Applied Imaging, Michigan’s premier independent office technology dealer entered into a partnership with Royal Oak’s ArborOakland Group, one of Michigan’s largest commercial printers. When they completed the transaction for the state’s first Ricoh Pro C9110 Color Production Press the first week of September, it was a week prior to Ricoh’s official launch. With volumes up to 1.7 million impressions per month, speeds up to 130 pages per minute and 1200 x 4800 dpi, the Ricoh product has joined the segment 6 color market to replace high volume Kodak, Xerox and HP products. Scott Gurke, the Applied Imaging representative, and Dave Hamilton, the ArborOakland Group representative who engineered the placement, felt especially positive about the agreement since this is very competitive environment to succeed in and…

When I was little, there was always one thing I would do every time I visited my grandma’s house. I would make my way into her basement and steal some paper from her dot matrix printer, carefully rip the perforated edges off, and make fun doilies out of them. But what makes that printer different than the printers we have today, and why did it have those weird perforated edges?
A while back, I wrote a blog post about when we recycled almost 800 printers. Well, what would have happened if we hadn’t recycled them responsibly? In the city of Accra, Ghana, the West African nation’s capital, there is an electronic waste dump called Agbogbloshie.

That’s why Applied Imaging is committed to making sure old printers and copiers that are returned to us are recycled responsibly. We partner with local organizations who take apart the…
