Oyster is a well-established and trusted independent provider of managed print, document and IT services which has been successfully operating since 1985. The business is well known across the Midlands and further afield from the reputation it has built over the last 30+ years of assisting clients with bespoke technology solutions. Richard Harris, Managing Director, acquired Oyster in 2019 with a fresh perspective and ambitious growth plans.
The PEAC and Oyster partnership began in January 2020 and is managed by Karen Davies, Vendor Sales Manager at PEAC who has over 18 years’ experience within the industry. Karen commented that “PEAC have been working with Oyster for a little under two years and it has been fantastic to get to know Richard and the team during this time. The relationship has had a brilliant start and we’re excited to see how this develops over the coming years.”
Oyster is embarking on a journey to become one of the most successful businesses within the Midlands and to provide added value and support for every customer they work with. Richard commented “Oyster want to be known as innovative and forward thinking with a flexible approach. Ultimately, we’re driven by the options we can take to our clients and with PEAC offering us more than one product, we have the flexibility to suit the businesses we work with and with the support of likeminded partners like PEAC we are able to work towards our goals.”
Alongside the office in Broseley, Oyster have recently opened their new headquarters and distribution centre in Cannock. When talking about the development, Richard explained that “everything we invest in and the partners we deal with are right for the business long term. The new premises and relationships we’ve built provide the foundations and send the right message to clients and partners demonstrating the experience that comes with working with Oyster. It has always been a quality business throughout and I want to maintain that look and feel by doing business in the right way.”
Karen concluded that “The new headquarters in Cannock and the way Richard has taken Oyster to the next level is really impressive. We see Richard and the team as strategic partners, and we’re delighted to continue the journey with an ambitious business like Oyster.”
