Acquisitions are coming thick and fast for Visual Edge Technology, as the company grows still further with the addition of JANCO and FastForward.
The company has revealed that the “Visual Edge Technology family is getting bigger, and this time, it’s a one-two punch”, as they announced the strategic acquisition of two industry-leading companies.
These purchases will “support strategic growth on the East Coast” for Visual Edge, as JANCO Business Systems is based in Wolcott, Connecticut, and FASTFORWARD Managed Solutions is located in Miami, Florida.
JANCO, a full service office equipment provider for over 30 years and one of Xerox’s top strategic independent partners, will join sales and support forces with neighbouring dealer, American Copy Service (ACS), also a Visual Edge company. Both organizations will continue under the leadership of Visual Edge-owned Axion Business Technologies.
JANCO brings “significant value” to the ACS partnership, as Xerox’s first and only Platinum Document Technology Partner in Connecticut to sell, install, and service Xerox equipment in schools, municipalities, and non-profit organisations state-wide.
“Xerox remains an incredible brand. The organic growth potential for JANCO is unlimited in the years ahead. Having Xerox’s brand recognition in our offering will open doors for our sales forces that may not have otherwise been an option,” says Robert Ferland, President of Axion Business Technologies, “We are very excited to bring them into the fold.”
1,379 miles to the south, the acquisition of FastForward Digital Solutions supports Visual Edge’s continued strategy to expand in the managed IT services (MITS) space. FastForward will remain in operation and now play a pivotal role in supporting fellow Visual Edge-owned WBS Technologies’ growing MITS business in South Florida.
FastForward is the third MITS acquisition within the Visual Edge strategy and will strengthen Visual Edge’s quest to be the largest US-based independent total office solutions providers.
Mr. Vazquez related “After becoming educated on Visual Edge’s “Go To” market strategy, along with taking the dynamics of our rapidly changing industry into consideration, moving forward with the acquisition was an easy decision. Many of the problems we were facing as a small business will be of no concern, with VET by our side. There is an entirely new outlook among all my key players and it was very reassuring to see Visual Edge be so welcoming & equally excited.”
“We are very excited to have them on board,” says Michael Brigner, senior vice president of business development for Visual Edge. “The owner of FastForward, Jose Vazquez, and his associates are very dynamic, young professionals.”
