Kyocera has spent decades developing technologies that consistently deliver lower running costs than our competitors. Toner is not a “one size fits all” consumable and there is only one supplier who can deliver the quality, economy and reliability you expect when you purchase a Kyocera device.

Once your business has taken the first step to lowering running costs with KYOCERA devices, it may seem logical to go one step further by using non-original toner. However, the use of non-original toner can jeopardize the benefits you receive with your KYOCERA product and turn out to be much more expensive than you thought.
