Unmatched Product Depth and Breadth
Katun provides imaging supplies, photoreceptors, and parts for copiers, printers, MFPs, fax machines, and digital duplicators from virtually every leading original-equipment manufacturer, including Brother, Canon, Hewlett Packard, Konica Minolta, Kyocera Mita, Lexmark, Okidata, Panasonic, Ricoh, Samsung, Savin, Sharp, Toshiba, and many more.
Katun offers more than 8,000 products via the Katun Online Catalog or through our sales and customer service representatives. No other aftermarket company can match the depth and breadth of our product offering across many different machine platforms.
Comprehensive Product Selection
Katun’s ability to meet your product requirements is driven by the scope of our extensive product portfolio. Katun is your “one-stop shop,” with a product offering that provides unsurpassed breadth and depth.
- Breadth by equipment type: Copiers, printers, MFPs, digital duplicators, etc.
- Breadth by OEM-equivalence: Canon, HP, Sharp, Konica Minolta, Kyocera Mita, Ricoh, and virtually every other major copier, printer, and MFP manufacturer.
- Depth by product type: Toners, drums, fuser rollers, cleaning blades, etc.
This breadth and depth is especially important considering the still converging nature of the copier, printer, and MFP channels. Equally important, this comprehensive product portfolio enables dealers to easily meet the supplies requirements of equipment populations they’ve inherited due to awarded MPS contracts.
Why search from supplier to supplier to find the part you need? With Katun as your aftermarket partner, our comprehensive product selection saves you the time and hassle of finding the products you need.
Best-to-Market vs First-to-Market
Although Katun strives to introduce products quickly so you can begin reducing your service costs on the model applications you service, we will not compromise on quality for the sake of being first-to-market. It’s our “best-to-market” philosophy. Unlike some other suppliers, who, in their rush to be first to market, release a product before it is fully developed and use use paying customers as quality control, Katun thoroughly tests every product before it is made available for sale.
Many aftermarket suppliers don’t have the technical expertise, processes, and equipment that Katun has. They simply find a manufacturing source and purchase their products “off the shelf,” sometimes without any proof of whether the product will work at all, let alone meet OEM-equivalent performance levels across real-world operating conditions. In their rush to be “first-to-market,” they can end up with products that don’t meet your expectations. If they do any in-machine testing, it may be very limited. Instead, you, the customer, may be doing their “testing” for them.
Every Katun brand product is tested to ensure it meets our performance expectations. We won’t sell a product until we get it “just right.” Sometimes that means other aftermarket products will be introduced before ours. While speed to market is important, we’ve learned over the past 40+ years that our customers really want a quality product at significant cost savings. Therefore, we will continue to strive to provide you with “best-to-market” products and the best overall value.
Exclusive Products & True OEM Equivalence
Katun products are often the only OEM-equivalent alternative available to dealers; this is especially true regarding color products. Katun’s technical expertise and resources allow us to overcome design and development challenges that other suppliers can’t. In some cases, other aftermarket suppliers are offering color toner for the same machines; however, the performance and print quality differences are so significant that Katun is the only supplier offering a truly OEM-equivalent product.
In addition, Katun has developed products that actually perform better than OEM products or compensate for OEM machine design flaws. These problem-solving products can lead to better machine performance or increased yields or parts life.

Your company name is the strength of your business. Reinforcing that strength with customers is essential for building repeat supplies business, and personalized products from Katun make it easier than ever!
