Printronix Auto ID re-introduces its popular ‘trade in/trade up’ scheme


Printing expert Printronix Auto ID has just announced the re-introduction of its popular scrappage scheme across Europe. It is inviting companies running its old, discontinued T5000 machines and other industrial thermal barcode printers to trade them in and trade up to T8000 devices and enjoy discounts of up to 7%.

“Following the success of the ‘trade in/trade up’ scheme we launched in Spring 2018, we have re-introduced it by popular demand this year,” says Neil Baker, Printronix Auto ID’s Sales Manager UK, Ireland, Benelux & South Africa. “It enables firms to enjoy the improved performance of our newer printers at a discounted price as well as ensuring their traded in devices are disposed of safely and responsibly.”

“Mindful of our WEEE responsibilities, we are working with a professional Europe-wide waste management company with an excellent reputation. It will collect the old devices and dispose of them in line with EU standards,” adds Neil.

The trade in/trade up offer is open to any European company. To participate in the scheme, businesses need to supply the printer model and serial number of the device(s) they are trading in. They can either do this by contacting their local reseller, or by applying for the scheme via the web link

Under the scheme, firms in the EU can trade in/trade up as little as one device. For European companies outside the EU, the minimum number of old industrial printers to be traded in and traded up is five.

“By trading in their old T5000 for a new T8000, businesses would notice a real difference in performance and build,” suggests Jon Trippett, Printronix Auto ID’s Sales Manager UK & Ireland. “The T8000 is rugged and feature-rich,” he says. “It offers 40% faster print speed, eight times more standard memory, full colour 3.4” display panel, a quick change memory card (QMQC) and the industry’s most extensive library of printer emulations including PostScript/PDF printing.”

Companies interested in participating in this sustainable scrappage scheme should first register their interest at and complete the online trade-in form. Once firms have had their trade-in accepted and the purchase order (PO) placed, the new T8000 will be delivered.

No later than 10 days after the new printer has been received, the traded in T5000(s) have to be ready for collection by the scrapping company otherwise the discount can’t be awarded.  This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotions and terms and conditions apply.
