HISTORY OF PROSOURCE
Prosource was founded as Cincinnati Copiers in 1985 by David Russert and Ted Cook. Ben Russert joined the management team just three years later and now resides as Chairman and a second-generation owner of the business. In 1990, the document hardware and solutions company expanded to Dayton and became Pro-Copy Technologies. Its rapid growth and advancements in technology prompted rebranding and a new name in 2005: Prosource.
Prosource works with businesses to identify and respond to any document need, whether the solutions involve copiers, printers, fax machines, imaging software or other technology. It provides the most cutting edge document imaging and management solutions that are available on the world market, with solutions that are designed to assist its clients to become more efficient, productive, and competitive.
To continue with the vision of being a total document management provider, Prosource acquired DocuVision in 2011. This acquisition enabled Prosource to expand its document solutions offerings. Prosource’s product offerings ranges from small MFP’s to professional production print devices. Prosource is in the top five largest independent Konica Minolta Dealers in the United States. In addition, Prosource also carries the full line of Lexmark, Muratec, and Toshiba products, as well as OnBase, Objectif Lune, Equitrac, and Open Text software solutions. In 2013, Prosource acquired Infitech, an IT solutions company based in West Chester, Ohio. In 2015, Prosource acquired Alternative Computer Technology (ACT), enhancing their internet security capabilities, as well as hITech Computer Solutions based in Greendale, Indiana. In August 2015, Prosource expanded their geographic footprint by acquiring Aaron’s Business Solutions, an office technology and services company, in Huntington and Charleston, West Virginia. Prosource now provides Office Equipment, Document Automation, and Technology Solutions for customers across Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and West Virginia.
Power up with Prosource.
