CTWP believes in "Customers for Life"
On January 2, 1979, A.B. Dick Products of Waco opened, selling mimeograph, spirit duplicators, offset, and wet copier machines. By 1980 the company had grown to include a presence in three cities--Waco, Bryan-College Station, and San Angelo. During that time, Central Texas Word Processing was formed, selling the Philips Micom Word Processor. By 1984, it was the largest independent dealer of word processors in the country. In 1985 the name was changed to CTWP, and the company began selling and building personal computers. The next year CTWP became the Apple dealer for Central Texas, with the Computerland franchise following in 1988. CTWP began to refocus on copiers during the subsequent year (1989), and in 1993 it became the Minolta dealer in San Antonio. A decade later, the newest CTWP office opened in Abilene, Texas with two original employees remaining still--one is David Willie, President and founder; the second is Dudley Jones, Vice President and Service Manager.
Since the beginning, CTWP has grown from four employees to over 100 employees. A major percentage of these employees are long-term employees, bringing vast knowledge and experience to this company. Today CTWP is the largest independently-owned copier corporation in TEXAS, with offices in Waco, Temple, San Antonio, San Angelo, and Bryan. In all these cities, CTWP is recognized as a major dealer in that area.
CTWP has had top dealer awards for all the major copier companies that it has represented (Minolta, Konica, Savin-Gestetner and Kyocera-Mita).
CTWP is the only copier company prepared to move in to the new millennium with computer-interfaced office products to include copiers, projection units and facsimiles. These advancements will allow an entire office to network, utilizing all equipment to its maximum potential, simultaneously cutting operating costs.
CTWP is financially sound and backed by local financial institutions.
