operations of their respective organizations.

entities to succeed in achieving greater efficiency and performance in
all related operational processes. Being the Global No. 1 Supplier of
POS systems, Toshiba Tec is in an exceptional position to utilize its
comprehensive market knowledge of the retail industry. Additionally

multiple times, enables customers to reuse precious resources wisely and

approximately 26 million Dollars annually at all their stores across the
United States and their suppliers' operation facilities.

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

the market. Toshiba Tec has the ability to offer valuable turnkey
solutions and products to improve customers' processes and augment work

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
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.

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.

vertical solutions and Eco solutions, Toshiba Tec is striving to provide
unique printing technology that helps customers to achieve their goals.
