Headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, EDI Partners is a leading EDI service provider serving customers across diverse industry verticals in the United States. With nearly three decades of experience, we’ve been helping organizations maximize the value of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) through seamless, end-to-end management of their EDI operations.

Our History: Over 30 Years of EDI Service Expertise

Founded in 1993 by business partners Kent Benton and Bruce Sandkam, EDI Partners emerged from the recognition of a market need for flexible EDI-managed solutions. Over the years, we've evolved from a local firm into an internationally-connected organization with the technical expertise to deliver EDI solutions to some of the world's largest corporations.

In 2022, EDI Partners was acquired by GS2 Ventures, LLC, while still retaining its original founders. With the infusion of new leadership, EDI Partners has continued to expand, maintaining the high level of customer service, technical know-how, and problem-solving mindset originally instilled by Benton and Sandkam, all of which has long been enjoyed by our clients.
