Xerox and The Danwood Group today announced the creation of a strategic partnership with The Danwood Group appointed as a nationwide authorised reseller and service provider of the Xerox range of industry leading products and solutions. The Danwood Group, with thirty-four sales offices located throughout the UK, Ireland and the Channel Islands, is the largest independent supplier of digital imaging and printing solutions in Europe.

“Appointing The Danwood Group as a nationwide channel partner is a major opportunity for Xerox to access many more potential customers with Xerox technology and business solutions. We believe this will be a long term strategic alliance that will bring mutual benefits.” said Alan Charnley, Managing Director, Xerox UK and Ireland. “Channel expansion is central to our strategy and this move is a key step in that direction. Danwood, which has a particularly strong presence in the corporate and public sectors, will complement our existing channels and enable us to achieve significant incremental sales coverage. The agreement is for Danwood progressively to add the full range of Xerox office, production products and supplies, including all Phaser and WorkCentre printers and multifunction systems that print, copy, fax and scan, Nuvera and DocuColor devices, to their product portfolio.”

“We see the addition of the Xerox office and production products and solutions as a significant enabler to the continued dynamic growth of The Danwood Group, allowing us to offer an even broader range of services to our customers across UK, Ireland and the Channel Islands,” said Graham Reeve, Managing Director for Business Development and Strategy of Danwood. “The addition of Xerox to our portfolio reinforces our status as the leading multi-vendor supplier of document and imaging solutions and is in perfect harmony with our strategy of offering our customers the best solutions, from the world’s leading technology manufacturers, supported and enhanced by Danwood’s service and value proposition. We are delighted that Xerox has chosen Danwood to be a significant part of its growth plans.”
