Brother Philosophy

"We understand that every home and business needs the good printer to operate. This is why we have invested into the Brother brand. Supported by specialists, Brother is a holistic provider of print and imaging solutions that integrate easily into a corporate IT network – breaking the traditional silo printing model that has plagued organizations with low productivity and high maintenance costs."

Partnering with Brother

Brother's printers have been utilized by a wide range of users, ranging from homes to large corporations and government. This generates a huge demand for their consumables. By partnering with Brother together we achieve the National/International consumable distribution footprint required. The national footprint also allows for customers from all regions to return their empty Brother consumable to ACT and in doing so allowing the customer to do their part in going green! ACT currently stocks Brother ink and laser (toner) cartridges.
