• Brachers’ Corporate team has represented managed print services operation, Smart Office Solution Ltd, on their latest acquisition of Kent-based ARC Office Systems Ltd.

    Smart Office Solution is one of the UK’s leading independent print management providers. It supplies businesses across the UK with printers, photocopiers and digital document management systems. Last year the business was recognised with a shortlisting in the ‘Reseller/Dealer of the Year (Turnover up to £5m)’ category at the PrintIT Awards.

    Established in 1994, Meopham-headquartered ARC Office Systems Ltd supplies, maintains and supports multifunctional devices and IT products nationwide.

    This latest multi-million pound deal is the third that Brachers’ Corporate team has represented the Smart Office Group on, following on from the recent acquisitions of both Document Office Technology Services Ltd and Chariot Office Automation. This latest valuable acquisition of ARC will see the business expand their reach even further into the print services sector.

    The deal was led by Brachers Corporate Partner Matthew Simmonds, supported by solicitor Kieron Cummins. Stevens & Bolton represented ARC.

    Matthew Simmonds said: “It was a pleasure to work with Gary and the team at Smart Office Group again on this latest deal. It is wonderful to support them in their ambitious growth plan and to see the business go from strength to strength.”

    Gary Smart, founder and CEO of Smart Office Group, commented: “It is a very exciting time for our business, and I would like to extend my thanks to Matt, Kieron and the team for all their hard work and expert guidance on completing this latest deal. This is the third acquisition that we have worked closely with Brachers’ Corporate team on, and I know that I can trust them explicitly to deliver for us.”
