Automated Business Solutions, a leading provider of office productivity solutions, including Office Equipment, IT infrastructure, IT support, and document management solutions, today announced that they have acquired Office Equipment Center, a company with a rich history specializing in business technology solutions.
“We look forward to welcoming all of the current Office Equipment Center employees into our Automated Business Solutionsfamily. Since our corporate cultures and values were consistent, the integration of all employees within both companies has already begun to take place. Our mutual clients will be able to access more comprehensive solutions, delivered by the same familiar people and with the same high quality standards they have come to expect and deserve!” stated Alan Albergaria, President of Automated Business Solutions.
Office Equipment Center (OEC) began servicing Connecticut businesses, municipalities and schools in the early 1970’s. It was purchased by Michael Ardry in 1988 who has grown the business from its roots as a typewriter and calculator company into a leader in the office technology sector. With Michael’s foresight, OEC began its Information Technology division in 2000. David Wilson joined OEC in 2005 to lead the IT division bringing new technologies to their growing customer base.
Michael Ardry, former President of OEC said, “We are extremely excited about joining the Automated Business Solutions (ABS) team. Their additional resources throughout New England will help us to better serve both our printer/copier and IT customers. In addition, because of ABS’s expanded product offerings, we will be able to provide exciting new technologies, products and services to our current clients.”
Alan went on to say, “The combined expertise of our two technology firms is outstanding. We will now be able to offer our superior line of products and services that fit the needs for companies of any size throughout CT, MA and RI!”
