DEX Imaging LLC announced its acquisition of Copyforce, Inc., dba Gulf Business Systems, headquartered in Sarasota, Florida.
Founded in 1972 and later acquired by President/Owner Martin Hyde in 1997, GBS is a single-line Kyocera dealership that has proudly served Southwest Florida for over 50 years. When asked about the acquisition, Mr. Hyde said, “We are pleased to join forces with a company that shares our same value proposition for quality. DEX Imaging’s track record of innovation and service excellence is one of the many reasons why we chose DEX for this transaction. We have worked hard for over five-decades to build a legacy of quality, and now with DEX at the helm, we will be able to continue that legacy well into the future.”
DEX Imaging’s CEO, Dan Doyle Jr, said, “The acquisition of GBS delivers a seamless expansion for us in Sarasota, where we have had a strong market presence since 2005. GBS customers will now not only reap the benefits provided by DEX Imaging’s talented service teams, but will also have the advantage of choosing from a wider variety of best-in-class products and software solutions.”
GBS staff will join forces with DEX Imaging’s as one cohesive unit, offering a smooth transition for customers and employees.
