Combined Arkansas company to service customers nationwide
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (April 25, 2018) – On Monday, April 9, Business Machines Systems, Inc. d/b/a Advanced POS Solutions (APS) acquired Staley, Inc. d/b/a Staley Technologies of Little Rock. While the terms of the deal remain undisclosed, the newly merged company will be led by Andrew Faulkner, former President of Advanced POS Solutions and current Staley Inc. President Gary Ferrell. Staley Electric, a local Little Rock electrical contractor, is not part of the merger and will remain family-owned and operated by Brent Staley.
“I am confident this merger will ensure our ability to best service our customers,” said Faulkner. “When I purchased APS, I saw a wonderful team of employees and customers who worked as partners. For decades, Staley Technologies has partnered with clients nationwide to provide the expertise needed for technology deployment and installation. By acquiring Staley Technologies and merging the companies, it positions us to better serve clients, together, in new ways as a full-service provider.”
Staley Technologies was created by Ed Staley in 1986 as an addition to Staley Electric, the company his own father began in 1951. APS was founded in 1971 and later purchased by Faulkner in 2012. Under the name Staley Technologies, the combined companies will provide software, hardware, cloud-based solutions and managed services with a national service model for industries such as hospitality, retail, and healthcare. Offered services include POS systems and kiosks; CCTV and access controls; digital signage; network infrastructure; and other technologies that drive market growth.
“Andrew’s strong ethics and leadership make me confident that he is the right person to lead Staley Technologies,” said Ed Staley, founder of Staley Technologies. “I am pleased to say that the current leadership team will work alongside Andrew to continue our traditions of quality service and strong values.”
Together, APS and Staley Technologies has more than 200 employees and will operate in all 50 states, though the merged company headquarters will remain in Little Rock. During the second quarter, all APS personnel will transition to the current Staley campus on Fourche Road.
“As one of our best and fastest growing partners, the APS leadership team has demonstrated an ability to excel not only in Arkansas but throughout the region. This merger will allow National Cash Register (NCR) and APS/Staley Technologies to partner on a much larger scale. We are thrilled about the opportunities it presents,” said Ken Richard, Vice President, Global Channels at NCR Corporation.
