They have one corporate office located in Orange County, California; and an additional sales office located in Georgia. They provide services nationwide and also have international clients! This small but efficient team produced nearly $2,000,000 in sales in 2020. A new owner has a wonderful opportunity to expand into new industries or continue to run this successful business as-is.

The company currently places their orders with nearly 240 vendors and keeps approximately $35K worth of inventory on hand at any given time. Along with offering a huge selection of products, they also provide printer & scanner maintenance and full-scale nationwide fulfillment services. They pack and ship customer-specific orders daily and distribute the shipments locally as well as nationwide using United Parcel Service and LTL freight companies.

Small businesses all the way up to large retail chains need these services to keep up with ever-evolving technology while maintaining profitability and keeping costs low.
