  • (1888PressRelease) August 08, 2010 - GRIGA'S charter meeting will take place on 25 September 2010 in Zhuhai, China, a major hub for the world's consumables business. The aim of the conference is to enhance the worldwide understanding of trends, directions and standards in the development of the copier and printer consumables aftermarket. Another purpose will be to share the experience of promoting eco-friendly, remanufactured products and the remanufacturing philosophy to the public, thereby promoting the healthy and steady development of the remanufacturing industry around the globe. GRIGA was initiated by Recycler Publishing & Events (Zhuhai) Ltd, organizer of this charter event.

    Art Diamond is a 55-year veteran of the imaging industry, having worked in this field continuously since 1955. He is currently President of Diamond Research Corporation (DRC), a high technology consulting and chemical engineering firm he formed in April 1968 specializing in toner, inkjet ink and media R&D, production and marketing. Diamond is also Chairman of The Tiara Group, LLC a trade show management firm he spun off of DRC on July 1, 2001 to perpetuate a series of seminars and trade shows held in Australia, Belgium, China, Mexico, Switzerland and the USA since 1984.

    Upon accepting the invitation to chair the GRIGA forum, Diamond said, "It is an honor to have been selected to serve in this capacity. The mission of this esteemed group of world leaders in the imaging consumables aftermarket is to promote the establishment and support of quality standards and to educate consumers on the virtues of remanufacturing. Among those merits are the three Es: Economic savings, Employment creation and Ecological benefits."

    He added, "I further believe that suppliers have taken an important lead by offering new biotoners to the imaging materials aftermarket. With further development, the biocontent of these cutting edge products will continue to increase, adding to the greening of office imaging operations. They will help reduce our dependence on petroleum-based resins in toner powders. They will also enhance the world's view of aftermarket suppliers as leaders rather than followers."

    Tony Lee, Managing Director of Recycler Publishing & Events (Zhuhai) Ltd, showed his excitement about the forthcoming event as he commented, "GRIGA will play an important role in bringing the industry together by openly discussing important issues facing the industry as a whole. Diamond has extensive knowledge and experience in imaging technology, the market, and event organizing. His engagement in the Global Assembly is another guarantee for the success of this groundbreaking industry event. As the organizer of the first GRIGA and RemaxAsia Expo, we will do our very best to pull together the resources needed to make both the Assembly and the trade show an outstanding success."

    Regional and international associations in the industry from China, Europe, India, and the UK have already confirmed that they will present when the Assembly sits for the first time in September. The supporting media for this event include Recycling Times from China, ISG from France, Rechargeast Magazine from Russia, Consumables Magazine from Spain, and ENX Magazines from the USA.

    The Municipal government of Zhuhai, the host city of the event, strongly supports the Global Remanufacturing Industry General Assembly, and expressed a warm welcome to the trade associations, media, and delegates across the world.

    Static Control will broadcast the Assembly live around the world with its Webinar Program. Future Graphics will sponsor the luncheon for the first Global Remanufacturing Industry General Assembly held on September 25, 2010.

    The day after GRIGA, RemaxAsia Expo will take place, running from September 26-28. Delegates to the Assembly can join with over 8,000 visitors to meet more than 350 exhibitors at the trade show. Zhuhai, and cities nearby, are home to a large number of printer supplies manufacturers. You are welcome to visit many of these manufacturing facilities after the trade show and experience the rapid development and expansion of our industry in this part of the world.
