The Copiers Northwest Story
Copiers Northwest was founded in 1986 by Mark and Gregg Petrie who after working in the copier industry identified a need beyond the hardware.
While competitors continued to sell copiers based on speeds and features, the Petries understood that the service and support to keep the machines up and running was more important to customers. Bells and whistles were worthless if the machines were down.
Understanding the marketplace has been the key to Copiers Northwest’s three-plus decades of growth, success and industry leadership. In the beginning, it was knowing that customers didn’t really want copiers, they wanted what came out of the copier; copies.
Being able to rely on Copiers Northwest helped businesses focus on their core competency and be better than their competition.
We Help Businesses Be Better at What They Do
Today, Copiers Northwest has over 200 employees and 12 locations throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Even though the products we represent and the technology-driven services we provide go far beyond copiers and fast copier service, the philosophy remains the same; help businesses be better at what they do.
Providing Great Service is Our Mission
Although our roots included copiers, Copiers Northwest has become a single source office technology solution by offering a variety of printing solutions, all-in-one multifunction products, high production printers, document storage and retrieval hardware and software, telephone systems, I.T. and network support and much more.
However, the mission of Copiers Northwest has remained the same; provide actionable and innovative solutions along with the unwavering support required to make businesses better and provide decision-makers with peace of mind.
