The roots of A-Z Office Resource, Inc began in 1985 when M.G. "Butch" West, Jr. purchased The Office Resource located in Columbia, Tennessee. The basic tenets of his new company were simple but still stand true to this day " "to provide exceptional personal, professional and on-time service to the customer ; without compromising on competitive pricing and a great product selection." Success came quickly, resulting in the acquisition of long time Middle Tennessee dealer, A-Z Office Supply Company. Along with the acquisition came a new name and operations hub, moving the newly named A-Z Office Resource, Inc to its current location of Nashville, Tennessee.The late 80's and early 90's marked a dramatic shift in the office supply industry with the advent of the " big box" chain store concept. While most independent supply dealers were unable to compete in this environment and either sold out or closed their doors, A-Z continued on their controlled growth plan through organic sales and strategic acquisition.Key to this growth was an emphasis on becoming the most technology driven independent dealer in the market place.By bringing technology to the forefront A-Z was able to maintain the "hometown" feel, while offering the same electronic processing advantages only being offered by their much larger national rivals.Net result" A-Z Office Resource has grown to be not only the largest independent office supply dealer in the Mid South region but now ranks as one of the largest nationally as well.The eAZy Way to do BusinessPersonal services with a hometown feel, innovative and user friendly technology, and the most complete product offerings available have made A-Z Office Resource the gold standard in our field.
