ABS UK Ltd specialises in document production, print and document management, supporting a network of thousands of modern print/scan/copy devices to schools, businesses, charities and churches in Calderdale, Kirklees and across the north of England.
Our ongoing service ensures that all of our clients’ print and document solutions operate efficiently and effectively. We install user-friendly software to manage users and print devices, which generates print cost savings in excess of 30%. Even for SMEs this represents a return on investment in the thousands, while our education clients see the benefit of similar savings, all valuable in an era of increasing pressure on margins and budgets.
In 2008 ABS diversified and established an independent copier solutions brand, ABS ICS, which now turns over £1.1m. The company helps smaller photocopier suppliers, 170 of which are our customer, who often struggle to meet the strict minimum order regulations of large copier manufacturers. ABS ICS stocks over 100 machines, consumables and parts in its Halifax warehouse and is geared up to support its customers via a small, but dedicated team of four personnel
Our charitable arm the ABS Foundation was set-up in 2013 to support local, grassroot charities world-wide. We regularly fundraise for local charities and in Christmas 2014 we supported Bradford Nightstop, a charity which provides a warm safe place to stay for young homeless people of the Bradford district, with a night on the streets, raising over £2,000. In 2017 we will support a charity in Kirklees or Calderdale to align with our new company-wide incentive. Winners of the incentive will be expected to do 3 days (full pay) volunteer work with this charity.
ABS Foundation funds depend on performance of ABS UK and ABS ICS. This means all ABS staff play a part in the funds available for the Foundation. For every new hire agreement/purchase ABS UK donate £20.00 to the ABS Foundation and for every machine/unit sold ABS ICS donates £2.50. On average this equates to between £600 and £800 per month in donations.
