SCRANTON, PA– Topp Business Solutions (TBS), one of the largest family owned office automation dealers in Pennsylvania, is expanding by creating opportunity through acquisition. The 60-year-old company has acquired Raystown Office Equipment Services, Inc. in Altoona, PA, a copier/printer sales and services provider for Konica Minolta. Raystown was founded in 1982 and serves the Central Pennsylvania region.
“This is truly a win-win for all involved. Our goal is to expand our focus and bring our excellent products and services to all current and future customers,” said Paul Falzett, Topp Business Solutions CEO.
Tim White, one of the owners of Raystown, states that “When two of the oldest and best office automation companies join forces, it creates positive results for both TBS and former Raystown customers going forward”.
TBS, now in its third-generation of family leadership; employs over 100 people, who operate out of its four locations in Scranton, Allentown, Montoursville and Altoona, generated $20 million plus in revenue during fiscal 2016. TBS has provided technology and office automation services to the Northeast, Central and Leigh Valley local industries for over sixty years. “We needed to further position ourselves as a leading force in the industry within the Central, PA marketplace. With the addition of Raystown, TBS will further solidify its position as the most advanced technological service provider available,” said Barry Fineberg, VP of Sales for TBS in the Central, PA region. “It is clear our customers are changing and expect more from their vendors. Having Raystown join us will certainly help us deliver on those customer expectations, “said Chris Falzett, Topp Business Solutions President.
