American Solutions for Business Announces Acquisition
As American Solutions for Business (ASB), Glenwood, Minn., ended its fiscal year on June 30, 2011, the company had many reasons to be thankful. Besides marking its 30th year in business, ASB has once again returned to sustained profitability. Furthermore, American Solutions for Business was named the nation's number one distributor last month by Print Solutions magazine.
Having successfully completed its new ERP (enterprise resource planning) system, ASB can once again proactively focus on sharing the American Solutions for Business story with salespeople and companies in search of positive opportunities for change.
This week Larry Zavadil, CEO of American Solutions for Business, announced the agreement between ASB and a division of Advance Business Graphics (ABG) of Mira Loma, Calif. The 10 sales associates and support personnel joining American are located in Orange, Calif, Hoffman Estates, Ill., and Irving and Bellaire, Texas. These offices have focused on the health care industry, credit unions and other traditional transactional business. In addition to the 10 associates, five customer service individuals will make the transition to ASB. In 2010, fiscal sales for the ABG group were approximately $8.4 million.
"We're pleased to welcome the ABG group to the American Family," said Zavadil. "With their expertise and skilled customer service support, we see significant opportunities for growth."
Based in Glenwood, Minn., American Solutions for Business is an industry-leading distributor of printing, promotional products, e-commerce, office supplies and strategic marketing solutions.
