Alex began in the office machine industry at 19 years old, working for Harper Brothers Inc. as a typewriter technician. He founded Martin’s Typewriter Service in 1982 and specialized in the education market. After a few years, Alex expanded into other markets including all types of local businesses. Around 1992, he added fax machines, printers, and copiers to his product mix, and in 1999, changed the official company name to MTS Office Machines. Today, the company is also known as MTS Office and/or MTS, and still provides similar products in the form of multi-function printers and copiers, and related services. Alex credits the success of MTS to putting others first, having great co-workers, and giving back to the local community. He loves the beach, spending time with his family, and college football.
