Madison, WI ‑ Gordon Flesch Company (GFC) has agreed to acquire Jim Gordon, Inc. (JGI), a leading Canon, Sharp and Lexmark dealer headquartered in Columbus, Indiana. Following GFC’s acquisition of Terre Haute-based IBE, this acquisition will help make GFC one of the largest office technology providers in the state of Indiana and solidify its position as the nation’s largest independent Canon dealer.
Like GFC, Jim Gordon, Inc. is a family-owned and operated independent office technology dealer. JGI was founded in 1973 by Jim Gordon and continues to be led by his sons, Mark, Glen, Bob and Rick. Headquartered in Columbus, Indiana with an office in Bloomington, the company is a dominant player in the southern Indiana marketplace representing Canon, Sharp, Lexmark and other manufacturers. “JGI is known for developing great relationships with their customers and providing top-notch technology and service, all while playing a prominent role in their local communities,” says Patrick Flesch, President of GFC. “This acquisition will not only expand our geographical footprint in the state of Indiana but aligns perfectly with our company’s values. We are excited to welcome JGI into the GFC family.”
In addition to sharing a similar corporate culture and history, GFC and JGI represent the same manufacturers and even use many of the same back-end systems, all of which will help facilitate a seamless integration. GFC currently has office locations in Indianapolis, Bloomington and Terre Haute, Indiana. Adding JGI’s Columbus and Bloomington locations will add significantly to GFC’s geographic territory and customer base. The merged company will be known as the Gordon Flesch Company and will serve business customers in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Ohio and South Dakota. GFC has been recognized as Canon U.S.A.’s largest independent dealership for the past five years, and JGI is a strong Canon dealer across its territory.
“We are proud of the legacy and culture of high-quality service we have built over the years at Jim Gordon, Inc.,” says Mark Gordon, President of JGI. “Joining the Gordon Flesch Company family is a natural fit and an exciting opportunity that allows us to continue building on that legacy.”
