SumnerOne is excited to bring Drake Systems, a strong, local company based in Tulsa, Oklahoma into our family of companies. Drake Systems has a well-known reputation in the Tulsa market for maintaining high standards of loyalty, fairness, and forthrightness.
We greatly admired Drake Systems and their commitment to having a customer-centered focus much like our own. Drake Systems truly brings added value to our family of companies and we believe this could not be a better match for both parties involved.
This partnership enables SumnerOne and Drake to offer broader choices to current customers in the Tulsa area, including an entire portfolio of Managed IT Services. Our plan is to offer more solutions for Drake Systems to continue to be a cutting-edge technology partner in Tulsa.
Expanding our reach into the Tulsa market is important to us for more than one reason. While it is great to be widening our reach into more Midwest markets, the state of Oklahoma holds meaning to the history of our company. In 1937 our founder, Bud Sumner, began his career at A.B. Dick Company. A company that became known as a trailblazer in this country's printing industry. After years of working with the company, Bud purchased the A.B. Dick distributor in Oklahoma City. After a few years, he sold the Oklahoma City distributor and opened A.B. Dick Products of St. Louis, Inc. which is where our company headquarters still resides today. In a way, you could almost say we're revisiting our roots in Oklahoma by expanding our reach into the Sooner State!
At SumnerOne, our mission is to consistently exceed our customers' expectations by providing superior value through our collective expertise and commitment to every customer. We are excited to have a company like Drake Systems joining our family so that we may continue to provide the Tulsa area businesses with the solutions and service that they deserve.
