Since it's founding in 1977, Automated Office Systems (AOS) owners Tom and Jeff McGowan have expanded their service offering for businesses located in the Central San Joaquin Valley of California from simple document management to full-scale managed IT services. The company currently offers managed print and managed network services in addition to their multifunction devices, and document and mailing solutions.

Now, it's time for some M&A expansion. The company has expanded its IT services further by acquiring the assets of Complete Computing, a full-service computer networking firm with clients around San Joaquin Valley since 1987. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

Complete Computing was founded by John and Cindy Silva and offered a broad array of network services including backup and disaster recovery and preventative maintenance. The company is also BBB Accredited.

Although exact terms were not disclosed by either company, it looks like clients and employees of Complete Computing will be added to the portfolio and staff of AOS.
