2021 Industry Difference makers

Mark and Gregg Petrie founded Copiers Northwest in 1986 and since then have grown the company to be one of the largest office technology dealerships in the USA with 12 locations throughout Washington, Oregon, and parts of Idaho.

The office technology industry was hit hard by the stay-at-home directives since so many office workers were working from home and not using printers, mfp’s and other office technology products. Copiers Northwest was able to pivot and offer specials to customers for products that could be used at home and keep their employees productive. They also added a line of temperature screening kiosks for customers considered essential businesses and those who were preparing to re-open.

“It goes without saying that this past year has been one of the most challenging in our 35 year history,” said Copiers Northwest’s President, Gregg Petrie. “However, Mark and I believe we came out of it stronger by adding new products and services. Plus, our salespeople learned to adapt and utilize different methods of marketing and meeting with customers and prospects.”
