A local company celebrated 30 years of business in the Mahoning Valley on Thursday.
Valley Office Solutions on South Avenue was presented with a United States flag that was flown over the Capitol Building on July 31 by Congressman Bill Johnson, R-Marietta.
VOS’s Steve Blankman said the company started with just $800 he used to buy two copy machines. He eventually sold the machines for $2,000 each.
“Never would have imagined it to be honest with you,” Blankman said. “Thirty years ago when I was just trying to survive, I would have never imagined that 30 years later we would still be doing this and how the company has morphed into a technology-based company and I am just totally amazed.”
