    printer imaging supplies, strong vendor relationships and a diverse

    great complement to United Stationers’ core strengths.”

    services looks set to be the new battleground amongst the big
    wholesalers.United’s latest announcement comes weeks after it acquired
    technology solutions company MBS Dev and also coincides with the launch
    of main rival SP Richards’ own MPS offering, printsmart.
