This agreement shows Canon’s commitment in building a successful long term presence as a leader in the Information Management and BPO market segment, supporting Italian companies in their journey to digitalization.
“This important investment on the Italian market is a fundamental step in Canon Italy’s growth strategy that the company recently introduced”, said Enrico Deluchi, Managing Director, Canon Italy. “We accepted the challenge to invest in Italy because this is an important signal of confidence in our market. We are also convinced that we can bring a valuable support to companies and the Public Sector in the digitalization process”.
IDM was founded in 2001 and is positioned among the first Italian companies that can guarantee a direct, total and integrated document and information management outsourced process, for both printed and digital documents. IDM success is based on the quality of its services, on a strong partnership strategy and on a solid entrepreneurial approach.
“Together, Canon and IDM, will be a point of reference for the Italian market and will be in a position to offer solutions for customers that are based on Canon’s innovative technologies and on IDM’s broad base of services”, said Enrico Deluchi. “Information and Business Process Management is a growing market in Italy and Canon is determined to become the leader in this segment in our market. IDM will play an important role in this strategy.”
Mauro Calcagnini, IDM’s General Manager said: “I’m very pleased with this acquisition, which offers great possibilities for IDM’s continuous growth, allowing us to continue to innovate thanks to Canon Italy’s expertise and market knowledge.”
The acquisition is expected to be completed in February 2015 and IDM will continue to operate as a standalone company in the Canon Group.
