SCC has announced the formal merger of managed print and document services firm M2 into its main business, as it looks to further grow and enhance its MPDS offering.

The newly-integrated setup will now move forward as SCC Managed Print and Document Services, with the reseller hoping the new division will be better-placed to capitalise on growing market opportunities.

Initially acquired back in February 2014, M2 has seen consecutive year-on-year results, SCC said, with growth milestones including the opening of a new Manchester HQ and last year’s acquisition of Hobs On-Site, the business processing outsource division of the Hobs Group.

Over those five years since its purchase, M2 has enhanced the reseller giant’s portfolio of services, it added, with the combined business providing a larger consolidated print presence.

“Our acquisition of M2 has proved hugely successful and our shard capabilities have had a substantial impact on our overall service delivery capability,” said James Rigby, chief executive at SCC.

“Now is the right time to formally merge M2 into the SCC business as we continue to grow and evolve our combined Managed Print and Document Services. The MPDS market has been on a convergence with IT for many years; together as one, the business is well placed to seize the opportunity these trends present.”

Under the new SCC Managed Print & Document Services brand, former M2 CEO John Taylor takes up a new senior leadership role within SCC’s parent company Rigby Group, with Damien Baker appointed as managing director at SCC Managed Print & Document Services.
