Ken Stinson, president, Usherwood Office Technology, commented on the news:

“The Repro transition is an exciting opportunity for Usherwood to continue our growth in New England. Repro has done a fantastic job caring for clients and people. Usherwood, as a third-generation family-owned business, appreciates that care as it fits perfectly with our culture. In an industry that is full of multi-billion-dollar manufacturers and venture capital-backed dealerships that are looking to acquire and cash out, Usherwood continues to grow while remaining fiercely independent and client-focused.  We are proud to have the opportunity to grow our presence in Vermont and New Hampshire, where they appreciate those traits in a business partner.”

Louis Usherwood, CEO of Usherwood said:

“The acquisition of Repro allows Usherwood to augment our client base in northern New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire. This is our second acquisition in the greater Burlington, Vermont area, and we are very pleased with the talent joining our company. The cultures at Repro and Usherwood are very complementary, and we look forward to providing world-class service to our new clients.”
