Canon has partnered with DMC Canotec to launch its first Canon Business Centre (CBC) in the UK. As a result, DMC Canotec will handle sales of office solutions to commercial customers in the South West of England from offices in Bristol. This move takes Canon's 25-year partnership with DMC Canotec to the next level and outlines its strategy for growth in the region. The launch continues Canon's strategic commitment to investing in the channel, following the relaunch of the Canon EMEA channel partner programme earlier this year.
The new CBC will help local businesses in England's South West discover new levels of productivity and security, decrease operating costs and create a platform for growth. Customers will be supported by a strengthened local team with a unique presence and experience supporting organisations in the region.
James Pittick, Director of B2B Indirect Sales, Canon UK said, "it is exciting to launch the Canon Business Centre model in the UK for the first time. Joining a mature network of more than 130 CBCs across Europe, the new CBC is the perfect way to bring the global Canon brand, technology and service to local businesses.
"With a shared vision to build our customer relationships in the South West; DMC Canotec was a perfect match for Canon. This is a key part of a reinvigorated focus on Partners and growing our B2B channel business."
Throughout its 25-year partnership with Canon, DMC Canotec has built a reputation as an expert supplier of document management solutions to local businesses.
Richard Vinall, Regional Director at DMC Canotec added, "we want to help businesses in the South West be as competitive as possible. Customers from Bristol to Penzance and beyond will now have access to more support than ever before; from the breadth of Canon's portfolio to the hands-on management and care that is so important to businesses today."
Canon UK will continue to work alongside other partners in the region and across the UK.
