Office automation group, Itec has acquired a majority stake in Canon West Rand, in line with its strategy to grow its market reach and economies of scale.

The combined Itec Maximize business has around 2,000 clients representing a spread of small, mid-sized and large businesses on the West Rand of Gauteng.
Gavin Meyer, MD at Itec Connect said: “This transaction will certainly increase Itec’s market share in the West Rand region. We are confident that the deal will add enormous value for existing Itec customers, customers of the former Canon West Rand, and for the Itec Group as a whole.
“We are pleased to welcome Garth Upton – owner of Itec Maximize – and his team on board. They bring years of valuable experience to the business, as well as excellent relationships with a great pool of customers.
