint and refilling printer cartridges makes a real difference. Every little really does count.'

Cartridge World on Warwick Road is launching a free collection and delivery service for local businesses. It will supply printer cartridges and peripheral printing supplies, ensuring that businesses can also benefit from the cost, quality and environmental benefits of Cartridge World.

Mike and Ian have worked closely with a number of schools around each of their stores to promote recycling and are hoping to do the same with local schools in Chelsea, Kensington, Fulham and Earls Court. By collecting used printer cartridges the schools can earn credits to use against refilling their own cartridges for school use, or against new equipment.
