Sustained Growth for Over 3 Decades

Automated Business Solutions is one of the largest independently owned dealers in New England. Photo taken in 2018: Alan Albergaria, former President who tragically passed in March 2020 (center), and Robert Maceroni, Vice President (right), speak with Tom Laport, former Vice President of Sales who retired as of December 2023 (left). Albergaria and Maceroni started the company in 1992 without a customer and have since grown the business to more than 4,000 clients.

As for the often-repeated statement that we’re moving to a paperless society, Albergaria had said he’d heard that before. “They’ve been talking about it since we’ve been in business.”

Not Giving Up On Paper Yet

The evolution of the office printer, and business machines in general, has taken Automated Business Machines Inc. in new directions over its 32-year history.

Begun without a customer, the business started by Alan Albergaria and Robert Maceroni in 1992 now has more than 4,000 clients and employs 84 people as of January 2023. Their incredible client loyalty is a testament to the ongoing visibility and care they provide to their customers.

Those numbers were boosted with the acquisition of an Acton, Massachusetts-based competitor, Printer Support Corp. In acquiring Printer Support Corp., ABS has added complementary business products, including check scanners and label printers. [learn more about ABS’ acquisitions]

As for the often-repeated statement that we’re moving to a paperless society, Albergaria had said he’d heard that before. “They’ve been talking about it since we’ve been in business.”

The Warwick company, doing business as Automated Business Solutions, has grown steadily over the past decades by moving beyond copiers, postage machines, and other traditional business machines and into computer-based services, such as information technology and cloud services.

It has remained nimble enough to provide same-day and next-day services to its clients, which beats the multinational conglomerate competitors who can’t move as fast.

Automated Business Solutions is currently the largest independently owned dealer in New England with 8 locations: Headquarters and 2nd office in Warwick RI, Southington CT, Marlborough MA, Hingham MA, Southbridge MA, New Bedford MA, and Ridgeland SC.
