Scotsys, has agreed to sell its Edinburgh retail business to Guildford-based reseller, Cancom.

Scotsys, which closed down its Glasgow store just a few months ago, now says it intends honing its focus on providing services and solutions to public sector clients and businesses, particularly in the SME space. 

Cancom gains its first store in Scotland to complement its existing locations in Brighton, Cambridge, Guildford and Kensington.

Graham Bucknall, director of Scotsys said: "We have identified that our main areas of focus for the future are the public sector (particularly the education sector in Scotland) and the SME market. These areas are where the majority of our business is currently and where we see our expertise lying."

Bucknall confirmed that his company's existing in-store staff will immediately become Cancom employees.

Max Wright, managing director of Cancom said: “We have always respected Scotsys as a major player in the education and public sector markets and now they have chosen to concentrate more on these areas, it makes sense to sell the retail aspect of the business to us, as this is the area in which we now specialise.”
