It all started in the home of William Barlow in 1980. During that time, Mr. Barlow was working out of his home in Bountiful, Utah, selling office equipment to businesses. During that time, the company focused primarily on print shops and copy centers. The company grew quickly and a new office had to be purchased. A structure in the Bountiful city business district was purchased, gutted and remodeled to fit the company’s needs. Over the next few years the business continued to grow and additional office space was built.

In the mid 1990s, the Internet was beginning to grow in popularity and the idea of an online storefront took hold. In 1996, ABC Office initiated its first online Web site where customers could browse products, with ease, from their own computer. “We saw the potential of the Internet,” said Calvin Barlow, current president of ABC Office.

As soon as the Web site was built, calls and orders started coming in from around the world. ABC Office used to sell primarily to customers in Utah, but with the introduction of the Web site, the company began to sell more and more outside the state. The business began to grow so fast that the existing warehouse and store were quickly outgrown.

The current owners and sons of founder William Barlow, Calvin and Brent Barlow, knew they needed to find a new location where they could continue grow. They purchased a plot of land in Kaysville, Utah, and started building a new structure that was completed in December of 1999. The current building, including warehouse space, totals 27,000 square feet.

The building has a display floor, where local customers test out products and purchase machines. The warehouse allows ABC Office to ship products directly to customers, which cuts down on shipping time and customer service. Hundreds of packages ship out of the new warehouse on a daily basis. The staff includes a sales department, Web department, purchasing department, accounting department and a fully functioning service department.

Products are shipped to countries in North America, Asia, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East on a regular basis. ABC Office has increased its product line, from the traditional binding machines and paper cutters, to now include security equipment, display racks and photo ID equipment. Paper shredders are currently one of the most popular products sold.

Customers are now able to securely order products via a toll-free phone line or by using the online shopping cart. One of the newest features available to customers is the ability to see a live and interactive video demo over the Internet with a sales associate. This allows customers to see a product live and in action while asking questions and receiving answers.

ABC Office is a true realization of the American Dream. In only 25 years, ABC Office has gone from a door-to-door, home-based business to an international leader in high-end office equipment, accessories
and supplies. To see the wide selection of products and services that ABC Office has to offer, please visit the Web site at here: ABC Office.
