Motivations & Location


Since 1993, CMS premises have been situated in the heart of the wine region in South-West France with strong logistics to the rest of the world. Motivated by the idea of an open market and belief that competition is healthy for business, founder Sandrine Manuaud wished to give users of inkjet printers an alternative to the OEM’s products.

At the beginning CMS concentrated on the domestic French market. We rapidly found that the interest for quality products at fare prices extended outside of France. Consequently sales grew into Europe and the rest of the world. Apart from alternatives fluids, CMS met and fulfilled demands for custom formulations and toll manufacturing for OEMs around the world.

Quality & Team


Quality is primordial, so we insist on the highest standards at all levels. Only the best raw materials are used in our inks and solvents. Performance is also important, not only of the products that we supply but also in the service we provide. Our staff and their commitment is the key to our success. CMS is proud of its staff and everyone in our team is committed to provide the best possible service and products as all our customers are important to us.



The environment is precious to everyone, so here at CMS we actively recycle so materials may be reused and we reduce our CO2 footprint. We try to develop packaging to reduce waste from the conception of a product for example carton that is easier to recycle; reducing the number of over packs and cartridges using less plastics.

We are in full compliance with local regulations and international ones where they apply.
