Toshiba America Business Solutions Acquires Electro Imaging Systems, Inc.

Acquisition of the Livermore, Calif.-based office equipment dealer marks a return to strategic acquisitions by TABS

Toshiba America Business Solutions (TABS) today announced that it has acquired Electro Imaging Systems, Inc. (EIS), a leading independent office equipment dealer located in Livermore, Calif.

EIS, which does not currently sell Toshiba products and solutions, will become part of TABS' Toshiba Business Solutions (TBS) division. EIS is TABS' 56th dealer acquisition and the first since 2008. EIS was founded in 1994 as a reseller of Gestetner copiers and multifunction printers. Today, the company offers document and network management solutions, managed print services and office phone systems in addition to the sales, service and support of office printing systems.

“We are very pleased to add a quality organization like EIS to the Toshiba family,” said Scott Maccabe, president and CEO of Toshiba America Business Solutions, Inc. "Toshiba is continuing to target strategic acquisitions to expand Toshiba Business Solutions in select U.S. markets. We expect EIS to be the first of several acquisitions designed to help fuel our ambitious growth strategy."

Formed in 1999, Toshiba America Business Solutions operates in over 100 locations throughout the United States and Latin America and provides a variety of award-winning products, solutions and services to more than 100,000 clients. 

"When for personal reasons I decided to sell EIS, I looked for a company that I believed would build upon the solid foundation that we've created here," said Qasim Tarin, former owner of EIS. "Toshiba has an excellent reputation for growing its acquired dealerships and providing employees and clients with excellent support and superior products. EIS' employees and clients are in great hands with Toshiba."
