Edwards Business Systems was founded in 1954 in West Reading, PA, and is in its third generation of family leadership. We've grown from a mom-and-pop shop selling and servicing typewriters to adding machines to one of the largest independent office equipment companies in North America. With the acquisition of Virginia Copiers in 1993 (now Virginia Business Systems) the company consolidated and strengthened its Mid-Atlantic identity. Recent acquisitions of The Tamblyn Co. in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, PA, and Image Tec of Roanoke, VA, bring the total number of locations to twelve; one of which is the original location opened by Joseph and Alberta Edwards in 1954. The company provides service and support to a diverse roster of small, medium, and large-sized businesses throughout Eastern Pennsylvania and Central Virginia. Our EBS offices serve the Lehigh Valley, West Reading, Pottstown, Harrisburg, Lancaster, York, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the Pocono Region, and Lewisburg. While our VBS offices serve Richmond, Charlottesville, Lynchburg, Roanoke, New River Valley, Shenandoah Valley, and Hampton Roads.
Virginia Business Systems and Edwards Business Systems have been in business for over 65 years, making it one of the oldest independent dealers in the country. “Growing with our clients for over 65 years” is more than a slogan, it’s a commitment. Because we maintain this mindset, Virginia Business Systems is consistently named an “Elite Dealer,” a prestigious award for top dealers recognized by ENX magazine.
