Pacific Office Automation (POA has acquired Fenton’s Office Solutions (FOS), a Konica Minolta and Epson family dealer in Idaho Falls that serves Southeastern Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana.
The transaction closed last week and was announced to customers on 10 April. This expands POA’s Konica Minolta footprint into three new markets for the company.
Now part of the Pacific Office Automation family, FOS customers and the region will have immediate access to an expanded product and service line including IT services and software, backup and recovery products, cybersecurity, mailing systems, telephony services (Voice Over IP), commercial security cameras, electric vehicle charging solutions, and many more.
“This is a great partnership, and POA offered the best path to ensure our culture, our benefits, and our compensation were the best for FOS employees,” said Vernon Fenton, founder and CEO of FOS. “Doug hired all of my employees and that’s so important because our customers know them really well, and they will be the ones to push POA forward.”
As part of the transaction, Vernon Fenton will join POA in a consulting capacity and all employees of FOS will become part of the POA team.
“We are happy to welcome Vernon and his team to the POA family,” said Doug Pitassi, president and CEO of Pacific Office Automation. “FOS has been on our radar for a long time because they fit the family-oriented, customer-centric culture we foster at POA.”
