Founded in 1983 by John Studholme, Dynamic Cassette International Ltd (DCI Ltd) became a leading innovator and manufacturer of typewriter cassettes throughout the 80s & 90s.


Today, the company has grown to become one of the world's leading remanufacturers of ink and toner cartridges, with R&D, ink formulation, packaging design and production all based at DCI's purpose built production facility in Boston, UK.


DCI's collection arm, The Recycling Factory (TRF), collects over 1 million used ink and toner cartridges per month through tailored collection programmes across the globe. To date, TRF has donated over £4m for its charity partners.


DCI's house brand, Jet Tec, is stocked by thousands of resellers across the UK, with Jet Tec GmbH servicing customers across Europe.


In 2016, under a licence agreement spanning Europe, Middle East, USA and Canada, DCI brought to market a range of KODAK remanufactured ink and toner cartridges.

Sustainability, remanufacturing and recycling is at the core of DCI’s business.  The global use of ink and toner cartridges results in millions of cartridges being thrown away, many of which can be remanufactured or materials recycled.


DCI's collection arm, The Recycling Factory (TRF), operates tailored collection programmes in partnership with charities, retailers, schools and businesses to ensure used ink and toner cartridges avoid landfill and are returned for remanufacturing and material recycling.


Collecting over 1 million used cartridges per month and growing, DCI has donated over £4m to charity partners from used cartridges returned for recycling.
