Hummel’s Office Plus Expands to State Capital with Acquisition

Posted on August 4, 2020

MOHAWK — Hummel’s Office Plus, the largest independently owned office products dealer in Central New York, acquired Latham–based Workplace Central- Albany on August 1, 2020. Financial terms of the deal remain confidential.

Workplace Central-Albany will change its name to Hummel’s Office Plus and continue to operate from its location at 776C Watervliet-Shaker Rd., Latham, NY. Hummel’s will retain all
Workplace Central-Albany employees and continue to service commercial delivery accounts.

“The merging of our two companies is a great story for Central New York. We are proud of the history of both companies and remain focused on bringing the very best solution to our customers while they procure their business products,” Hummel’s CEO Justin Hummel said. "We believe that this merger is in the best interest of our customers and employees.
We have been happy to provide superior service in the Capital Region over these many years and are confident that under the Hummel's leadership the tradition will continue" said Norman White, President of Workplace Central.

The merger of Hummel’s Office Plus and Workplace Central-Albany results in enhanced knowledge and expertise in the areas of office supplies, office furniture, technology, janitorial and break room products. It also brings Hummel’s Central New York employee base to nearly 100.

“We’re thrilled to have the Workplace Central-Albany employees join the Hummel’s team,” Hummel said. “Workplace Central-Albany customers will benefit from our extensive product offering and competitive pricing structure. We are equally excited that all Workplace Central-Albany employees will be staying to help us take care of our new customers.”
