Valentine’s Day is a great day to show appreciation and love for those you care about. At SumnerOne, we love our customers and we hope they love us too. So this year, we wanted to share some fun facts about why we love being SumnerOne!
A Family of Companies Run by a Family
Since Bud Sumner founded our business back in 1955, company ownership and leadership has stayed in the Sumner family. With their leadership through the years, SumnerOne has grown into one of the largest independent office technology dealers in the Midwest. Our offices span from central Illinois across Missouri to Kansas all the way to Arkansas. But we’re more than just a lot of offices, we are a family of companies united by the same values and belief that our customers are the heart and soul of our business.
At SumnerOne, our goal is to exceed your expectations and help you make the most of your investments in printing, IT and document technology. Each of our employees strives to go above and beyond for our customers to ensure that you receive the service that you deserve. We want to do whatever it takes to keep your business solutions running as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
Along with being a family-owned company, SumnerOne is also the fifth largest-veteran owned business in the St. Louis area. Our founder, Bud Sumner, served in World War II and his son Ed Sumner served during the Vietnam war. In addition to being veteran-owned, SumnerOne also has multiple employees who have served our country in all branches of the military. We take great pride in our history as a veteran-founded organization. As a whole, we are thankful for the men and women who have served our country both past and present.
Keeping Up With the Times
Office technology has come a long way since we opened our doors for business. We’ve evolved from selling typewriters and mimeographs all the way to today's cutting-edge digital technologies. One of the things we have done that has made us so successful over the years is staying ahead of the technologies needed to run a business and continuing to provide innovative products and services for our customers. In 1955, the internet as we know it was still decades away. In 2018, we have an entire team of managed service providers who can monitor your business’s network and resolve problems before you even know that they are an issue. We’ve evolved with technology, and we take great pride in the many and great services we can provide for the modern business world.
These are just a few of the many reasons why we love the business of office technology. SumnerOne has come a long way since 1955, and we hope to continue to share our love for office technology for many years to come!
We are in the business of helping your business to run as efficiently as possible. Let us do what we do best and share our knowledge and cutting-edge business solutions with you. For more information about what we can do for you, please reach out!
