Capital Document Solutions has been re-appointed as a successful supplier on the Scottish Government’s National Framework Agreement for Office Equipment.

Scottish Procurement has awarded a national multi-supplier Framework Agreement for an initial 24-month period due to commence in June 2013 when the existing framework expires. There is the option to extend the agreement by two further 12-month periods.

Capital, which has operations in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen, Inverness and Shetland, was appointed on the framework when it was first introduced in June 2009. It has been re-appointed having successfully undergone a series of stringent procedures.

Tom Flockhart, Founder and Managing Director of Capital Document Solutions, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this prestigious position for the second successive term. This appointment speaks volumes for the quality of our people and the high level of service we bring to all of our customers across the country.”

To date, the office equipment specialist has won over 30% of the public sector contracts awarded. Additionally, in May 2011 a Scottish Procurement survey of customer satisfaction placed Capital ahead of the other six approved suppliers in terms of quality of contract management and service delivery.

Capital is one of seven successful suppliers on the new framework. The scope of the agreement covers all office equipment products and services, including multi-functional devices (MFDs), photocopiers and printers.

With 200 staff at operations across the country, Capital is Scotland’s largest independent supplier of office equipment and document solutions. In January this year, it acquired Inverness-based Highland Office Equipment, increasing the company’s turnover to in excess of £20m. The acquisition puts the expanded company in a strong position to achieve its £30m turnover objective by the end of 2015.

In October 2012, the business won the Best Service honour at the Government Opportunities (GO) Awards Scotland for the high level and quality of its services to end users in the Scottish public sector.

Capital provides a range of office equipment and document management solutions including photocopiers, printers, scanners and software with comprehensive national maintenance and training support.

It has won contracts with large organisations and businesses ranging from government bodies, local authorities, oil and gas companies, the voluntary sector and a wide spread of universities, colleges and independent schools.
