Canon invests in the channel through partnership with Capital Document Solutions

Canon has announced a partnership with Capital Document Solutions, an independent supplier of tailored print and document solutions in Scotland.

The collaboration demonstrates a shared commitment to growth in the region and comes as part of Canon’s increased focus on driving channel growth.

Canon provides organisations with solutions to help them overcome the challenges of digital transformation and explore opportunities to increase productivity, profitability, and efficiency. Capital’s position across five long established regional branches complements Canon’s existing routes to market in the region, giving Scottish organisations improved supplier choice and greater access to Canon solutions.

“We are very excited to be embarking on our partnership with Capital”, says James Pittick, Director of B2B Indirect Sales, Canon UK and Ireland. “Our goal is to make it easier for end users to access our technology and expertise through their preferred channel and a strong regional partner network is key to this. Capital is a trusted local supplier with a great heritage of providing sound professional advice and exceptional customer service and our two organisations share the same values of working ethically for the common good.”

Capital has been operating for over 38 years and is the largest independent document solutions provider in Scotland. Its wide branch network provides local, regional and national support to Corporate, SME, Public and Third sector clients across the whole of Scotland.

Tom Flockhart, Managing Director at Capital commented: “We are committed to delivering exceptional solutions to businesses across the Scottish regions. Canon is well recognised for its high-quality print and imaging solutions so we feel this partnership is a winning combination for businesses, enabling us to offer enhanced choice to our customers. We pride ourselves on having a team of over 200 people operating across our five regional branches. They have local presence and knowledge, building long term solutions for our customers.”

Capital will be expanding its sales, support and service staff to give comprehensive advice on the latest range of Canon solutions. The company is looking to invest over £200,000 in an upgrade of its HQ facilities and increase headcount over the next 18-24 months to help achieve a double-digit percentage growth in turnover.
