Pacific Office Automation Acquires VOIP Company

Pacific Office Automation (POA) is proud to announce its recent acquisition of Trans-West, a voice over IP and data solutions provider in Phoenix, Ariz.

Making the top spot for Telephone Equipment and Systems in each of the last three years on the Ranking Arizona poll, Trans-West has been a leader in network solutions for more than 35 years. With a reputation for unparalleled service and strong partnerships, the company’s acquisition will serve to expand Pacific Office Automation’s suite of office solutions.

“The Trans-West acquisition opens new doors for POA, especially since we already have a major presence near Phoenix,” said Pacific Office Automation President Doug Pitassi. “By expanding our offerings in VoIP/on-premise phone services, we’ll be able to better serve our existing customers and reach new ones.”

“The main goal of this partnership is to enhance POA’s overall product offering in VoIP services through Cat5 and Cat6 cabling, complete Wi-Fi solutions and on-premises telephones,” said Adam Pritchett, POA’s Southwest Regional Manager. This will give the Oregon-based office solutions company another channel through which to provide the best solutions to its customers. For Trans-West, it means growth and new opportunities for its employees they might not have had otherwise.

“This acquisition allows us to expand our footprint and provide a local presence in many more cities across the country,” said Herbert C. Rosen, founder of Trans-West. “With POA’s reputation, longevity, culture and size, it was a perfect fit. Problem solved!”

POA looks forward to reaching new customers through its growing service offerings. In addition to VoIP, the company will continue to offer printers, copiers, IT solutions, managed print services and more to its customers across the West Coast.
