Warrington, 15 October 2021 – SYNAXON UK has added another name to its growing list of distributor partners – the specialist provider of print and IT products, UFP. With immediate effect, UFP’s impressive portfolio is available to resellers through SYNAXON’s industry-leading online procurement platform, EGIS.
Founded in Paris in 1981, today UFP has a pan-European presence and annual sales of over €1.26 billion (£108 million). It employs 750 people, 125 of them at its UK base in Bradford. UFP is an authorised distributor for Apple, Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson, HP, IBM, Kyocera, Lenovo, Lexmark, Logitech, NETGEAR, OKI, Samsung, Xerox, and other leading vendors. As well as print devices, it offers networking, peripherals, data storage, mobile accessories, and other tech products for delivery throughout the UK.
The addition, UFP brings the total number of distributors on EGIS to 40 and makes the platform even more useful for reseller, retailers, and office products suppliers.
SYNAXON UK’s Managing Director, Mike Barron, said: “UFP is a really valuable addition to EGIS. It’s a thriving and dynamic business built on delivering the best products and services and we’re delighted to have them on-board. In our view, EGIS is the best procurement platform in the UK channel and with over two million products available from 40 distributors – including all the leading names – it provides resellers, webstores and office products dealers with great choice, great service, and great value.”
Adam Collier, General Manager at UFP, added: “Our partnership with SYNAXON UK will help us to reach out to even more resellers and dealers and allow them to take advantage of UFP’s services. Our business is built on hard work, honesty, and relationships – a partner you can rely on. We’re keen to show SYNAXON UK partners how that translates into excellence in choice, value, and service for their business.”
As the UK steadily emerges from lockdown, SYNAXON UK is approaching the second half of the year with renewed vigour and looking to work with more partners. SYNAXON recently announced a major strategic shift that places its focus on four key areas of activity: EGIS; SYNAXON Distribution; SYNAXON Managed Services; and the EGIS eCom web stores. All services can be accessed through the newly-launched website – synaxon-services.com.
