About Lena Andersson

Lena, the owner of TRI Resources Intl, began working in the ribbon industry for Aspen Ribbons in Boulder, CO, shortly after moving to the USA from her homeland of Sweden. Her personal attention to detail quickly moved her into the ‘lab’ doing research and maintaining the database for the AspenGuide. Lena’s work helped make AspenGuide the undisputed leader and many considered it to be the virtual Bible of cross-referencing in the industry. In the early 1990s, Lena joined Nukote and was actively involved in publishing the Encyclopedia of Imaging Supplies.

By 1998, technology allowed Lena to create a cross-reference guide on CD ROM, and thus TRI Resources International and the TRIguide were created. Toner, ribbons, and inkjets were the basis of this guide. In 2003, Lena transition the CD to TRIguideOnline so businesses can now access her data on the Internet.
