Applied Imaging Acquires 4th Since COVID Started

Applied Imaging has acquired Laser Resource; their 4th acquisition since the beginning of the Pandemic. While this technically didn’t occur in 2021, we didn’t learn of it until now, so we’re putting it on the 2021 list.

Last year, AI also picked up Kopy Sales, ACR and Upstream Office Solutions, making them one of the most aggressive companies with respect to growing their footprint in 2020.

Here’s the letter to Laser Resource customers:
