Applied Imaging has expanded into Indiana with the acquisition of Advanced Imaging Solutions and Sands Office Equipment Service of Warsaw, effective 31 December 2021.
Advanced Imaging Solutions’ South Bend headquarters and their Ft. Wayne and Merrillville branches will begin immediately operating under the Applied Imaging brand, Applied Imaging said.
After purchasing A.B. Dick of South Bend in 1995, previous owner, Steve Klatt changed the name to Advanced Imaging Solutions and established the two branch locations. Like Applied Imaging, the company has been an authorised dealer for Ricoh, Canon, and HP.
With the acquisition, Advanced Imaging Solutions’ customers will now have access to Applied Imaging’s product and services offerings such as secure document shredding, telephony and carrier services, facilities management, custom information technology services, and much more.
“We’re really excited about the opportunity to work with Indiana businesspeople and to help them navigate the future with our innovative technology solutions,” remarked John Lowery, Applied Imaging’s President/CEO. “They’ll discover the best of both worlds with Applied Imaging, a company that maintains a family atmosphere yet is large enough to handle all their office technology needs.”
Sands Office Equipment Service of Warsaw, Indiana has also been acquired by Applied Imaging.
After starting the company in their home in 1992, Joe and Myra Sands eventually moved into a Winona, IN office in 1996. After becoming a Canon authorised dealer in 1997, the couple purchased a permanent facility in Warsaw and grew the business based on their customer-first philosophy, Applied Imaging said.
Sands’ employees will remain under the Applied Imaging brand, so their customers will continue to see the same faces. However, the customers will now have access to more manufacturers and more products and services provided by Applied Imaging.
Lowery added: “We welcome Sands’ customers and since both companies are authorised service providers for Canon, the transition will be seamless from a product and services standpoint.”
