MT Business Technologies Bio

MT Business Technologies (MTBT) prides itself on being an innovative company with an exceptional ability to understand the business need of our clients. MT Business Technologies Inc. began in 1918 as a small typewriter business and grew into a third generation company employing over 300 people. One hundred percent of MTBT’s operational team are living and raising their families in Central and Northern Ohio.

In May 2017, MT Business Technologies was acquired by Global Imaging Systems (GIS) a Xerox Company. Global Imaging Systems (GIS), a leading provider of business technology solutions, is made up of regional core companies in the United States that sell and service document management systems such as printers, copiers and multifunction devices; network integration services; and electronic presentation systems. As an office technology dealer, Global Imaging Systems sells products from various suppliers including Xerox. Xerox acquired Global Imaging Systems in 2007 and operates it as a wholly owned subsidiary within Xerox’s North America Operations.

Advantages to MT Business Technologies’ Clients:
Local people, local pride – MTBT is now connected to all the resources of an industry leading company and one of the most recognized brand names in the office equipment world, Xerox. MT Business Technologies did not change their name nor their people. MTBT simply wants to leverage their proven success as a new distribution channel for Xerox products. There is no intent to change any of the elements that make MT unique.

What’s new?
In addition to products currently offered, MT Business Technologies can now include Xerox products as the primary source for your document imaging needs. MTBT now has access to an impressive range of products from Xerox. Most people are familiar with Xerox and their reputation for quality. After all, Xerox invented the first photocopier and they have continued to innovate and be a leader in our industry.
