On July 8, Essex Business Machines Ltd (EBM) welcomed local businesses and clients to the official opening of its new offices and
showroom in Witham, Essex.
Local MP Priti Patel cut the ribbon on the new premises and unveiled a plaque commemorating the occasion.
This is not the fist time Ms Patel has cut the ribbon for EBM. She performed the same duty five years ago when EBM moved into its previous premises. Since then, the company has grown by 150%.
Before the official opening ceremony, guests enjoyed a series of talks by key partners including Ricoh’s Nick Smith, who outlined the benefits of a print audit; Tim Bland from Grenke Leasing Ltd, who explained how leasing can avoid ‘copier graveyard’ syndrome, where old and broken devices take up ever more space and money; Lexmark’s Steve Pearce, who showed how Google Cloud integration can improve collaboration; and Brett Lewis from Konica Minolta Business Solutions Ltd, who demonstrated how MPS can save paper, cut costs and reduce one’s carbon footprint.
On the day, EBM MD Mick Bailey was presented with a certificate from children’s charity Brainwave, for which he has been an ambassador since 2007. Brainwave delivers home-based therapy and exercise programmes to help children with disabilities achieve greater independence.
