Two new Canon Business Centres open in West Sussex and Munster

Canon UK & Ireland has announced the opening of two new Canon Business Centres in collaboration with Platinum Partners SOS Systems in Crawley, West Sussex, and Cantec Group in Munster, Ireland. Both new openings will support local businesses by delivering print and document management expertise, alongside bespoke and unrivalled customer service.

Following in the footsteps of Canon’s Business Centre Northeast, which operates in Newcastle, Canon Business Centre Munster (CBC Munster) and Canon Business Centre SOS (CBC SOS) will open their doors on Tuesday 17th January 2023.

Both new CBCs are the first in their respective regions and will offer advice to local businesses, providing them with tailored technology solutions to support their wider business needs. The newly formed CBCs will combine the expertise of a local and trusted reseller with the strength of Canon’s portfolio of products and solutions.

Stuart Miller, Director of B2B Indirect Sales, Canon UK&I said, “Cantec and SOS are two trusted partners we have been working alongside for many years and share many of the same values, including an ambition to deliver the best customer service and innovation to our customers. By partnering together to create these two new CBCs, we hope to deliver even stronger support to local businesses, offering award-winning solutions which will help them to grow in these challenging times.”

Based in Crawley, SOS Systems has a customer base that stretches throughout the South of England across multiple sectors. The business was established in 1985 and prides itself on its high levels of customer service, flexibility, and innovation expertise. It currently delivers print, document, and information management solutions to its customers and guidance on wider business initiatives such as digital transformation.

Chris Sills, Managing Director, SOS Systems said: “We’re delighted to be collaborating with Canon on this exciting project – which marks a huge step in our 32 years of working together. Today more than ever before, local businesses are seeking out ways to save costs, boost profits and optimise processes – our new CBC SOS supports this ambition and we’re looking forward to helping local businesses grow and succeed.”

Based in Waterford, Cantec Group was established in 1994 as a photocopier dealership by the parents of CEO Greg Tuohy and executive chair Eadaoin Carrick. Since then, the business has grown with offices in Limerick, Mullingar, Dublin, and Cork to become an industry leader in technology solutions – delivering integrated hardware and software solutions.

Greg Tuohy, CEO, Cantec Group added, “the evolution of our business has come about by recognising and adjusting to an ever-changing world and the diverse requirements of the organisations we work with. After 28 years of partnership with Canon, we’re excited to be opening the first CBC in Ireland – offering us the opportunity to support local businesses and find new ways to help them enhance their processes.”

Canon UK&I will continue to work alongside other partners in the regions and across the UK.
