History
InkTec SA started operations in 1999 as a small, Durban-based company. Over the first three years of operation, the company had a significant facelift with regard to shareholding and market positioning. They developed into a major player in the Southern African printing consumables market and gained invaluable knowledge of the market and industry. By 2002, their Durban-based distributorship of predominantly refill kits to home-based dealers had evolved into a Johannesburg-based company offering solutions to almost all printing needs, and had expanded into a larger and more diverse market spanning across Southern Africa. The Inky Shop Franchise was launched in 2002. Through this concept we strive to offer quality consumables at affordable prices - a concept particularly well received by the market. The Inky Shop Trust was subsequently formed and fulfills the functions of franchisor via its various regional offices in Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal and the Western Cape. The Inky Shop Trust has strong relationships with key suppliers, from which individual stock-lines are carefully selected and scrutinised for quality and reliability. This enables The Inky Shop to cherry-pick from the best stock-lines available through its stable supplier base and benefit from bulk buying power. With a firm history behind us, and assisted by the expertise of an expert franchise development consultancy, we are extremely excited about the future of the Inky Shop and are continually looking to spread our wings into new regions, product ranges and services.
