Danvers, MA – December 1, 2018 - Archimedia Solutions Group, a company dedicated to on-site print management solutions for architects and engineers, today announces the acquisition of Nashua, NH based Imtek, a highly respected supplier of wide format printing equipment and related supplies with an exceptional reputation for service. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The acquisition of Imtek allows Archimedia to expand its geographic reach as well as bolster its sales and service organizations. Archimedia, which acquired BL Makepeace in 2017 sees Imtek as a natural extension of its equipment dealership and service business. Also, it helps Archimedia to apply its progressive, solution-driven On-Site Print Management model to a much broader client base.
Archimedia was formed in 2006 and offers on-site print management including cost recovery solutions, technical support, and extreme responsiveness. Imtek, founded in 1988 by Lee and Roberta Harrington is a servicing dealer of wide-format printing equipment from Ricoh, Hewlett Packard, Canon, and KIP.
“Based on the similarity of our missions and the expertise Imtek has developed, we are honored to bring our two companies together for continued success serving the architectural, engineering and construction markets,” said Mark DiPasquale, co-founder of Archimedia. “Our distinctive traits are nearly identical from high levels of service and responsiveness to the implementation of solution-driven innovations.”
“We’ve been fortunate to have been able to build Imtek over the years into a company with great employees and very loyal customers. Joining forces with Archimedia is exactly what we need to bring our business to the next level,” said Lee Harrington of Imtek. “We’ve had a great working relationship with Mark, Jane, and the Archimedia team over many years. We’re excited to now be working side by side with them.”
“We are very excited to have Lee, Roberta and the entire Imtek team join our growing company,” said Jane Simmons, co-founder of Archimedia. “What they bring to the table will help us build on our fierce commitment to providing outstanding service to the A/E/C community.”
Today’s acquisition will create a combined professional services team of close to 70 employees operating in 30 states with a current primary service area of suburban and metropolitan Boston and all New England states.
Archimedia Solutions Group was formed in 2006 by Mark DiPasquale and Jane Simmons as the only company exclusively dedicated to On-Site Print Management services for architects and engineers throughout the United States. Archimedia provides clients with cost recovery solutions, technical support, and exceptional customer service as well as the sale of HP DesignJet, HP PageWide, Oce and Canon equipment through its Makepeace operation.
