RJ Young, an industry-leading business technology solutions provider, announces its acquisition of Unitech, a Mississippi-based dealer of digital imaging systems, including multifunctional devices that have the capability to copy, print, fax & scan. Unitech’s seven employees will join 650-plus RJ Young team members. All operations, area offices, and team members will remain local.
The acquisition marks RJ Young’s fourth transaction in 2022 (Syndesi Solutions of Athens, Alabama; Lewis Digital in Tallahassee, Florida; and Ethos Technologies of Roanoke, Virginia) and 12th in the past five years. This most recent deal is part of the company’s aim to expand its technology services into the Vicksburg, Mississippi, area.
“When we started Unitech 26 years ago, we made it our priority to value our customer and employee relationships and provide our customers with the highest quality customer service,” said Unitech Vice President Amy Stone. “We are excited about teaming with RJ Young to continue providing exceptional service and technology solutions that power businesses in Mississippi and the Southeast.”
Mike Dudek and Rich Wisniewski of Zygoquest Group served as the advisor to Unitech and its owners, Amy and Pete Stone, on the transaction.
Unitech’s success is directly tied to the success and satisfaction of its customers. They are a true business partner – by customizing solutions to support your business requirements. Unitech’s goal is to be the only source businesses will need to align imaging technology solutions with their unique business needs.
“At RJ Young, we have always admired the way Unitech has been able to deliver the same superior quality of service that we also strive for,” said RJ Young’s president and CEO Chip Crunk. “The partnership with Unitech will allow us to bring additional technology services to Vicksburg, Mississippi, area and beyond.”
Since the launch of RJ Young’s technology vertical in 2019, the company has grown that side of the business by 360%. Last year, RJ Young introduced the Modern Office – the company’s concept of being a one-stop for technology solutions – in response to the market’s evolving needs amid workplace shifts initiated by the pandemic. Since then, RJ Young has gone through a rebrand that speaks to the Modern Office, complete with a new website and logo.
