Gordon Flesch Co. signed an agreement to acquire Advanced Systems Inc., an independent dealer in the office technology industry with offices in Iowa, Minnesota and South Dakota. The combined company will be the largest independent office equipment dealership in the Midwest.
The merged company will be known as the Gordon Flesch Co. and will serve business customers in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Ohio and South Dakota. In addition to similar service and technology offerings, GFC and ASI share similar cultures.
