Located at 12 Dockgate Merchants Road

Servicing Connacht and surrounding areas for over 25 years!


"When you met with us initially we knew we needed to source a laser printer but we were unsure which type or model might suit us. We were very grateful that you helped us make that decision, and took the time to understand the needs of our organisation, and based on that, advise us on the correct size and type of printer.

Getting a trial period without commitment to buy was great, and what really impressed us all was the amount of printing that we got out of the cartridges. The quality of the print was excellent and the printer cartridges are easily replaceable even for any non IT inclined individual!

We have also found that the Cantec staff have been very helpful and the after sales service which is most important has been excellent. We would be delighted torecommend Cantec (Galway) to other organisations and businesses".

I have been a customer of Cantec (Galway) for more than twenty years first with the Galway Centre for the Unemployed and now the Local Employment Service and they stand out as a supplier.

They have taken the time to know the organisation I work for; they understand our needs and our financial situation and always come up with a solution that takes both of these facts into account.   They have a very ‘can do’ attitude. I truly feel I have never spent an unnecessary cent on their products and services over the years.

Aidan’s knowledge of his business is encyclopaedic and sometimes overwhelming but this has only ever worked to our advantage.   His good humour spills over into the service team who are prompt, efficient and timely.

I am very happy to recommend Cantec.

"I first encountered Cantec when our office photocopier started to give us trouble. We were out of maintenance contract with our previous supplier so wanted to get someone local that we could rely on at short notice. Cantec was this company. From the initial meeting they were honest about our photocopying needs and what we needed. It wasn't just about selling a machine but selling something that we needed and would work for our needs.

We have our new photocopier for 6 months now and we couldn't be happier with its performance.

The employees in Cantec are also so helpful, no matter the question.

I couldn't recommend them highly enough and know we will be customers of Cantec for many years to come." - Fiona Collins. 

"We recently used 2 No. Ineo 454e printers/photocopiers/scanners which had been on short-term rental from Cantec for the delivery of a specific project. It was a very pressurized environment for us to deliver this project and Bruno Dias was appointed by Cantec to ensure that both machines worked to their optimum and that all consumables were available at all times. This included toners, paper supplies etc.

Bruno attended at the site early each morning and late each evening. He checked the machines, consumables and paper stock on each occasion. When an issue did arise with one of the machines, he took immediate remedial action and had the problem resolved in a very short space of time.

He was highly efficient, courteous and at all times most accommodating, to the point of making his mobile number available if we had any concerns, outside of office hours.

" - Brendan Rudden - Project Engineer.
