MADISON, WI – Gordon Flesch Company (GFC) has agreed to acquire Stan’s LPS Midwest of Woodstock, IL, a family-owned provider of business technology services in Wisconsin and Illinois.
Like GFC, Stan’s LPS Midwest is a family-owned and operated independent office technology dealer. Stan’s was founded in 1960 by Stanley Steadman and continues to be led by his sons, Mark and Tony.

In addition to sharing a similar corporate culture and history, GFC and Stan’s represent some of the same manufacturers which will help facilitate a seamless integration. The merged company will be known as the Gordon Flesch Company and will serve business customers in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio and South Dakota.
“We are proud of our legacy and reputation for high-quality service that we have built over the years at Stan’s LPS Midwest,” says Mark Steadman, President of Stan’s. “Joining the Gordon Flesch Company family is a natural fit and an exciting opportunity that allows us to continue building on that legacy.”
