It is a testament to our quality and value that we are able to export from a high labor market like California into markets with much lower labor rates.

Micro Solutions Enterprises (MSE), a U.S.-based remanufacturer of aftermarket imaging supplies, is pleased to announce expansive market penetration in over 40 countries around the world.
In almost every U.S. manufacturing business, the trend favors outsourcing to lower-cost manufacturing markets to support domestic sales.
MSE, on the contrary, has a thriving U.S.-based manufacturing business that supports robust domestic sales as well as its export business.
Printer cartridge remanufacturing is a global business that began in the late eighties.
It arose out of consumer sticker shock, as anybody who has ever purchased a printer cartridge could attest to.
Remanufacturers collect empty cartridges (sometimes themselves, sometimes via brokers), inspect them for damage, repair them by replacing critical components, add toner, reassemble them and sell them on the market to independent dealers, internet wholesalers and even big box retail giants.
The quality and dependability of the product depends on factors common to most businesses, but the capacity and technological commitment of the remanufacturer is considered critical.
MSE is one of the largest remanufacturers in the world and is recognized as an industry leader in technological innovation, automation and quality control.
MSE has been successful in exporting its high-quality recycled imaging supplies into markets as diverse as Dubai, Oman, Russia, Singapore, Chile, Egypt and Ethiopia just to name a few.
This is particularly impressive considering that counterfeit cartridges and cheap ‘newly-builds’ that are often associated with the use of IP infringing materials have recently flooded many parts of Europe, Latin America and the developing world.
MSE believes that there are quality-conscious consumers everywhere seeking cost savings over high-cost original print cartridges. The firm also believes that environmental concerns are of increasing importance to people everywhere, and the MSE offering is a truly environmental/recycled option with OEM-comparable quality.
“It is a testament to our quality and value that we are able to export from a high labor market like California into markets with much lower labor rates,” says Yoel Wazana, president, MSE. ” The receptivity in these markets to a true alternative to high-priced original products proves that U.S. manufacturing can remain viable and provide great products to global consumers.”
MSE currently employs over 900 men and women in its 225,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Van Nuys, California and also operates sales and distribution operations in Pennsylvania and Europe.
Founded in 1994 by Yoel Wazana, MSE is the largest remanufacturer with U.S.-based production facilities and a leading-edge innovator in the marketplace. MSE pioneered the process of Intelligent Re-Engineering™, which employs patented technologies, proprietary processes, and stringent testing methodologies that result in the market’s best alternative to high-cost OEM print consumables. MSE has sales and distribution in Canada, Europe (UK and the Netherlands), Israel, UAE, Brazil, and USA (California and Pennsylvania).
