Our History

Who We Are?

Inspired by years of shared industry experience at a national copier dealership and a bold new vision, Howard and Colleen Hansen and Tom and Kathy Gwinn acquired Valley Office Systems in 2003.

Both Howard and Tom knew customers wanted a local company whose employees were empowered to make good decisions and get jobs done right and immediately positioned Valley Office Systems as “A Service Company Above All Else.
