Doing Better Business, Inc. Acquires Pro Business Systems.

Doing Better Business (, a leading regional provider of office technology, document management, imaging and managed print and IT services based in Altoona, Pennsylvania announced that it has completed the strategic acquisition of Pro Business Systems (, based in Boardman, Ohio.

The company will operate as Doing Better Business formerly PBS, and current President, Anthony Perrett and Vice President, William Hancher, will continue to lead the operations at this location.

According to Debra Dellaposta, CEO of Doing Better Business, Inc.

Both management teams agree that the acquisition will take both organizations to the next level of success.

Anthony Perrett, President of PBS, adds, “Doing Better Business brings real depth of capability for our clients with the infrastructure to provide best in class capabilities and services to our now combined base of well over 10,000 clients. It’s very positive news for PBS employees and our clients.”

“Over the past 30 years, PBS has grown to become a respected office equipment dealer in Ohio’s Mahoning Valley, with an excellent reputation for customer service excellence and innovative Stress Free IT solutions. Similarly, the Dellaposta family has been a leader in this industry for almost 50 years.  We’re very excited about our future,” says Perrett.
