  • A.B. Dick Document Solutions and H.C. Berger Company Join the Visual Edge Technology, Inc. Family

    North Canton, Ohio – In an industry so rooted in service — where customer loyalty runs deep and employees become family — a hands-on dealer principal like Charlie Hiotas wasn’t looking for change with an acquisition partner, but rather an opportunity to secure the future for his customers and employees.

    For Hiotas, Visual Edge Technology, Inc. fit the bill.

    This week, Visual Edge welcomes Hiotas’ two Michigan-based dealerships — A.B. Dick Document Solutions of West Michigan, located in Grand Rapids, and H.C. Berger Company, in Lansing — to the family as Visual Edge’s 26th office equipment acquisition.

    “We’re as close to your traditional ‘old school’ dealerships as they come, with long-time customers and loyal employees. It was very important for me to join a company who shares the values I have as an owner and will uphold the commitment I have made to my customers and employees,” says Hiotas.

    “Visual Edge has a terrific reputation for letting businesses run the way they have always been run,” added Hiotas, who will continue leadership of both companies as president. “A.B. Dick is a small, twenty-five-year-old company, and H.C. Berger has been around forever. I have employees who have been with me for all of it.”

    With Hiotas at the helm, both A.B. Dick and H.C. Berger will continue to operate at their current locations with their current names. Both dealerships will serve to expand Visual Edge’s existing presence in Michigan, with Brady’s Business Systems of Grand Blanc, acquired earlier this year, and Premier Business Products of Troy, acquired in October 2016.
