Business Solutions recognizes IIMAK as the only TTR manufacturer to be named for the second year in a row.

AMHERST (N.Y.) January 5, 2016 – IIMAK, a global leader in the development and manufacturing of printing, imaging and marking consumable supplies, has been named a Best Channel Vendor for 2016 by Business Solutions Magazine (BSM) subscribers. IIMAK received excellent ratings in all seven categories with top scores in the service & support and channel friendly categories. For the second year in a row, IIMAK has the honor of being the only Thermal Transfer Ribbon manufacturer selected in the survey.

“IIMAK is constantly striving to provide world-class services to our partners and we’re honored to have been recognized again this year”, said Jose Morlin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at IIMAK. “The TTR market has become extremely competitive with new entrants compromising the channel. We strive to preserve channel integrity and will provide new products and services enabling our channel partners to grow their TTR business.”
