From chemically treated paper on a roll – to Full Color Multifunction Systems – The History of Axiom Business Machines…

Chautauqua_Co-1945Axiom Copy Products was founded in August of 1980 by Mark Olson and Bruce Henry. Originally located in the former Hatch and Russo Typewriter offices on East Second Street in Jamestown NY, and formed mainly as a service company for older copy technologies such as liquid development on specially treated rolls of paper.

Shortly after the company was formed Plain Paper Copiers were introduced and allowed offices to copy on both sides of regular paper. This new technology started the evolution of the copier into the machines we know today. Axiom experienced substantial growth over the next few years and began building their large customer base. In 1989 Mr. Olson bought out Mr. Henry’s interest in the company and became it’s sole owner, creating Axiom Business Machines.

In 1993 the company moved into a 7000 square foot facility in the recently revitalized Gateway area, later renamed Robert H. Jackson Square. The new millennium brought with it new and exciting technologies including the advent of the Digital Copier which could be placed on a computer network and eliminate the need for individual printers and fax machines, instead allowing one centralized multi-function device. Digital Color Copiers were being introduced during this time as well, allowing for Digital Copiers to eliminate the need for numerous and costly ink-jet color printers. The newest generations of Lanier Digital Copiers also allow for the scanning and electronic retreival of documents, transforming them from mere copy machines into true Document Management systems.

Today Axiom Office Imaging is a local leader in document solutions, offering a wide range of copy and print products in both black and white, and color. We have a full support staff, which maintains and manages our document workflow solutions in hundreds of local offices in Western New York and North Western Pennsylvania.
