Copiserv, a Wakefield based supplier of office technology, active Chamber members and partners of MY Network, Wakefield has been awarded the Business of the Month for January.
This long established business was originally started back in 1975, but was taken over in 2010 by the current Managing Director Gareth Hunt, and supplies printing equipment and print management software to SME’s across Yorkshire, to help clients reduce costs and increase the quality of their in-house printing services.
The company aspires to establish strong relationships with clients to get a thorough understanding of their business, so that they can provide a tailor made individual service that is right for them. They feel this gives them a competitive advantage over other companies in this relatively crowded marketplace. Copiserv provide a range of award winning equipment and solutions including desk-top printers, full colour photocopiers and more efficient ways of storing paperwork to a variety of client sectors, including professional service firms such as accountants, solicitors and estate agents; schools; print and design companies, charities and manufacturing companies.
The judging panel were impressed by the fact that the MD Gareth took over the business during a very difficult economic climate and from a standing start has managed to turn over a reasonable profit margin in the first year of trading. The panel were also impressed with the proactive way the business is promoted. With a business mission, marketing strategy and a focus on building relationships, they aim to ensure that every business within their target area is fully aware of the company within the next 12 months and so the future looks bright for this growing business.
Copiserv Managing Director, Gareth Hunt Said “We would like to thank Eaton Smith and the panel for awarding Copiserv the 'Business of the Month' award. We work hard to try to be a little bit different in our approach in such a crowded marketplace and are pleased that this has been recognised. Things are tough out there and to win this award is a great honour and it's also a great platform to work on moving forward.”
