Advantage Copy Systems, a Sulphur Springs business that provides office machines and copier-related consumer products, has been acquired by Datamax, which provides office equipment and technology solutions in Arkansas and Texas.
Advantage was established as a Canon dealer in 1992. In 2006, Sulphur Springs residents Dan and Paula Brown purchased the company.
Datamax Inc. President Barry Simon, in a release earlier this week, announced the acquisition of Advantage, one of two acquisitions by Datamax in the last few months.
“We are very excited about this new association and all the advantages that it will provide for the company, the employees, and most of all you, our customers,” said Advantage Copy Systems President Paula Brown. “We will continue to offer you the personalized customer service, which we feel is the most important factor in maintaining a good business relationship, as well as the ongoing growth of the relationship.”
The same people will continue to serve Advantage Copy Systems customers in the future, but will be able to offer more services. The business’ office will remain in Sulphur Springs, according to Brown.
The newly-expanded organization will offer many multi-function copiers and printers, desktop printers, wide‐format printers and digital production equipment, document management/workflow solutions, managed print services, managed network services, IT consulting services, and unified communications to “‘holistically’ address a broader spectrum of business technology challenges,” according to the news release.
“This acquisition will offer additional synergy and thought leadership to ultimately benefit customers in all of the markets we serve. Although business alignment is a major factor in such an acquisition, what we’re equally excited about is our cultural alignment,” Simon stated in the news released. “We believe culture trumps all. At Datamax, we aren’t satisfied with customers or employees just being satisfied. Our mission is much bigger. We set the bar very high regarding the experiences of our customers, as well as the aspirations of our employees and the needs of our communities. Unless we’re Creating Raving Fans of each of them, our job is simply not done.”
