We are selectec

So what about us? We are a diverse bunch here at Selectec, but some things are universal. We all share a strong work ethic and enthusiasm for good customer service. We have big ambitions for our company and are committed to working hard for our partners.

Selectec was founded by two friends with different expertise who had an idea or two about changing the world of copying. They were soon up and running out of a garden shed and a third bedroom. Since then, the company has grown significantly. 40 years on and we have outgrown four different offices and the shed is just used to store a lawnmower but we’ve held on to the energy, spirit and our core values: be honest, listen to our resellers and always do the right thing. That’s how we want to be known. To achieve this, we have a team of dedicated sales, support and admin staff promoting innovative software across the globe, backed up by a team of talented developers who can add further value by providing integrations or bespoke solutions to match customers’ requirements, often exceeding their expectations.

So, sit back, relax and allow us to introduce some of the people who make up the rock star team.

All Stories

Selectec have proved to be a great company to partner with. I have worked with Selectec for 7 years now, and am always impressed with their professionalism and eagerness to help. Both with sales and technical support, Selectec have always strived to give any information that I need, and gone above and beyond when I’ve needed a little extra help. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
