CONNELLSVILLE, PA (September 13, 2021) — On August 30, 2021, Ford Business Machines, Western Pennsylvania’s largest independent provider of office technology, acquired Kubinski Business Systems, an office technology company serving Erie County, Pennsylvania, and surrounding communities.
Kubinski Business Systems was established in 1938 and was family-owned and operated. “The decision to sell the business to Ford did not come without apprehension, but once I understood the owners of Ford Business Machines, their values, and their mission, the decision became much easier,” said Howard Kubinski, President of Kubinski Business Systems. “There were many factors that led us down this path, but we know that our employees and clients will be in the best of hands moving forward.”
Ford Business Machines has begun the transition process and Kubinski Business Systems’ clients have been informed that it will be business-as-usual until the process is complete, which is expected to be before the end of October.
“Ford Business Machines believes in our ability to serve Kubinski’s clients at the highest level. We know that the bar has been set high, but we have no doubt that we will live up to and even exceed their expectations.” remarked Johnathan Garlow, President and CEO of Ford Business Machines. “Our team is excited and prepared to get to work providing unparalleled customer experiences and an even faster service response time to our clients in northwestern Pennsylvania. We are looking forward to being a part of this family-like community and for the opportunity to serve the businesses that support it.”
