Counselor Top 40 distributor American Solutions for Business (asi/120075) has acquired three individual companies located in Florida, Ohio and Nevada in an effort to expand its national presence. "American has attracted these businesses because of a common passion to be customer-driven, solution-oriented and to provide the best service in the industry," said Larry Zavadil, ASB's founder and CEO. Terms of the deals were not disclosed. The businesses acquired include:
- Alpha Print and Promo, located in Tallahassee, Florida, a 30-year-old provider of business forms, full-color printing and advertising specialty products.
- Performance Forms, Inc., which was founded in 1989 and provides print, marketing and promotional products to clients in Ohio and throughout the country.
- Allied Products of Las Vegas, founded in 1985 as a distributor of computer components but later shifted to exclusively providing print services to clients in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
"As we aggressively approach the marketplace," said Zavadil, "we're looking for that sales associate who wants to control his or her own destiny; and we're seeking distributorship owners wishing to sell, transition or grow their businesses. Our environment supports all models currently active in our industry, and we're pleased to welcome these three successful groups to the American family."
