Production: Toshiba America Business Solutions Has Reason to Celebrate
Headquartered in Irvine, Calif., Toshiba America Business Solutions (TABS), celebrated the 20th anniversary of its toner products division (TPD) located in Mitchell, S.D. The global operation opened its doors in 1986, and today supplies more than 25 percent of Toshiba’s worldwide needs for toner.
“Given our leadership position, we’re exceptionally proud of our commitment to produce high-quality toner products that are environmentally conscious, with 25 percent of our toner/developer cartridges made from recycled plastics,” said Dave Tronnes, vice president/assistant general manager for TABS-TPD. “Toshiba understands the importance of a better environment and has a strong commitment to the effective use of natural resources, reduction of energy consumption and environmental protection worldwide.”
The company has grown more than 300 percent in manpower, and the facility has doubled in size, with more than 100K square feet of additions. Most recently in 2006, TABS-TPD invested $15 million to enable color toner manufacturing, making it the only Japanese OEM toner facility in the United States to produce color toner, and securing the economic future of the plant for years to come.
