Based in Waterford, Cantec Group was established in 1994 as a photocopier dealership by
the parents of CEO Greg Tuohy and executive chair Eadaoin Carrick. Since then, the
business has grown with offices in Limerick, Mullingar, Dublin and Cork to become a Canon
Platinum partner and a recognised industry leader, delivering integrated hardware and
software solutions.

Commenting on the launch, Philip Brady, Head of Canon Ireland said: “Cantec is a
trusted partner that we have been working alongside for many years and share many of
the same values, including an ambition to deliver the best customer service and
innovation to our customers. By partnering together to create a Canon Business Centre
in Cork, we hope to deliver even stronger support to local businesses to help them grow
in these challenging times.”

Greg Tuohy, CEO, Cantec Group added: “Since we opened our doors in Waterford back in
1994, our close working relationship with Canon has been instrumental in our growth. We
have evolved from a local photocopier dealer, run by three family members, to a highly
diversified technology service provider, employing 54 people across 5 regional offices”.

“Agility is essential in business today, and we have responded really well to changing
conditions in the market. Canon Business Centre Munster is the culmination of what we
have built over three decades, combining the reliability of a local business with the powerful
resources of Canon. I am excited for the future, and looking forward to helping more
businesses across Ireland achieve their digital transformation objectives”.
