Staples makes another acquisition

BY Dan Berthiaume

Staples continues to strengthen its service offerings.

The company has signed an agreement to acquire DEX Imaging, a leading independent document imaging technology dealer in the United States. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

In September, Staples agreed to acquire office-supplies company Essendant Inc. in a deal valued at nearly $1 billion. The deal was completed in January, with Essendant becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Staples.

“Staples will continue to strategically invest in companies that can bring added value to our customers in the form of enhanced products and services,” said Sandy Douglas, CEO, Staples. “DEX Imaging has created strong relationships with their customers through exemplary service and tremendous industry knowledge in office technology.”

Under the terms of the agreement, Dan Doyle, Jr., president and CEO of DEX Imaging, Dan Doyle, Sr., chairman of DEX and their existing executive team will continue to lead the business going forward.

“Over the past 16 years, DEX Imaging has taken great pride in our ability to continually offer quality products and services, and most of all, provide a superior customer experience,” said Doyle, Jr. “Being a part of Staples will allow us greater access to industry leading technology, and a world class supply chain to accelerate our position as the premier North American print management provider.”
