Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) has announced its new partnership with South East-based expert managed print and maintenance specialist Temple Knight. With over 36 years of experience in providing and maintaining print solutions, Temple Knight is suitably placed to deliver Konica Minolta’s broad portfolio to customers across the South East, the wider UK and beyond.
Temple Knight was founded by Richard Chapman in 1985, initially selling and maintaining fax machines and as the markets changed moved into the sales & service of laser printers, photocopiers, label printers, card printers, scanners, and large format plotters. Taking the reins as Managing Director in 2011, his son, Simon introduced bespoke consultation services for customers looking to manage their printing costs and reduce their overall spend, and the company now has grown significantly with customers across the UK, Ireland, and Europe.
Simon Chapman, Managing Director at Temple Knight said, “We are excited to partner with Konica Minolta as it will enable us to grow our market share and enhance our offering of managed print solutions. Konica Minolta’s comprehensive range of exceptionally reliable premium print products and services are perfectly suited to the needs of our customers.”
Neil Hamilton, UK Channel Development Manager at Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) said, “Temple Knight has an extraordinary ability to deliver precisely what its customers want and need – which makes it exactly the kind of expert partner we want to work with. Simon and his team have refocussed their business for growth, based upon the new post-Covid landscape and we are excited to be part of this expansion.”
Simon added, “obviously the pandemic restrictions have been a challenge, but 36 years of business experience have stood us in good stead. We provide remote support helping businesses operate safely. This year we are expecting double-digit growth and Konica Minolta will be a big part of this.
“The market is looking to spend on value-add service and with Konica Minolta providing a wide range of market-leading products, together we are in the prime position to deliver this – it’s the opportunity of the decade.”
