Doceo buys piece of Manchester Township accounting, technology firm
Printing and copier firm Doceo Office Solutions has purchased part of a Manchester Township-based accounting firm.
As part of the deal, York-based Doceo has acquired the information technology services division of Saxe & Associates Inc. Doceo declined to disclose the terms of the acquisition.
Ken Saxe, who founded Saxe & Associates with his wife, Elaine, has been hired as Doceo’s vice president of information technology services. In that role, Ken Saxe will work alongside Christian White, Doceo’s chief technology officer, in navigating and overseeing the company's information technology services.
Saxe & Associates will remain open and continue offering accounting services to nonprofit organizations in Pennsylvania and New York. Though Saxe will no longer be involved in the day-to-day operations, he will remain a partner at Saxe & Associates and Elaine Saxe will take the helm.
A graduate of of LeTourneau University in Longview, Texas, Ken Saxe has worked in technology for more than 36 years.
Doceo, which is best known for distributing and servicing copiers and printers, also provides information technology services to its customers. The deal with Saxe will allow Doceo to expand its IT offerings and cross-promote those services to its more than 2,200 copier and printer customers, said John Lewis, CEO and founder of Doceo.
"We understood that we had to dive even deeper into the world of IT to better serve our customers," he said in a statement.
Doceo opened its second location in Maryland and seventh location overall in June. That location joined existing branches in Hunt Valley, Maryland, as well as York, Hanover, Harrisburg, Lancaster and Carlisle. The company has 50 employees throughout its seven locations.
The firm also moved its Dauphin County office to 15 S. Houcks Road in Lower Paxton Township in June.
