United Carlton │ June 2019

Convex Capital exclusively originated, managed, structured and completed the sale of United Carlton, a customer-centric reseller of managed print services, to DMC Canotec, a B2B print and document service provider backed by Horizon Capital.

The acquisition provides the group with a much stronger presence in the North of the UK, building on its established position in Southern England following the acquisitions of Canotec, BCL, HP Technology and First Office. United Carlton has spent 30 years developing strong relationships with clients from its three offices in Gateshead, York and Warrington. The combined business will employ 250 staff supporting 4,500 customers.

Headquartered in Gateshead, United Carlton is the UK’s premier office systems and managed print solutions provider.
Founded in 1987, United Carlton provides print services, hardware and audio visual systems to SMEs, public sector organisations and schools, with offices in York and Warrington as well as the North East.

United Carlton celebrated their 30th anniversary in 2017 and in that time has helped more than 4,000 UK organisations to take control of their print spend, by providing a complete managed print solution.

The Convex deal team was led by Mike Driver, Nathalie Hodgkinson and Charlie Yates.
