Gestetner is, for all intents and purposes, the first and oldest name in the copier industry. The name comes from the founder of the original company, David Gestetner. He was a Hungarian, born in 1854, and inventor of the Gestetner stencil duplicator in 1890. This duplicator was the first piece of office machinery which allowed for quick and inexpensive duplication of documents. It brought together current technologies of the time developed by Thomas Edison, A.B. Dick and David Gestetner, himself.
The stencil duplicator, also referred to as the "Gestetner" or the "mimeograph," brought several distinct benefits to the world of publishing. This was the first time in history an individual was able to express him or herself in the printed word and distribute these words to the masses without the use of a printing press. At that time, use of a printing press required large amounts of money, special connections or, sometimes, both.
Mimeograph machines became quite popular, in one configuration or another, and were used extensively until the 1960s when they were finally supplanted by copier machines and inexpensive offset printing services. They are rarely used in developed countries today because the price and ease of photocopying has become so attractive. They are, however, still used extensively in the developing world because of their low-tech ability to produce decent quality copies even in locations having no access to electricity.
The Gestetner brand name has been owned by Ricoh, a Japanese company, since 1995. In Europe, where Gestetner had come to be called the NRG Group, the name was changed to Ricoh Europe in April 2007. At this same time, Ricoh merged its Gestetner dealer network with its Lanier network, because both had been selling the same, identical products for more than a decade. Subsequently, customers in the Americas are able to substitute and interchange Lanier and Gestetner branded products.
Consequently, when purchasing and using supplies for Gestetner and Lanier copiers, fax machines and printers, items for one brand can often be interchanged with the other, assuming model numbers are compatible. When ordering items such as ink and toner cartridges, drums, developers or other supplies, these items can often be swapped, giving you the opportunity to select the least expensive alternative.
You can order most anything you need to keep your Gestetner equipment running at peak performance from specialty sites online. Whether it is color toner models, digital duplicator models, inkjet, laser, ribbon or thermal fax units, you have the option of obtaining either genuine brand replacement supplies or high quality compatible brand imaging supplies. In most cases, all you need to provide is the model number of the machine or the part number of the item.
