DBB completes Md. acquisition

Doing Better Business, a regional provider of office technology, document management, imaging, corporate communications and hosted IT services based in Altoona, has completed the strategic acquisition of Word Processing Services Inc. based in Hagerstown, Md.

This acquisition is the completion of the succession plan from Vincent and Marcella Ann Dellaposta to their three children, Debra, Beth and Joseph Dellaposta.

“Through hard work, dedication and special talents in service and finance, our parents were blessed to have built one of the most well-respected organizations in our industry. We are excited to continue their legacy of success,” said Debra Dellaposta, CEO of Doing Better Business, in a statement.

DBB began the year with the acquisition of Total Service in Latrobe, became certified as women-owned in January, acquired 2,000 customers and 11 employees from Ricoh Corp. in May, moved its Latrobe office to Greensburg in July, launched a new website in August, sold its TSI Office Products Division to W.B. Mason in August and opened a new office in State College on the same day it completed the acquisition of Word Processing Services, Dellaposta said.

“The best part was ending the WPS fiscal year with the highest revenue growth ever and maintaining an industry-leading customer satisfaction rating of 94 percent. We could not have accomplished any of this without the tremendous effort and support of all of our team members.”
