Sam Elphick, director of Bury-based office technology firm Lex, has been awarded a much-coveted place on the 2022 Insider Media 42 under 42 list, which recognises leading entrepreneurs across Greater Manchester, Cheshire, and Lancashire.

Sam will now join the other finalists at a formal celebration evening on 19 October in Manchester, to recognise the achievements of the 42 business leaders and marking the 30th anniversary of the 42 under 42 event.

The family-firm, established over 40 years ago supports organisations locally, and further afield with office technology products such as multifunctional print devices, AV hardware as well as office interiors, business office equipment and supplies.

Operating from their premises in Bury, the family-led firm were pleased to report strong end of year financials which matched pre-COVID figures.

Sam comments: “The last three years have most definitely been memorable as I am sure it has for many business owners. Without mentioning the ‘C’ word too much I am pleased that we are finally back in a position of healthy trading, and I feel very privileged to receive such high-profile recognition.  I am so lucky to be supported by a fantastic team, who are the backbone of Lex.


“We continue to strive in offering nothing but exceptional service to our clients, whether they are a managed print customer, one that requires a new office fit out or a local school who require IT hardware.”

Lex expanded their headcount this year adding to their technical engineer team which will support their growing MIF estate across the North West and further afield.
