Managed print services solution provider SmartPrint Inc. has acquired St. Laurent, Que.-based DynaCharge Laser Inc. of Montreal, which will expand the company’s services to the Quebec market.
SmartPrint came in No. 85 position on the CDN Top 100 Solution Providers list with revenues between $10 to $15 million.
Tim Lomax, president of SmartPrint, said he plans to welcome DynaCharge clients into the family and believes SmartPrint solutions will help them get to the next level of efficiency through new document workflow processes along with secured office printing.
SmartPrint, who won HP’s Print Partner of the Year award, has typically reduced printing costs by 30 to 50 per cent as well as help desk calls by 25 per cent with its three-prong offering of assessing the print environment, managing it and then optimization where it integrates document workflow software.
“Since 1989, DynaCharge has been providing custom-tailored, high touch managed print services to their clients across Canada. We’ve had a close working relationship with owners Doug and Wayne McGurk for over 20 years, and share their passion for delivering an outstanding client experience. DynaCharge will continue to operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of SmartPrint, led by Wayne and his existing staff,” Lomax said.
Doug McGurk has announced his retirement from DynaCharge.
Wayne McGurk described the acquisition as a “game changer” for Quebec. “Our clients are now able to leverage SmartPrint’s deep expertise in managed print services as well as its tier 1 equipment portfolio and suite of best of breed software solutions,” McGurk said.
SmartPrint in January of 2016 acquired LaserCorp’s Toronto managed print services practice for an undisclosed amount.
