This type of recognition confirms Midshire’s position as one of the leading managed print service resellers in the UK.

Midshire Sales Director, Kevin Tunley comments on the awards “We are thrilled to be recognised in both categories by Ricoh, a technology giant and the leader in the printing industry.

 We have been working extremely hard at growing our market share and expanding our portfolio of products to meet customer demands has been just one part of that growth.

Ricoh continually drives change and innovation in the marketplace and our sales team are quick to respond to these developments taking full advantage of our strong partnership and support from Ricoh. Long may it continue!”

Midshire has been partnered with RicohRicoh for 15 years and is continually named in their top tier of resellers, offering customers the highest possible diversity in product range, competitive pricing as well as specialist training and support. Ricoh devices have become a firm favourite with Midshire customers, who recognise the quality and consistency that comes with the Ricoh brand name.

Amongst many successes during 2015, there were two key contracts that helped to place Midshire right at the front of the reseller list.

In August, Midshire won a key contract to supply and service the largest number of Ricoh GelJet printers ever sold in a single agreement in the UK. The Ricoh devices were chosen because of their ease of use, low maintenance, green impact and Midshire’s outstanding ability to deliver a managed print service.

In addition, Midshire has been one of the first resellers in the country to supply the revolutionary, 5-colour digital press, the Ricoh Pro C7100. Installed into a production printing facility in the North West, the new 5-colour machine allows users to print with the standard 4 colours with an additional fifth colour option of white ink or a clear gloss toner for lamination purposes.

Julian Liddiatt, Ricoh Partner Sales Manager comments on Midshire “Over the last 12 – 18 months Midshire has implemented an aggressive marketing and sales strategy which has led to exceptional growth across all areas of the company. Its experienced and growing sales team has capitalised on this strategy and continues to break targets month on month. I look forward to working with the team at Midshire to ensure that Ricoh remains a strong partner and at the centre of company growth.”

The company is looking forward to a strong 2016 working closely with Ricoh to continue its impressive sales and bring new products to its customer base across the UK.
