Konica Minolta Becomes Largest Printer/Copier Supplier in Alaska
Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. announced that it has acquired Frontier Business Systems of Anchorage, Alaska, making Konica Minolta the largest supplier of printer/copier products in the state. Founded in 1981 by president and CEO, Greg Niesen, and his wife and co-founder, Lenora, Frontier Business Systems owns and operates four branches in Alaska including its Anchorage headquarters, and locations in Kenai, Kodiak Island and Fairbanks.
With 42 employees, Frontier Business Systems services several of the state's largest accounts including the Kodiak, Kenai and Anchorage school districts. Greg Niesen will continue to head up Frontier Business Systems and the overall structure and operations of the dealership will remain unchanged. Over the past 24 years, the Niesens have built Frontier Business Systems into a first-class dealership and they were recently named the 2004 Small Business Persons of the Year by the Small Business Administration in recognition of their success.
"To remain a world-class leader in the industry, we are continually seeking opportunities to increase our market share across all regions," said Yasuo Matsumoto, president and CEO, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. "Frontier Business Systems shares Konica Minolta's vision and commitment to deliver quality, excellence and ongoing technological leadership to its customers, and is well established in its market."
"This acquisition gives the dealership a much larger presence and deeper resources to help us compete for business," said Greg Niesen, president and CEO, Frontier Business Systems. "We are thrilled to become part of the Konica Minolta family, and we are especially pleased that our customers and employees will not feel a difference in how the business is run."
