Integra in partnership with Totalpost
Integra Office Solutions has added mailroom specialist, Totalpost Services, to its portfolio of preferred suppliers.
Totalpost, established in 2002 and operating from centres in Warrington, Swindon and Cumbria, will provide members with access to a comprehensive mailroom solution from mailroom equipment and franking machine supplies to mail management and maintenance.
In July 2011 Totalpost doubled the size of its cartridge refilling factory to cope with the growth in the demand across the UK, Europe and the USA for recycled and refilled franking cartridges. As one of the UK’s biggest franking machine cartridge suppliers, selling in excess of 250,000 to customers around the world, Totalpost is well positioned to help members maximise the opportunities available to them within this sector.
Integra’s commercial director, Bob Davies, comments “We will be working with Totalpost to explore and develop this niche sector which has already seen tremendous growth. Every one of our members will have customers who are currently buying original franking machine cartridges at frighteningly high prices. The Totalpost cartridges will offer significant savings to those customers whilst also returning excellent cash margins to our dealers. It will also help to further strengthen their environmental profile.”
Totalpost also recently introduced X-Ray scanning technology to its comprehensive range of business continuity and disaster recovery services as part of a £300K investment to provide effective protection against hoax, criminal and terrorist mail for major clients including banks, building societies and mail order companies.
The device is able to scan 300 items per cycle, with a capacity of scanning about 15,000 items per hour and enables the detection of metals, powders, explosives and bio-hazards.
Totalpost Services Plc Managing Director, David Hymers MBE, adds: “We are delighted to be working with Integra and its members and believe that this partnership will offer numerous benefits for the end user.
“As one of the UK’s market leaders in franking cartridges, members will now be able to gain a superb margin in a niche market that is not too competitive and is receptive to the existing product range.”
Totalpost can also provide an off site, end-to-end mail management and processing package for major businesses whose internal operations are affected by staff shortages, business peaks, technical or software failure or emergencies such as fire and flooding.
