STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 6, 2019-- Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI), a global technology company that provides commerce solutions in the areas of ecommerce, shipping, mailing, data and financial services, today announced that Wheeler Financial from Pitney Bowes has closed a financing transaction with Alpine Coffee of Englewood, Colorado.

We look forward to developing our partnership with Wheeler Financial in the long-term.”

“Companies like Alpine Coffee are the heartbeat of the U.S. economy.

Our commitment to America’s Main Street stands firm.”
