    Samsung Award to Top Reseller Faxco

    Samsung Electronics has announced that resellers, Faxco Ltd were one of two big winners at FutureScape 2015 – Samsung’s annual showcase event focusing on the latest innovations and real life solutions in mobile workforce technologies.

    Faxco lifted the New Partner of the Year and Scottish Print Partner of the Year awards.

    “It’s fantastic to see our new partners make such a big impact, the awards are really deserved,” said Mark Ash, Head of Print, Samsung. “Faxco has been working with us for around two years and have highlighted what can be achieved with a little bit of passion and hard work. I’m sure that the results that they have been getting by fully embracing our ethos, will spur our other partners on.”

    Faxco initially engaged with Samsung Print two years ago and has grown from a traditional photocopier supplier to one of Samsung’s most promising partners.

    Rapid growth

    The New Partner of the Year and Scottish Print Partner of the Year award winner, made the decision to truly embrace Samsung’s Connected Workplace vision in February 2015, and has enjoyed a rapid growth with over 400 A3 printer placements this year including the Android powered MX4 products.

    Working strategically with Samsung throughout 2015, Faxco has already enjoyed much success and helped many customers become more connected.

    Phil Genoe, Managing Director and Founder of Faxco Ltd said, “The past couple of years working with Samsung has been brilliant and to be named its New Partner of the Year and Scottish Print Partner of the Year is really amazing.

    “Focussing on the new MX4/MX7 Series was an easy decision for us as the devices are very desirable. For us and our customers, the Android platform has been a game changer as it brings together total integration and connectivity to future products including phones, tablets and other office devices.

    “We are fully behind and understand Samsung’s Connected Workplace vision and are looking forward to finding out what the next two years working with Samsung brings.”
