Founded in 1990 and headquartered in San Diego, California, Copy Link offers a range of business products and document solutions from office printers to document management, print management software, and on-site IT services.

The company’s founders, Kevin and Kimberley Marshall, will remain in their leadership roles, the company said. Copy Link will roll under CBE Office Solutions – which FTG acquired in August 2019 – to leverage shared resources but will continue to operate independently, FTG said.
