M2 to fully merge with SCC
SCC today announces the formal merger of M2, the Managed Print & Document Services (MPDS) business it acquired in 2014, into its main business, creating SCC Managed Print & Document Services. M2 has enjoyed a string of successes since being acquired by SCC in February 2014, with consecutive record year-on-year results and a handful of growth milestones achieved, including the opening of a new HQ at Trafford Park in Manchester and the acquisition on Hobs On-Site last year. The acquisition of M2 enabled SCC to enhance its own services portfolio, with a bigger consolidated print presence provided by the combined business – a partnership which will now fall entirely under the SCC Managed Print & Document Services brand. James Rigby, Chief Executive of SCC, said, “Our acquisition of M2 has proved hugely successful and our shared capabilities have had a substantial impact on our overall service delivery capability. “Now is the right time to formally merge M2 into the SCC business as we continue to grow and evolve our combined Managed Print & 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.” As part of the merger, John Taylor, formally CEO of M2, takes up a new senior leadership role within Rigby Group, SCC’s parent company. Damien Baker has been appointed Managing Director of SCC Managed Print & Document Services.
