R and G Capital brings ‘Total Laser Care Solution’
R&G Capital (Pvt) Ltd. – pioneers in manufacturing compatible Laser
Toner Cartridges in Sri Lanka – has put forward a cutting-edge solution,
by offering the customers a Total Laser Care (TLC) solution in regard to
HP, Lexmark, Samsung, and Canon Laser Printers.

Control Components presenting the STMC certificate to S. M.
Godwin, Managing Director, R & G Capital (Pvt) Ltd.
R&G as a total care solution provider presents two cost cutting
options to customers: a commitment basis contract and a 'pay as you
print' option. Under the commitment basis contract, the customer can
purchase ink toner cartridges from R&G Capital, 30% cheaper than the
original cartridge. Not stopping there the company will go the extra
mile to provide maintenance and services free of charge to ensure that
nothing interrupts the productivity of the business. Even if the
warranty of the printer has expired R&G will attend to any maintenance,
which includes replacing parts and providing a back up printer until the
repair is completed.
For the second option, the customer can pay according to the number
of pages that he or she prints. This is an ideal solution for those who
use printing excessively. If 1,000 pages are printed, the customer will
only have to pay for the said 1,000 pages. Under this option R&G
provides the printer and the laser toner cartridges and only charges the
customer for the number of pages printed. Due to this the customer would
not have to worry about investment or the initial capital required.
Equipped with the Standardized Test Methods Committee (STMC)
certification, R&G Capital – the only company in Sri Lanka to receive
such recognition – has indeed presented a cost minimizing and a profit
maximizing option, especially for those who are connected to Financial
Institutions and Apparel Industries that require unrestrained usage of
printers and toner cartridges. Since its inception in 1988, R&G has
garnered a vast amount of experience when it comes to providing
innovative printing solutions to corporate Sri Lanka, resulting in this
spearheading solution. Furthermore, understanding the competitive nature
of the current market, R&G has adapted themselves accordingly, offering
the right solution at the right moment.

“This is a recession product,” said Managing Director, R&G Capital (Pvt)
Ltd.,Godwin, relaying his sentiments about the new solution that the
company is offering to the competitive market. “This is a cost cutting
product that has come to the market at the right time,” he said.
R&G provides an island wide service with branches located in Wattala,
Nugegoda, Kotahena, Kandy, Kurunegala, Matara and Jaffna. Furthermore,
they have tied up with UPS Courier, presenting prompt responses to the
orders placed, which represents their perception of ‘Just in Time.’ This
renders storing unnecessary, cutting down complications related to
storing such as damaging the product and theft.
As a testament to their reliability, R&G’s services are employed by
leading brands including all branches of Sampath and Seylan Banks. Armed
with well trained, qualified and experienced technicians that work
relentlessly to provide the best possible service and also equipped with
Eco friendly standards, R&G Capital has indeed proven that they are the
leaders when it comes to printing solutions in Sri Lanka.
