Happy Anniversary to Us!: Proud to be Celebrating 40 Years

May 12, 2016

We started with humble beginnings: Founder, Terry Newsom, sold copy machines out of a tiny office in Portland, Oregon. Forty years later, we are the No. 1 private dealership in the country and have grown to 20 offices across 8 states, with more than 900 employees. Yes, we still sell and lease copy machines, but we also offer comprehensive IT services, facilities management, data security, and document management systems. Through it all, our motto, "Problem solved," has never wavered and we are proud to be celebrating 40 years in business!

Getting Big, While Staying Small

While our roots remain in the Pacific Northwest, we are thrilled to have offices across Oregon, Washington, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, and Idaho.

Though we are now a national force in the office equipment and workflow solutions industry, our focus remains local. We believe that by investing in the communities in which we work and live, we raise everyone up collectively. We do so by sponsoring local sports teams, hosting charity golf tournaments, and volunteering at toy drives during the holiday season.

Keeping Our Communities In Mind

Philanthropy is an integral part of our company culture. We believe a team that challenges each other to do better, can grow their skills and manpower to solve any problem - whether that be for our customers, our company, or our community. Our employees drive our culture of giving back, and we invest back in them through comprehensive benefits packages, company trips, and opportunities to grow!

We care about our employees and we care about our customers, but we also care about the planet. No doubt, our industry is paper-intensive, and we take every step we can to help our customers reduce paper-use through print and document management systems. We also work closely with community recycling partners to ensure that every part of our old copiers and printers are properly recycled.

The Future of POA

As we look to the future, we will continue to invest in our employees, our communities, and our customers. Technology evolves and customer needs change, but we will always dedicate ourselves to providing custom office solutions that are efficient and secure. No matter the size, the industry, or the need, we will continue to live by our motto of "Problem solved."

Thank you to our customers, our employees, and our communities for an exciting 40 years. We can't wait to see what the next 40 years will bring!
