• Xeretec acquires Landscape Group

        • Xeretec has acquired HP MPS and Solutions Specialist, Landscape Group, in a move designed to create a new managed print powerhouse. The acquisition brings new opportunities for the two resellers including expansion with new and existing customers, as well as gaining technical knowledge, toolsets, service capabilities and market expertise.

          Customers will now enjoy access to a broader range of advanced A4 and A3 multifunction devices from both Xerox and HP. Landscape also brings with it new service offerings, including HP’s Device as a Service (DaaS). This combines innovative devices, lifecycle services and HP’s expertise into an all-inclusive, HP-managed solution – with per-seat, per-month cost certainty for customers.

          Steve Hawkins, Xeretec’s Chief Executive said, “the game-changing acquisition of Landscape Group is a transformational moment for Xerox, HP, our customers and our staff. Xeretec will continue to consolidate and develop its longstanding commitment to the Xerox brand, building on its exceptional track record of success. This best-of-breed acquisition plays to the strengths of both respected brands and both resellers, while introducing new complementary HP devices and value-added services like DaaS to even more customers. With the potential it offers customers and staff, we are thrilled to see the Landscape Group become a Xeretec Group company, and we warmly welcome its team to the existing Xeretec family.”

          David Smith, Landscape’s Chief Executive Officer added, “this announcement represents a real milestone for our current and future customers, who are, without doubt, the most important part of any business. But it also brings new opportunities for our staff and partners. By combining Landscape’s 20 years plus of dedicated HP expertise, the scale and nationwide reach of Xeretec and HP’s impressive new entrance into the A3 MFP market place, customers now have an obvious route to investigate what a ‘new comer’ can offer to enhance their IT infrastructure.”

          The companies expect the acquisition to drive additional customer demand and they are both recruiting now in order to upscale their sales and support operations, creating new employment opportunities across both businesses. The Landscape Group brand will remain and become a Xeretec Group company, still based at its location in East Hampshire. To ensure consistency and assurance for its customers, all customer relationships, service and support will be served uninterrupted by the Landscape Group’s staff.

          This in no way changes Xeretec’s core relationship with Xerox, and the acquisition of Landscape means the Xeretec Group with Xerox and HP in its portfolio is now more favourably positioned to effectively meet the needs of customers across multiple industries, whether UK based or located overseas.
