Our History at your Tascosa Office Machines
Tascosa Office Machines strives to create an environment teaming with life, supplying our customers the “fresh water and abundant resources” needed for your business to thrive.
In 1976, Johnnie King launched out as an entrepreneur selling and repairing Canon copiers. Johnnie saw that there was a major shift in technology happening and decided to establish his own copier business, Tascosa Office Machines.
Tascosa is a Native American word meaning high plains marsh. A high plains marsh is an abundant resource for its people, and this is what Tascosa Office Machines is founded upon.
While the business was slowly growing, the King family was still struggling to make ends meet. JP, the King’s oldest son, came home from college and began partnering with his dad, providing a foundation for the service portion of the business. Richard, their middle son, began working alongside his dad at the age of 13. From the beginning it took a family to build this business, and today that same family keeps it growing. Johnnie and his three sons worked together at a young age to create the successful copier business that Tascosa is today.
A few years later, technology made another major shift with the introduction of PC copiers. Now small businesses were able to have personal copiers. Other copier lines were now available, but Canon continued to lead the way. Canon could now officially say they were #1 in copier sales. In 1987, facsimile machines became affordable for small business, which was another major leap in technology. Canon was also leading the industry by implementing the technology to insert color cartridges on the side of the copiers. This allowed businesses to be able to print a single color copy.
