OfficePro was founded in July of 2003 by Jamin Arn who had a concept of being a just-in-time supplier of office environment needs. It was run out of a 20' x 40' storage unit in Janesville, WI with a small built-in office with neither heat nor airconditioning.
Over the next three years OfficePro's sales grew and in June of 2006 it joined forces with Warmke Office Supply. The operation moved into the old Parker Pen headquarters and started selling used, scratch and dent and showroom office furniture.
By August of 2007 OfficePro reached sales of over three million and had acquired a document shredding company. It also expanded its product line to include janitorial and packaging supplies. The company was relocated to a bigger facility with over 30,000 square feet of showroom space.
In October of 2007 OfficePro purchased Used But Nice Office Furniture on the southside of Madison, WI. By Christmas of that year the showroom moved into a much larger space on the west side of Madison.
Over the years OfficePro not only has grown in size, staff and square footage; it has also grown in the depth of the products and services it has to offer. What started out selling strictly pens and paper to mom and pop shops has evolved into selling all office supplies, new and used office furniture, school supplies, custom stamps, janitorial supplies, document shredding, recycling services, packaging supplies and facility maintenance supplies to corporate accounts right along side with the mom and pops. The small staff allows for personalized service, knowledgeable staff and prompt delivery. "Our people make a difference" says Jamin Arn, "It's the excitement of seeing us grow that keeps our staff motivated. A happy motivated staff results in loyal and satisfied customers."
July of 2010, Martin Group opens a new showroom in the Janesville, WI location, showcasing their line of copiers and business machines. You can find them on the web at www.martingroup.com
