During the 80’s and 90’s, the concept of laser based toner printers came into the market and the business houses and industries were going after it. At that time, a young man named Bob Brenan started his career in 1988 in a printer company as a sales representative. He was busy providing re-inked and recycled printer ribbons to different companies and business houses in the Twin cities.
With an ambitious mind and vision in his eyes Bob decided to start his own venture in the year 1995 and started International Office Technologies. At that time, different companies were racing against each other to capture the market for supplying printers. With an innovative mind, Bob felt that there was some missing link in the market and he decided to make his company slightly different from others. He thought of branding his company a complete supplier of printing solutions.
Once the business model was ready, IOT started its journey in the basement of the parental home which was located in West Saint Paul, MN. Managing time between family and business, he started offering total printer solution which included supply of printer and their repair and services. The offer was named as Total Laser Care (TLC) and it was being introduced to different companies in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
