Midshire Expands Operations into Cumbria

Posted on

Industry leading office technology sales and service provider Midshire continues its expansion across the UK, by launching its services into Cumbria. Midshire already supplies and services photocopiers and printers to many businesses and schools in Cumbria, but is looking to develop the business, focusing on a more local approach.

With over 11,000 installations nationally, Midshire is one of the country’s leading resellers and is recognised for being at the forefront of its industry. Providing companies with everything they need to run an office efficiently, Midshire supplies photocopiers and printers on a ‘Managed Print Service’, telecommunication solutions and IT services and support.

Midshire’s newest appointment, Martin Chandler joins Midshire as Sales Manager and will be working with organisations across the Cumbria region. Martin brings with him almost 30 years experience in the print solutions industry, having worked for some of the biggest manufacturers and resellers in the country.

Julian Stafford, Midshire Managing Director comments on Martin’s appointment, “Martin is a fantastic addition to our sales team. I know that he is focused and has the ambition to actively promote the Midshire brand and technology products in Cumbria. I look forward to welcoming Martin to the team and helping businesses streamline and improve their print and technology solutions.”

Most recently Martin specialised in the Lexmark print device range, becoming one of the most knowledgeable Lexmark sales professionals in the country. As a Lexmark Business Solutions Partner, Midshire is looking forward to using Martin’s experience to promote this range in the region.

As well as providing high quality, robust print devices, Lexmark has introduced software solutions to ease office workflows and increase overall business efficiency. Many solutions can be tailored exactly to the requirements of the business.

Martin Chandler remarks, “I am delighted to join Midshire and relish the challenge of delivering the brand’s excellent products and services to an area I know and live in. Midshire’s strength in providing exceptional service is something I am confident will appeal to businesses in the region and working with some of the world’s leading manufacturer partners such as Lexmark, Sharp, Ricoh, Toshiba, RISO and HP means there is something for everyone. We can support any size of organisation.”

The Midshire Group was established 25 years ago with just three employees and today has over 235 staff across its four regional offices in: West Bromwich, Stockport, Sheffield and Pontyclun in Wales.

In addition to the territory growth, Midshire is continually looking to expand its in-house expertise, with individuals like Martin who have a proven track record in the field.

Midshire provides remote monitoring on all photocopiers and printers it installs, so that meter readings and service information can be taken automatically from the machines, removing the hassle for the customer.

Midshire aims to be an active part of the areas it works in, supporting local organisations, charities and the community through sponsorship, fundraising and technology support. Midshire has raised over £150,000 for local charities on a national scale in the past two years alone and has recently supported the Animal Refuge at Wetheral, by providing a photocopier to assist in their administration office.

For any business looking to improve its print set up, Midshire offers a free print audit to assess current print output and suggest areas for improvement.
