• SP&C partners with Epson based on its eco merits

        • Social Print & Copy (SP&C), Scotland’s first social enterprise within the print & copier sector, has announced its new partnership with Epson, largely thanks to its strong alignment with the company’s own goals around sustainability and CSR. 

          As a Community Interest Company, SP&C will donate its profits back to the charity sector through a community grants program due to be launched later this year.

          SP&C will predominantly stock and sell Epson printers due to their low-energy consumption, low waste and low costs to the customer. While its core market is print and copier solutions, SP&C will also look at widening its product offering towards large format print and projectors.

          Social Print & Copy was founded on the principle of offering ethical print solutions to its customers that have better value, more flexible solutions, and avoid the burden of large settlement service agreements, pushy sales people or complex contracts. 

          Ian Gray, Director of Social Print & Copy said, “our customers’ stories are consistent, they are bombarded with complex, multi-layered contracts that are hard to understand and often cost more than promised. SP&C seeks to change the way our sector meets its printer and copier needs with cheaper costs and simple contracts. Epson stood out to us as their proposition on printing solutions focussed more on customers reducing their CO2 emissions and waste rather than blindsiding them with broken promises, and they generally proved themselves a great fit to the ethical standards we’re bringing to Scotland.”

          Richard Wells, Head of Business Sales at Epson UK added, “as Epson is solely focussed on the channel, we rely on our partners to deliver our messages and maintain the same values around sustainability as we do. With Social Print & Copy, we are proud to have such a high standard of ethics represent and sell our brand across Scotland, and we look forward to working with this exciting social enterprise.”
