Visual Edge Makes Three Acquisitions

Visual Edge Technology of North Canton, Ohio, reported yesterday that it had acquired Technocom of North Carolina for an undisclosed sum. The firm says the acquisition expands Visual Edge’s footprint in the U.S. Southeast.

The company’s founder and president, Jim Riggins, will continue leading Technocom under the guidance of Visual Edge.

This past January, Technocom made two acquisitions of its own, expanding into the Salisbury (Marathon Business Center, Inc.) and Statesville (Document Imaging Solutions) regions of North Carolina, working with former owners Ken Crooms and Bruce Cook, respectively.

Together with Visual Edge, Technocom will be expanding upon its existing managed IT services.

Visual Edge also acquired Mercury Document Imaging for an undisclosed sum, marking the 31st acquisition for Visual Edge.

With three locations in Southern California and one in Chicago, Mercury Document Imaging provides copier/MFPs, document management software, managed print services, and shredding solutions.

Mercury President Joel Volk will continue leading Mercury as president and general manager while receiving advisory support from Visual Edge. The sales and service operations for Mercury’s customers and employees will also remain the same.

KenMark Office Systems Acquisition

On August 8th, Visual Edge also announced an agreement to acquire KenMark Office Systems for an undisclosed sum and merge it with its core New England company, Axion Business Technologies.

KenMark was established in 1983 by Ken Pedicini and Mark Brainson who had previously worked together for Savin Corporation handling the State of Massachusetts’ photocopier contract. KenMark has been a Savin dealership for over 30 years and has been awarded as a Savin Elite Dealer for the past 5 years.
The deal unites the two companies as Axion/KenMark that will serve the Greater Boston, Greater Worcester, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Southern Massachusetts marketplaces, along with Cape Cod and the Islands. Axion will be relocating its Cape Cod office as the two companies combine operations at KenMark’s Mashpee headquarters.
