TAMPA — Staples Inc., one of the world’s largest retailers of office supplies, has agreed to acquire Tampa-based DEX Imaging.
Co-founded in 2002 by the father-and-son team of Dan Doyle Sr. and Dan Doyle Jr., DEX Imaging has grown to become one of the leading U.S. dealers of office equipment such as copiers, printers and fax machines. The company also manufactures its own line of toner cartridges, according to a statement.
“Staples will continue to strategically invest in companies that can bring added value to our customers in the form of enhanced products and services,” Staples CEO Sandy Douglas states in the release. “DEX Imaging has created strong relationships with their customers through exemplary service and tremendous industry knowledge in office technology.”
According to a press release, the Doyles and the rest of DEX’s executive team will continue to lead the company. Other terms of the deal with Framingham, Mass.-based Staples, which is privately held, were not disclosed.
“Over the past 16 years, DEX Imaging has taken great pride in our ability to continually offer quality products and services, and most of all, provide a superior customer experience,” Dan Doyle Jr. states in the release. “Being a part of Staples will allow us greater access to industry leading technology, and a world-class supply chain to accelerate our position as the premier North American print management provider.”
