Cartridge Expert has signalled plans to move into North America later this year, with managing director Ian McCue describing it as 'big' opportunity.

McCue, who sat down with PC Retail this month to talk about his company, revealed that the firm has been eyeing up the US, Canadian and Mexican markets for some time.

"Currently, we're basically confined to the United Kingdom and near Europe – such as France, Belgium, Holland, and Italy," commented McCue. "There is a substantial global market but we have yet to get into that, including the USA.

He also revealed that the firm has no intentions of stalling its growth in Europe though. "What we’re doing right now is talking with some prospective partners to expand dramatically through the EU, and the partner also has a base in the United States, so we will be looking to expand there too, which represents quite a massive expansion."
