The Gordon Flesch Company Expands in Northwest Illinois with Acquisition of ABC Office Machines
Madison, WI – The Gordon Flesch Company recently purchased ABC Office Machines, Inc. of Rockford, Illinois. The acquisition allows the Gordon Flesch Company to further enhance its customer base in northwest Illinois – extending the Company’s strong commitment to area business owners by providing local sales, service and support as an authorized Sharp and Canon provider of copiers, fax machines and printers.
With the acquisition of ABC Office Machines, the Gordon Flesch Company will gain 600 new customers and the assets of a well respected, privately owned office equipment dealer specializing in Sharp copiers and fax machines. The acquisition means former ABC customers will continue to receive excellent customer service and quality products, as well as new technology-based products and an expanded product line.
“With the acquisition of ABC Office Machines, the Gordon Flesch Company continues to strengthen our position in northwest Illinois,” said Tom Flesch, president and CEO of the Gordon Flesch Company. “As a family owned and operated business, the Gordon Flesch Company shares a similar business philosophy with ABC Office Machines. We welcome our new customers and offer them the Gordon Flesch Company commitment to service excellence, innovative technology solutions, our Technical Support Center, new services and additional product lines.”
The Gordon Flesch Company feels a responsibility to provide the best in brands and in service, but they also realize a responsibility to give back to the communities where they do business. This is why they created the Gordon Flesch Charitable Foundation. “The mission of the Gordon Flesch Charitable Foundation is to reach out to organizations that assist individuals and groups recovering from some form of disaster or help people that are suffering from some type of disease,” said Ann Myers, foundation president. Each year this foundation gives in excess of $100,000 to non-profit organizations.
All ABC field service representatives have joined the Gordon Flesch Company and will continue to be based in Rockford at their new office located at 6451 East Riverside Boulevard. They can be reached at (815) 633-3930 or (800) 333-5905.
