In 1974, the Portland Trailblazers were beginning their fourth season, the Fremont Bridge was just completed, and Ed Pickens opened Imperial Office Machines in South East Portland. Imperial quickly became a regional leader in office equipment, specializing in IBM and Royal typewriters. As technology changed, so did the products Imperial sold. The plain paper fax machine and xerographic copier became the staple products of the industry. Imperial became an authorized Canon dealer in 1993 and is proud to represent Canon’s quality line of copiers, wide format printers, scanners, and document management solutions. Though the products and technology have changed, Imperial’s values and focus have not.
Imperial’s success has been founded on providing exceptional service with quality printing & copy machine products. Today, Imperial focuses on providing the latest technology in digital imaging and document management. Staying true to its beginnings, Imperial thrives on remaining a local business that its customers can rely on for all their imaging needs. No matter how big or small your company is, you can count on Imperial and its tenured staff of professionals to help your business save time, energy, and money.
