American Copy Machines Co. started operation out of a 10’x10′ room at 220 Fifth Ave. NYC servicing Apeco copiers. At that time Apeco Dial a Copy was copying on thermal paper at 40 seconds a page. Subway fare was $0.50 and our office rent was $150.00/mo.
American Copy Machines started doing Short Term rentals. Over the years we provided equipment to Ronald Reagan, John Glenn, Walter Cronkite, Tony Awards… Today we are the #1 choice for most hotels, law firms, production companies, etc
We moved again quadrupling our office space to 500 sq. with a monthly rent of $600.00/month. At that time we had a secretary and 2 technicians reachable by beeper. Our service department was servicing other brands such as Saxon, 3M, SCM, Royfax as well as typewriters and checkwriters.
American Copy Machines became an Authorized Canon PC copier service Facility. These desktop copiers made history for using toner cartridges, plain paper with a speed of 10 page per minute. Business was booming and the company was incorporated the same year.
Again we outgrew our space and moved to a new state of the art location. We became fully computerized and sold our first thermal fax machine for $2,500.00.
We sold the first Canon CJ10 color copier. It was a ink jet device doing only 8.5×11 and sold for $10,000.
We purchased 5,000 sq ft of office space in midtown Manhattan that is still occupied today by the sales, service and administration departments.
Based on our performance in 2013 we received Canon’s prestigious “Outstanding Partner Award”. The same year American Copy Machines became a full line Canon dealer.
Again 2014 was an amazing year and we received for the second year Canon’s prestigious “Outstanding Partner Award”
