Sharp Expands Direct Sales Coverage with New Acquisition

Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America headquarters in Montvale, NJ.

Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation (SEC), reported  today that it’s expanding its direct regional sales coverage by acquiring American Business Machines (ABM) in Houston, Texas, for an undisclosed sum.

For the past 60 years, Sharp says ABM has provided a complete range of office equipment and solutions to businesses in Houston and the surrounding areas. As a newly created branch of Sharp Business Systems (SBS), the direct sales division of Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (Sharp), ABM will operate under the name of Sharp Business Systems – Houston.

The employees of ABM, led by founder Charles Brogna, have been asked to join the Sharp team. Additionally, the new Sharp branch will continue to offer seamless support to new and existing customers by providing the same high level of service that its customers have come to expect.

“We are confident that our 60-year history of outstanding customer service and the delivery of high-quality products and solutions will complement Sharp’s already existing excellent programs,” said Charles Brogna, who will continue on as branch general manager of the new Houston office. “Joining the Sharp Business Systems team will allow us to leverage all of the benefits that come with joining an award-winning, multinational company, all of which will be passed along to our current and future customers.”

“As the Sharp Business Systems team explored our options for expansion into the Houston area, ABM was a name consistently heard, and for good reason,” said Anthony Sci, senior vice president of Sharp Business Systems. “The company has an exceptional reputation as a strong document systems company in the area, which made it a logical choice to become the newest addition to SBS.”

Since its first branch opening in Arizona in 2006, SIICA has established 16 local Sharp Business Systems branches in 51 locations through growth initiatives within the organization.
