Established 34 years ago, National Business Machines (NBM), one of Ireland’s leading providers of workplace solutions, software, services and managed print services, has announced major expansion plans for their business with a €750,000 investment. The move will position NBM as Xerox’s largest Irish Channel partner and marks a significant milestone for the company. Founded in 1985 as one of Xerox’s first European partners, NBM initially served businesses in Cork and Kerry, only to eventually grow their business footprint through organic and strategic investments over the years. “This marks another huge milestone in the history of NBM. A milestone for which I extend a huge well done and thanks to my dedicated and skilled team for making possible,” said NBM Managing Director Michael Galvin. “We have weathered two recessions and while other business downsized, we made some smart business decisions for NBM, and for our customers, that saw us continue to grow and flourish.” NBM is excited to welcome new members to its family over the next 12 months as it continues to provide customers with solutions that meet all their business requirements, from cost effectiveness and reliability to environmental efficiency and sustainability. “We are currently in the midst of a transition in this expansion project with Xerox, which entails integrating many new customers and taking on extra staff - all of which we aim to have completed by the end of this year.” All of this makes NBM the largest partner of Xerox in Ireland, and their only partner in the South. “I would particularly like to thank Xerox, who have supported us from day one.”
NBM ramping up for a bright future
In a business relationship that has proven mutually beneficial for both NBM and Xerox, it has been built and maintained through constant reliability and service over thirty years. “For more than three decades, National Business Machines has been a trusted partner of Xerox, with a track record of investing in its business to enhance client service,” says Mark McPhillips, Managing Director, Xerox. “This expansion in the Irish market will further strengthen both Xerox and NBM’s ability to offer a high-touch, locally accessible model to support clients and grow both of our businesses.” Headquartered in Cork, with offices in Limerick and Waterford, NBM will expand the business to cover all of Munster and South Leinster, and means they are now responsible for Cork, Clare, Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary, Waterford, Carlow, Kilkenny, Laois, Offaly and Wexford. The expansion is underpinned by the NBM investment of €750,000 to facilitate an expansion that will result in the creation of up to six new jobs and expected significant revenue growth in 2020. “The investment is in people and infrastructure, upgrading our offices and creating space for the significant extra business that will result from this expansion.” Given that NBM already have a number of customers in the UK, the possibility for further expansion beyond Ireland is a real possibility in the years ahead. “We work with a number of companies that are based here, but which have operations right across Europe, as well as having relationships with a number of Xerox partners in the UK. This road we are now on is ramping NBM up to another level, and certainly we are extremely excited by the business possibilities that lie ahead.”
NBM are currently planning a major double event in early 2020, showcasing the company’s product range and solutions, aimed at the production market, encompassing the printing and graphic arts industry, and NBM’s office market, comprising software and document solutions. More information to follow!
