Global pushes ahead with acquisition plans


3 July 2007 — Tampa (FL): Global Imaging Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Xerox, has acquired Blackstone Valley Office Systems.

The acquisition provides office technology solutions through sales and service of MFPs, faxes, shredders and a full range of Xerox document management systems.


Blackstone will continue to serve mid-market customers in the Providence and northern Rhode Island areas as a satellite of Conway Office Products, a Global Imaging core company based in New Hampshire.


Michael Shea, Global Imaging’s president and COO, said: "This strategic acquisition of another independent dealer not only strengthens our growing market position in New England, but also continues our disciplined, ongoing effort to fill out our dealer network in the top 250 markets in North America."
