Company Profile

IMEX creates imaging materials for tomorrow through the latest electronic technology
and advanced chemical technology

Since its foundation in 1982, IMEX has established a solid reputation as adeveloper, manufacturer, and vendor of electrographic toners. Ensuring high quality and functionality, we have also produced steady results in the creation of new imaging materials, such as the development of full-color toners and optimal toners for reused cartridge.

During this span of time, our business domains have expanded from the toner business in which we offer high-quality toners, to the reused cartridge business that contributes to reduction of environmental impact through the utilization of effective and recyclable resources, and to the print solution business that offers comprehensive IT services. Today, all the three business domains are flexibly linked to each other and growing at a steady pace.

The three business domains are underpinned by five guiding principles: “contribution to the development of an advanced information society,” “harmonization with the global environment,” “constant reform of management,” “innovating ways of thinking and acting,” and “respect for teamwork and creation of a challenging workplace.”
These principles are engraved in the hearts of all IMEX-group personnel.

Our aim is to create imaging materials for tomorrow and to contribute to the wide spectrum of society at all times through the latest electronic technology and advanced chemical technology.
