It is Visual Edge’s seventh acquisition in 2017 and 17th during the past several years.

Benchmark has been serving Texas and New Mexico in the office solutions and managed provider service industries since 1994. Horn and his senior management team will continue in their current capacity in leading the company.
Visual Edge Chairman and CEO Austin Vanchieri related, “Benchmark Business Solutions is made up of high quality, dedicated professionals. This key acquisition of Benchmark will strengthen our market position across Texas and New Mexico. Benchmark enables us to focus on continuing to providing high quality managed network service solutions as well as office solutions sales and service to the small, mid-size and major account business community in Benchmark’s marketplace.”
