KROY LAUNCHES SUPPLY CARTRIDGE RECYCLING PROGRAM

 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Kroy Inc., a major manufacturer of lettering and labeling machines, has launched a recycling program for its labeling supply cartridges.
 The program is called Repeat Performance and applies to the Kroy 460 and 360 digital lettering systems, the Kroy DuraType(R) 240 series electronic labelers and the TubeMarker(TM) 600 portable shrink tube marker. Owners can now return their spent supply cartridges to their local participating Kroy distributor.
 The authorized Kroy distributor accumulates the used supply cartridges for return to Kroy's Recycling Department in Osceola, Wisc. Kroy provides assistance to the distributor by offsetting the expense of collecting and shipping cartridges back to Kroy for recycling. Returned cartridges are opened to remove parts that are reusable by Kroy. Parts that cannot be reused are sent to a recycling center and will be used as raw material in a host of products for general use.
 "Kroy is aware of the increasing burdens being placed on the environment," said Jim Bonfiglio, Kroy president and chief executive officer. "We recognize our responsibility as a good corporate citizen to seek to minimize our environmental waste impact."
 He added that the company has received numerous requests from Kroy labeling machine owners about recycling their spent supply cartridges.
 "With the hundreds of thousands of supply cartridges purchased annually, we are pleased to take action that will contribute to a cleaner environment. The idea is not to add to the waste pile, but rather to keep the materials in the process of reuse. All future cartridge supplies will be built for ease of recycling."
 The "Repeat Performance" program is part of Kroy's continuing effort to become more environmentally responsible. Last year, the company converted to environmentally friendly packing materials. Kroy also removed the plastic "blister pack" from the packaging of most of its supplies, substantially reduced emissions by converting to water-based coatings and is involved in numerous other programs to reduce its environmental impact.
 Kroy Inc., headquartered in Scottsdale, designs, manufactures and markets a high-quality line of communications products including labeling, lettering and print products, bar coding and signs. The company's manufacturing facility is located in Osceola. Kroy products are used extensively in government, health care and industry by architects, designers, facility managers, engineers, printers, office personnel and retail customers.
