In the early 1970’s, when John Polek was National Sales Manager for Saxon Business Systems, he became aware of the high cost of parts and supplies OEMs were charging their dealers. He had an idea that if he could find out what factories were supplying parts and supplies to the manufacturers, he could make available high quality parts and supplies to copier dealers at a significant savings. In July 1974, John founded Polek & Polek as a one person army out of his garage. John originally formed a partnership with Panasonic to develop a complete line of tungsten halogen lamps to be used in copiers. As the years went on, dealers requested Polek & Polek to develop more money saving products to help them be profitable, and Polek & Polek delivered on that. Watching Polek & Polek grow over the decades was an important passion of John’s life. John passed away September 21, 2010.
