Toshiba Recognizes Top U.S. Dealer, TGI Office Automation

Toshiba America Business Solutions (TABS), recognized eight of its top-performing dealers and international distributors during the company’s annual sales conference, LEAD 2013, recently in Orlando, Florida.

The awards ceremony culminated with the naming of Frank Grasso, chief executive officer of Brooklyn, NewYork-based TGI Office Automation as Toshiba’s 2012 Dealer of the Year.

TGI Office Automation has nine offices with locations in Florida, New Jersey, and New York.
