In an effort to expand its support for businesses and provide greater levels of service in the North and South Carolina regions, Canon U.S.A., provider of digital imaging and software solutions, has acquired the assets of Tereck Office Solutions.
Tereck, based in North Carolina, will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A, the company announced. Tod Pike, currently president of Canon Business Solutions, will serve as president of Canon Business Solutions-Tereck, with Ed Ecker, former president and owner of Tereck Office Solutions, remaining with the business in an advisory role.
"Tereck has built a tremendous reputation for providing industry-leading imaging and document management solutions and support to companies in the North and South Carolina regions, and we are excited to bring Tereck into the Canon family," said Joe Adachi, president and CEO of Canon U.S.A. "We take pride in offering the most comprehensive array of office imaging solutions, and this acquisition will enable us to provide even greater levels of service to businesses and end users in the Carolina regions."
Tereck is an independent value-added reseller of document imaging and print solutions, including imaging hardware and software, printer fleet, and facilities management services. Founded in 1997, Tereck grew into a prominent provider in the imaging market and was ranked by the Triangle Business Journal among the 50 fastest growing companies in the Triangle Region. The company currently has more than 70 employees between two offices.
"We are extremely pleased to join the Canon family and look forward to providing our customers with the best hardware and software services for their business needs," said Ecker. "Through this acquisition, we will be able to offer our customers an even more robust portfolio of solutions while also positioning Canon for continued growth in the Carolina regions."
Canon expanded its services on a much broader scale earlier this year, collaborating with FedEx to create a network of printing and imaging capabilities, giving customers access to new technologies and an extensive machine fleet. The network will provide benefits such as new devices, including Canon's ImageRunner Advance multifunction products (MFPs) and ImagePress digital press systems. In addition, advanced software tools from Canon will enable FedEx Office employees to monitor the installed device fleet to help ensure optimum working status and reduce potential downtime delays.
