Each new decade ushers in technological advances and innovative products. Those, combined with finely honed consulting skills, enable the firm to deliver the most effective storage solutions to its customers. Patterson Pope helps its broad base of clients in government, legal, finance, education, healthcare, retail, manufacturing and other sectors save money by designing and implementing storage solutions that maximize space and investment value.
The company experienced its most intentional and robust growth period (in terms of clients, service capabilities and geographic expansion) during the past 20 years under the visionary leadership of company president Denny Hammack. As sales manager in 1994, Hammack assembled an ownership group that purchased the company – formerly known as Patterson Business Systems – from the Patterson family. Hammack and his four partners have since spearheaded the evolution of the company, launching an array of expanded consulting services and products.
With its 2004 acquisition of the J.E. Pope Company, a distributor of the industry-leading Spacesaver product line, Patterson Business Systems was rebranded as Patterson Pope and expanded its reach across the Carolinas and Virginia. Four more acquisitions (United Business Systems in 2007, Central Business Group in 2011, Walter Hopkins Company in 2012 and Southern Business Systems in 2013) effectively tripled the size of the company. With Hammack at the helm, Patterson Pope has grown from 13 full-time employees in 1994 to more than 200 today, and from a geographic territory with offices in Charlotte, Raleigh and Greensboro, NC to a multi-state network that serves clients across Florida, Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky and Ohio.
In May of 2011, Patterson Pope branded its fastest-growing division as FileSolve. Today, through a combination of Business Processing Outsourcing and Enterprise Content Management solutions, FileSolve is committed to providing the solutions that fuel business processes across a number of industries.
Through the years, Patterson Pope has earned a solid reputation as a committed partner in its client relationships by providing expertise – from consultation to implementation – that delivers bottom-line results. With a strategic vision in place, the company plans to enhance and expand its services and products to build its physical and virtual presence to meet the ever-growing demands of its committed client base.
