Managed print services reseller M2 has splashed out on a new office in Wakefield to target more business in the East Midlands and Yorkshire.
The London-based Canon, Ricoh and Xerox partner already has branch offices in Manchester and Glasgow but now wants to exploit more sales opportunities along the M1 ‘spine’ including Derby, Leicester, Nottingham and Leeds.
M2 has already embarked on a small-scale recruitment drive around sales, professional services and customer support roles for its new premises, and plans to more than double this over the next 18 months as it builds out technical and field-based ops teams.
“M2 has grown materially over recent years through organic growth…. We felt as a business we wanted to be closer to the cities along the M1 and ensure closer working relationships with customers in the region,” explained CEO John Taylor.
“As a strategic investment we are convinced this will aid our aspirations to sustain our 20% growth rate,” he added.
