Pirates and Amcom Office Systems Sign Multi-Year Agreement
By / MLB.com
The Pittsburgh Pirates announced today they have agreed on a new multi-year deal with Amcom Office Systems to be the official print and copy supply providers of the Pirates.
As part of the agreement, the Pirates have granted Amcom the right to use the team’s iconic Pirates “P” logo in the company’s promotional advertising and marketing materials. Amcom will also have a presence in PNC Park on game days as the company will receive signage on the main concourse of the park and advertising in the Pirates’ First Pitch game day magazine.
In addition Amcom office technology will be used throughout the Pirates Front Office.
“We are proud to have Amcom on board as a Pirates partner and look forward to utilizing their superior service and technology standards to the fullest potential,” said Lou DePaoli, Pirates Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer.
Amcom Office Systems was one of the first core companies acquired by Global Imaging Systems. Global Imaging Systems is the most disciplined consolidator in the highly fragmented office imaging solutions industry. Amcom became a wholly owned subsidiary of Xerox in 2007 and the relationship allows them to maintain a position of leadership in technology and service.
“We are thrilled to enter this partnership with the Pirates,” said Amcom VP of Sales Thomas Ruschel. “Amcom has worked hard to become a technology leader in the region. We will continue this hard work with the Pirates and look forward to a great working relationship.”
