Applied Imaging Acquires Michigan’s Oldest Office Equipment Provider

Applied Imaging, one of the USA’s largest and most successful providers of office technology products and services, has acquired The Polack Corporation, effective October 1, 2021. All of The Polack Corporation’s locations will now operate under the Applied Imaging brand. The Polack Corporation is Michigan’s oldest office equipment dealer, founded in 1931 and led by fourth generation ownership. The Lansing-based dealership served 14 counties in Central Michigan and represented Ricoh as its primary manufacturer. Applied Imaging has represented the Ricoh product line since the beginning, so the transition for The Polack Corporation’s customers will be seamless according to Applied Imaging’s CEO/President, John Lowery. “We have thorough knowledge of the Ricoh product line and currently cover all the counties they operated in, so the transition for their customers will be extremely smooth,” said Lowery, Applied Imaging’s founder. “The only difference Polack customers will experience is now having access to the vast array of Applied Imaging’s products and services.”
