CONNELLSVILLE, PA (April 8, 2022) — On April 1, 2022, Ford Office Technologies, western Pennsylvania’s largest independent provider of office technology, acquired Tri County Office Machines, an office technology company located in Bedford, Pennsylvania and serving Bedford County, Pennsylvania, and surrounding communities.

Tri County Office Machines was established in 1971 and was family-owned and operated. “After 50 years, the decision to sell the business did not come lightly. However, it was time to retire so I sought out the one locally owned and operated business that I believed represents our own values,” said Fred Shumaker, owner of Tri County Office Machines. “My priority was our clients that we worked hard to build relationships with, and after one conversation, I knew that Ford Office Technologies was a company that would value those relationships as well. Their principles and mission aligned with my own, which allowed me to feel comfortable with my decision and know that our clients would be in great hands.”

Ford Office Technologies has begun the transition process and Tri County Office Machines’ clients have been informed that it will be business-as-usual until the process is complete, which is expected to be before the end of May.

“Ford Office Technologies is excited to expand our services further east and provide cutting-edge office technology and unparalleled customer experiences to Tri County’s clients. We are confident in our ability to exceed their expectations,” remarked Johnathan Garlow, President and CEO of Ford Office Technologies. “We are looking forward to being a part of this community and grateful for the opportunity to serve the businesses that support it.”




Ford Office Technologies is a family-owned and operated office technology company with multiple locations throughout western Pennsylvania, serving clients in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, and Maryland. They are the largest independent provider of office equipment and managed services in the area and provide complete office technology solutions for businesses of all sizes.
