Office Elements Satisfies Your Business Needs

By Staff | Jul 15, 2008

Office Elements is your one-stop option to take care of any business needs you may have-from furniture and supplies to service and technology. Mike Prior, document analyst with Office Elements, is the company’s representative for the Palo Alto County area.

“We’re a technology, supply, and furniture company that works with small businesses and corporate industries,” said Prior.

Prior explained that the company has sold and serviced copiers to all types of businesses, including churches and hospitals. They also carry a vast variety of products-everything from janitorial and office supplies to dog treats.

“There’s over 8,000 items in our catalog,” smiled Prior. “We have a ridiculous amount of stuff.”

Office Elements’ major product lines are Allsteel and HON, as well as over 300 other represented manufacturers. Also, as a leading dealer and servicing agent for Sharp, Office Elements will service and repair a wide variety of office machine brands and models.

Orders may be placed by phone, fax, online, through a personal representative like Prior, or in person at one of the locations of Office Elements (Spirit Lake, Storm Lake, Sioux City, Mason City, Cedar Falls, Hiawatha, and Sioux Falls).

Prior noted that he usually visits Emmetsburg on Thursdays.

“Emmetsburg is one of the areas that I come to frequently,” he noted. “I’ll come right into your business.”

Before the business became Office Elements, it was known as Iowa Office Supply. Iowa Office Supply was started when Barney Roberts began selling office equipment in 1961 and his success enabled him to open his first store in 1967. The business continued to expand with new locations.

As Iowa Office Supply was growing, General Business Interiors Inc. was founded as a typewriter and supply company by Ben and Betty Shapiro in 1964. General Business Interiors developed into a full-service office furniture dealership providing a wide range of office furnishings from the industry’s leading manufacturers and a broad range of services.

In January 2005, these shared values and complimentary products and services brought General Business Interiors and Iowa Office Supply together, expanding the geographic area over seven locations across Iowa and South Dakota.

“I want to try and get involved as much as possible in the community, as my time will allow,” said Prior. “Emmetsburg has some of the nicest people around.”
