POA News: We’ve Acquired Northwest Office Technologies

April 27, 2016

As a leading office management solutions provider in the West, Pacific Office Automation is proud to announce the acquisition of Northwest Office Technologies, an office equipment and technology solutions provider with offices in Spokane, Washington, and Post Falls, Idaho. The acquisition marks the opening of our fifth location in Washington and first in the state of Idaho.

With more than 25 years of experience in sales, service and cartridge remanufacturing, Northwest Technologies was an excellent fit to join the POA family. The acquisition will allow POA to provide direct service to existing customers in Idaho, and expand service areas in Washington State.

“We are thrilled about the acquisition, as POA already serves many customers in the Spokane and Post Falls areas,” said president of Pacific Office Automation, Doug Pitassi. “Providing direct service is a major factor in the decision to acquire Northwest Office Technologies.”

“Northwest Office Technologies couldn’t be more excited to become part of the POA family,” said Darren Bruhns, POA Branch Manager. “This acquisition will allow our company to continue serving our loyal customers, expand our offerings, and reach new markets.”

While changes are underway, the quality of service you've come to expect from POA will remain the same. Our team will continue its mission to serve as a premier dealer of the most trusted brands in the printing solutions industry, including Konica Minolta, Sharp, Canon and HP. Our full-service office solutions also include workflow management, print track and control, fax servers, data security and desktop applications.

Forty years ago, Pacific Office Automation was a small office that sold copy machines in Portland, Oregon. Today, we're the largest private dealership in the nation, comprised of more than 25 locations throughout Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado and Idaho. While we've experienced significant growth over the past forty years, our focus remains local. We strive to forge a true partnership with each of our clients, and to provide custom workflow solutions to match their unique business needs. We are also committed to supporting the communities in which we operate through corporate sponsorships that benefit local academics and athletics.

Our continued success comes from our belief in offering reliable, fast and secure service to every client. Work with our team of specialists to design workflow solutions that help to maximize your office's productivity. You'll see why our motto is: "Problem solved."
