Cantec celebrates its coming of age

At Cantec, we are this year celebrating our coming of age, as it was back in 1994 that the company was first founded in Waterford.

We’ve since expanded greatly, particularly following our merger with Cantec Limerick four years ago. In all our 21 years so far, we have been dedicated to expert sales and servicing of printing, copying and scanning equipment. Recent years have seen our service grow to also include managed print, graphic design and print and document management services.

Cantec has always fostered a strong ethos of professionalism combined with friendliness to best support our customers across the country. Our customers rely on our products and depend on the excellent service provided.

We’re delighted to have received a great 21st birthday present by being nominated in the Services Category for this year’s Waterford Business Awards. We look forward to a busy and bright future for Cantec – and as you can see below, we’ve been looking back on our 21 years so far too.

Cantec original premises The Quay Waterford

This was our original premises at The Quay in Waterford, where our journey began. We’ve since expanded enormously, and you’ll now find our Waterford office in the Cleaboy Business Park, which is easily accessible from all directions.

We also have other premises all over Ireland.

Shay Tuohy established Cantec in Waterford in 1994

The man you see on the right here is Shay Tuohy, who along with his wife Gráinne, established Cantec in Waterford in 1994, in conjunction with Canon.

The photo was taken early in our partnership as Shay received official recognition of the excellent service we provided even then.

We’re still renowned for that excellence today.

Finally, here’s a photo that was taken in our offices around 1999 or 2000.

We’re proud to say that these three staff members are still valued members of the Cantec team today.

We’re also happy to note that both technology and fashion sense have vastly improved since then!
