Founded in 1954 in West Reading, PA, Edwards/Virginia Business Systems is in its third generation of the EBS/VBS family leadership. EBS/VBS has grown from a mom and pop shop selling and servicing typewriters and adding machines into 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 successfully consolidated and strengthened its Mid-Atlantic focus and 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 11--one of which is the original location opened by Joseph and Alberta Edwards in 1954. With offices in Bethlehem, West Reading, Pottstown, Harrisburg, Lancaster, York and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, along with its offices in Richmond, Charlottesville, Lynchburg, and Roanoke, Virginia, the company provides service and support to a diverse roster of small, medium, and large-sized businesses throughout Eastern Pennsylvania and Central Virginia.
