Toshiba Tec is in an exceptional position to utilize its comprehensive market
knowledge of the retail industry. Additionally Toshiba Tec’s paper reusing
system, which enables toner to be printed on and erased from temporary used
paper as well as regular office paper multiple times, enables customers to
reuse precious resources wisely and sustainably. According to Toshiba Tec’s

edge know-how of Toshiba group, Toshiba Tec’s advantage is further
strengthened in both the manufacturing and supply chain arena. In these
business sectors, the paper-reusing system is already contributing to their

manufacturer paper consumption has been reduced by more than 90 percent.

Only Toshiba Tec is able to provide such unique and exciting services to the
market. Toshiba Tec has the ability to offer valuable turnkey solutions and
products to improve customers’ processes and augment work efficiency at

ECO Solution for Sustainable Business

Organizations around the world are trying to be more environmentally conscious
while at the same time increasing profit with limited resources and energy. As
one of the world’s foremost eco-companies, Toshiba Tec has been putting into
practice “Green activities” that promote harmony with Mother Earth. The
Toshiba Tec Printing Solutions is committed long term to nurturing green
printing where the use of paper based documents is unavoidable, in the retail
businesses, logistics operations, manufacturing facilities and other B2B
operations, across the globe.

With the 2013 launch of the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30, the world's first eco–friendly
MFP system, Toshiba Tec provides customers an MFP that operates with re-usable
paper. By reusing paper multiple times it enables users to decrease
environmental destruction, and will also help saving paper cost.

In addition to the eco-friendly MFP system, Toshiba Tec will reinforce its
managed services focused on green. Managed Document Services (MDS) is a key
solution to optimize the printing environment to improve customers’ workflow,
and Toshiba Tec will enhance its MDS to “ECO-MDS” which is a more eco-friendly
solution. Besides the current MDS which includes print and device management,
Toshiba Tec’s “ECO-MDS” manages environment around customers by combining its
eco-friendly products, functions, and every other element. For example, the
paper reusing system to reduce paper consumption, or the ribbon saving mode of
the barcode printers that also save supplies. Energy and power management
systems are also included in this ECO-MDS.

With the strategy of “Unique Differentiations”, concentrating on vertical
solutions and Eco solutions, Toshiba Tec is striving to provide unique
printing technology that helps customers to achieve their goals. And the same
passion goes into how we are committed to a green earth.
