Celebrating 125 Years of Office Systems Success

The world of office supplies has changed so much since 1893. The paper clip was invented in 1899, adhesive tape was created in 1925, the first color copy was successfully printed in 1977, not to mention the vast developments in computer technology!

As our company marks its 125th anniversary this April, we feel so grateful to have witnessed so many momentous events as we served our area.

Take a trip down memory lane with us to celebrate such a significant occasion.

Some Things Have Changed

When our organization was founded in 1893, it was incorporated as Sioux City Stationery Co., Inc. by the Small brothers. Initially, they sold a vast variety of products. From lumber to bridal wear, the company really did sell a little bit of everything. If you were looking for premier luggage, a good book, or a specialty gift of almost any kind—Sioux City Stationery Co. had you covered.

The company created multiple divisions, including a retail store, from the 1960s to the late 1990s. One of which, the Office Systems division, was created in 1956 and focused solely on office machines and technology.

Later, in 1989, Sioux City Stationery Co., Inc. would rebrand itself as Office Systems Company to become the company we all know and appreciate today.
