CWG extend partnership, acquire Gilpez

May 15, 2018

Carolina Wholesale Group has announced a new partnership with Canon USA to become an authorised distributor of the OEM’s imagePROGRAF printers and supplies.

CWG, which encompasses Carolina Wholesale, Arlington Industries, and Digitek, will now carry the full range of imagePROGRAF hardware, includng Canon’s 11-colour PRO series, as well as all related supplies and media, in its six distribution centres across the USA.

According to p4photel, “resellers choosing to partner with CWG in the sale of imagePROGRAF will benefit from access to Canon and CWG sales and marketing resources, monthly promotional rebates, as well as Canon online training courses.”

Larry Huneycutt, CWG President, said: “Carolina Wholesale has valued our distribution relationship with Canon USA’s imaging equipment division for the past 35 years. The opportunity for Carolina Wholesale Group and our dedicated core of dealers to sell and support the growing large format printing and colour production demand is very exciting. We look forward to sharing and growing this business together with Canon and our dealers in the coming years.”

Carolina Wholesale Group has also recently announced the acquisition of Californian company Gilpez Office Products. The former family-owned company was run by Gil and Esther Perez with their daughter Marielena Perez-Erickson, as it had been for four decades, but its day-to-day operations, supporting office supply dealers and customers, will now transfer to CWG’s Arlington Industries.

“We have been trade partners with the Perez family for decades, have respected their business, and wish their family the best in the future,” said Huneycutt. “We welcome their loyal dealers into our family and our team looks forward to enhancing their product selection and sales solutions in the coming months.”
