RJ Young Acquires Advantage Business Solutions in Tennessee
RJ Young, one of the largest independent office-technology dealers in the United States, has acquired Advantage Business Solutions (ABS), a move it says will expand its printing, promotional products and end-to-end marketing-fulfillment services to help businesses improve management of their marketing collateral and workflow.
ABS, which is based in Nashville, Tennessee, is a supplier of print and promotional products, servicing clients nationwide. RJ Young says the acquisition will strengthen its end-to-end printing and marketing-fulfillment capabilities by adding ABS. It says the ABS acquisition will also expand RJ Young’s nationwide account base, and help it access key vertical markets.
“This acquisition demonstrates our commitment to aggressive growth through investing in key solutions that integrate with our current business, and further illustrates RJ Young’s commitment to customers by investing in services that they need in order to succeed,” commented Chip Crunk, president and chief executive officer of RJ Young. “ABS’s experienced team will add value for RJ Young customers choosing to outsource the management of printing, promotional products and fulfillment, and our in-house information technology, web-to-print, and document solutions will enhance the value for current ABS customers.”
RJ Young plans to assume management of ABS accounts, estimated at $3.5 million annually, and transition ABS’s 13 employees, by the end of this month. ABS operated for 16 years from at its headquarters at 6213 Charlotte Pike in Nashville.
