Columbus, Ohio - Computer specialty chain Micro Center has selected Ink-O-Dem as its exclusive inkjet cartridge refilling supplier.

Under terms of the agreement, Chicago-based Ink-O-Dem will support all 23 Micro Center showrooms nationwide with its flagship cartridge refilling system, which reportedly provides OEM performance at half the price of new cartridges. The chain will share in revenue generated by the refilling system, Ink-O-Dem said, while benefitting from a minimal total cost of ownership.

"Our ability to provide broad cartridge support and a high-margin revenue stream make quality, reliable inkjet cartridge refilling services a natural extension of our retailers' service offerings, said Ink-O-Dem CEO Harry Nicodem.

Micro Center, a subsidiary of Micro Electronics, is one of the nation's largest computer specialty chains, with 36,000 products

in 12 specialized departments in each of its retail locations.

Ink-O-Dem, a subsidiary of 20-year-old TonerHead, refills over 5 million cartridges annually through the educational and retail channels, including such chains as ACE Hardware, Walgreens and Hi-School Pharmacy. Its $10 black and $15 color cartridges are compatible with 95 percent of the integrated inkjet cartridges available, the company said, and its refills helped save consumers some $50 million last year.
