Colne firm forms partnership with global business
5:58pm Monday 19th August 2013 in News
AN award-winning business has pulled off a major coup by linking up with a global giant.
IT specialist Holker Network Solutions has announced a prestigious partnership with Ricoh, one of the world's biggest print management companies.
This latest move will enable Colne-based Holker Network Solutions to add a full print division to its comprehensive list of services across IT support, networking, security, telephone systems, data storage etc.
“We have come a long way in a relatively short time, but this deal with Ricoh represents our biggest development to date,” said Matthew Metcalfe, managing director of Holker Network Solutions, the current Lancashire Telegraph small business of the year.
“It means we can offer our customers the genuine market leader in multi-functional devices, scanners and printers – not to mention digital duplicators, educational interactive whiteboards, portable video conferencing and the world’s first short-throw no-installation-required projectors.
“To have Ricoh on side is massive for us and the reward for a lot of hard work behind the scenes.
“It has not happened overnight and we fully understand that major global operations such as Ricoh do not enter into partnerships on a whim.
“It is immensely satisfying that they have seen in us a young, vibrant firm with not only expertise but also a genuine desire to succeed.”
The investment between the two firms sees highly-skilled engineers already in place and the full range of Ricoh’s products immediately available.
Russell Pirie, new business dealer sales manager for Ricoh UK, said: “We are delighted that Holker Network Solutions has joined in partnership with Ricoh UK to supply and service office technology to the Lancashire business community.
“Ricoh is a global technology company specialising in office imaging equipment, production print solutions, document management systems and IT services.
“And, with Holker Network Solutions’ track record in the North West of England, we are looking forward to a strong relationship, delivering value to customers in the region.”
