Clover and MSE Announce Strategic Merger

CHICAGO, IL – June 26, 2014 – Today, Clover, the global leader in the recovery, refurbishment, remanufacturing and redeployment of business and electronic assets and Micro Solutions Enterprises (MSE), the global leader in patented technologies for high quality remanufactured toner cartridges, announced their strategic merger. The meshing of these two world-class operations creates an impressive alliance that will greatly benefit both companies’ customers.  The transaction is expected to close in late summer pending regulatory approval. 

For 20 years, MSE has supported the global dealer community with OEM alternative products that are lauded in the industry for their quality, reliability and value. Since its inception in 1996, Clover has evolved from a remanufacturer of ink and toner cartridges to one of the largest global providers of world-class products and services including asset valuation, collections, reverse logistics, repair, remanufacturing, and resale for the imaging, wireless and telecommunications equipment markets. 

Yoel Wazana, President and founder of MSE, had this to say about the MSE and Clover merger, “We have always approached this business with a spirit of innovation driven by engineering and a zeal to always strive for improvement.  This new partnership will only enhance these core principles by providing more access to resources, engineering, technology, and world-class production facilities. Together with Clover, we will leverage the technology, R&D and QC global teams utilizing MSE’S intelligent re-engineering platform to bring better products and solutions to the marketplace.”  

Avi Wazana, MSE’s CEO, echoed Yoel’s statement, saying “Clover’s leadership position in the recovery, remanufacturing and remarketing of technology assets will enable MSE to expand into new markets and products much quicker than we could have on our own.   By capitalizing on our complementary strengths and utilizing Clover’s core collection programs, global footprint, logistics, and distribution capabilities to enhance availability and product line diversification, we will deliver unparalleled quality, value and service to our collective customers. This partnership will provide us the opportunity to make the MSE brand stronger than ever.”  

CEO of Clover, Jim Cerkleski, concluded by saying, “We are excited about supporting our USA manufacturing base at MSE’s California facility with this merger.  Our combined experience, skill sets and capabilities will create never-before-seen value for all of our customers. For a long time, MSE’s brand has been synonymous with quality and innovation. This strategic partnership allows us to work together to leverage MSE’S patented technologies and proprietary processes, as well as their unparalleled product development capabilities for the benefit of all of our global customer base.  On a personal note, I am looking forward to working with the MSE executive and management team to maximize the benefit to our combined customers of MSE’s established expertise in quality and product development.”
