Canon and Spectrum

Spectrum was founded under the name Spectrum Copiers back in 1983 as an approved Canon copier reseller. We realised that if your print stops, business stops, so we established Spectrum Copiers to help you manage your crucial documents that need printing, scanning or copying for your business to function.

As information, data, documentation and automation grew, so did organisations’ needs, so we introduced Information Management Solutions. These solutions allow you to capture, digitise, store and retrieve documents, secure your office and even automate your finance and other processes. With this broadening scope of offering, our name no longer reflected the business, so in 1999 we changed our name to IT@Spectrum and we have recently rebranded to just Spectrum.

We have now taken our relationship with Canon to the next level by joining forces to become the Canon Business Centre for the North East of England. We are now able to help organisations in the North East make significant savings in time and money by introducing highly-efficient, automated information management and print processes.
