Prosperity Plus Management Consulting, Inc. announced that it advised Patty Byrne, president of Superior Business Equipment, in the sale of the business to Kelley Imaging Systems, Inc. Superior Business Equipment (SBE) was founded in 1979 by Ted Schultz and the Harris VF Ranch, (Philip and Arlene Harris, Keith and Gayle Harris).
The business was acquired by long standing employee, Patty Byrne and her husband Rick in August 2010. Patty’s vision has been dedicated to increased high levels of customer satisfaction and support services. SBE operates with one common goal and that is to satisfy the customer. No sale is ever finished. SBE wants to grow the relationships they established when customers purchased technology. Kelley Imaging Systems (Kelley) is one of the largest privately owned office technology companies in the Pacific Northwest with 16 offices in Washington, Montana and Oregon. Uniquely positioned, Kelley is a single source provider for all of your office automation needs: document management solutions, copiers, MFPs, wide-format printers, managed IT and print services, and mail and distribution solutions.
Having become the partner-of-choice for hundreds of organizations throughout the Pacific Northwest, Kelley is able to deliver the best of both worlds — a single single-source vendor with the presence and responsiveness of a local company, backed by the strength and resources of the world’s foremost technology leaders. Patty Byrne, president at SBE, was quoted as saying, “The idea of bringing these two companies together just seemed to make sense. We operate on similar philosophies and share an intense customer focus. We expect SBE’s customers to benefit from the expanded product and service offerings Kelley provides.”
