EO Johnson Acquires Koch Office Group Business Technologies Division

BTA member EO Johnson Business Technologies has acquired BTA member Koch Office Group, with offices in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The move expands EO Johnson's imaging, business technology and digital transformation footprint in the Midwest. The acquisition was finalized Feb. 1, 2024.

Locknet Managed IT, an EO Johnson Company and managed security service provider, already serves the Iowa market. With the acquisition of Koch Office Group, EO Johnson expands its full line of product and service offerings into Iowa.

Companies that rely on Koch Office Group for their Canon, HP and Ricoh imaging equipment needs will continue to receive the highest level of customer support and have access to the expanded range of services offered by EO Johnson.

"Locknet already has a loyal client base in Iowa, and we are excited to now offer our full line of services there," said Mary Jo Johnson, CEO and owner, EO Johnson Business Technologies. "Similar to EO Johnson, Koch Office Group has a long history of supporting its customers with exceptional solutions and service. It was a natural fit to bring them into the EO Johnson family."

"Koch Office Group and EO Johnson — both family-owned businesses — have been office technology pioneers for 67 years," said Dutch Koch, president, Koch Office Group. "Our two companies align exceptionally well. We have a shared commitment to excellence for our customers and we are excited to be part of EO Johnson’s continued growth into Iowa."

Several of Koch Office Group's diverse service offerings were not part of the acquisition. Those include office interiors, office supplies, promotional products and quick printing services.
