• Cowans Group acquires Business Point

        • Integra member, Cowans Group has announced the successful acquisition of Bedfordshire based office supplies company, Business Point. The bringing together of these two businesses will provide a more rounded and future proofed business together with a further strengthened management team with additional capabilities to better support both customers and staff. 

          Business Point, established in 1987, has expanded into a larger distribution centre, supplying office equipment, stationery, computer consumables and office furniture on a local and national basis. Trading under the name of Cowans Group, the extended team will be able to offer an even broader range of services together with a greater depth of knowledge and experience within areas such as Office Interiors, Workwear & PPE, Print and Corporate/Business Gifts. 

          Ajay Shah, Proprietor of Business Point said, “we are very excited about this acquisition and the potential for future growth. We feel that by bringing our businesses together we will not only strengthen our offering but also be able to further improve our customer service levels to ensure a long prosperous future.”

          Kevin Foot, Managing Director of Cowans Group added, “we are delighted to be acquiring Business Point. With the two companies sharing over 50 years of experience, we will be able to give our customers a ‘Total Solution’ that continues to evolve and that also reflects our approach when it comes to delivering exceptional customer service.

          “Integra has helped us considerably throughout this process with its newly launched i-merge service that provided us with an introduction, a free consultation and the legal assistance we needed. I would recommend any dealer who is seriously looking to buy or sell a dealership to get in touch with Integra who can help with just a simple introduction or a complete service.

          “Everyone at Cowans Group is looking forward to this joint venture and welcome all our customers to enjoy the journey with us.”
