Higher Information Group (HIG) announced on Thursday that it has completed the acquisition of Elmira, New York-based Office Equipment Source (OES)
HIG, based in Harrisburg, offers a number of information management services including office equipment sales, document storage, marketing and design and IT.
The company purchased OES, a family-owned technology company specialized in office equipment, print management solutions, facility management and managed network solutions, for an undisclosed amount of money.
“OES is an exceptional company offering a range of document technology solutions with an outstanding reputation for service and commitment to the community,” said John Frisch, owner and president of HIG. “The partnership will supercharge our capacity to serve customers and accelerate our mission of helping businesses transform their day-to-day operations so they can focus on what matters most.”
As part of the deal, HIG said that it expects to retain all existing OEW sales, services and support staff. The company’s principals Mike Mitchell and Drew Mitchell, will continue with the company in executive roles.
“OES and the Mitchells are extremely proud to begin this new journey with HIG,” said Drew Mitchell, the company’s vice president of operations. “We believe this opportunity will empower our customers and our employees to deliver the most extensive and up-to-date service portfolio in the industry.”
The acquisition extends HIG’s presence across the southern border of central Pennsylvania and east to Philadelphia, throughout north central Pennsylvania and into central New York.
