Hmm, i work for a very large company, but only my branch is a dealer. Do i just count my service department (3) ? Or the company as a whole (close on a thousand employees national) ?

If only three of you deal wit copiers I would say your a small dealership under those circumstances.

Thats what i thought :) There is only myself, my senior tech, and my operations manager. My branch manager does some tech work as well, but it isn't really his job so I don't really count that so much. He fills in when we aren't here.

about 25 people in the entire company.

...an asshole? Yes I do.

:confused: Only 5 employees. Small computer company that purchased a
smaller copier and printer repair business, where I was a tech, that was sinking fast! Suburban Detroit.
The owner will not invest in selling new copiers, only repairing.

We are 7 techs in the company I work.

02-11-2007, 04:52 PM
When I started with this company we were the largest independently owned dealership in Texas, and even then we had over a hundred employees in several locations around the state. Now we are a subsidiary of Toshiba, and the headquarters for TBS-TX/NM and I have no clue how much bigger we have become. However, the office I work out of still "feels" like it did when I started here. I have no clue what it is like to work for a smaller company since this is the only place I have ever worked as a copier tech.. In a past life I was into HVAC and refrigeration. I like this much better ... not as physically demanding.

I work for a small but VERY busy dealership that only sell and service Ricoh.
My time is spilt between service work and connectivity setups.

I belong to a private company with 30+ copier techs, as many computer techs, phone and cable techs. 4 branches spread out across the state.

"My" territory has more then 1000+ machines that I maintain myself. Last official count was 980 not including the many HP's but it has grown.

06-06-2007, 02:19 AM
I work for a Canon Dealership that has over 15 techs, but I'm working on going solo, where MY WIFE will be the BOSS! It just always seems to work out like that. I think that's why they marry us so they can finally be the BOSS of SOMEONE!:cool:

I think we have about 70 employees

07-11-2008, 04:59 PM
We are a parts vendor - copier, printers, & fax parts. Just shy of 50 people total here, but thats counting sales people. So I voted medium, but small if you count only techs.

07-11-2008, 06:07 PM
We're a franchised dealer, but the service manager, the service tech, the delivery person, the parts guy, and the dispatcher are all me. Currently 400 printers, and 80 or so MFPs. We have 5 sales people, but there main focus is in other areas of the business. Copiers is a sideline, but growing fast. =^..^=

08-10-2008, 07:20 AM
We have 16 technicians and have 3 offices in 3 cities.... covers about a 150 mile radius of Joplin MO.

We service Sharp BW & color copiers, Sharp faxes, Canon BW & color copiers, Canon faxes and now Lexmark copier/fax...

we have 3 engineers, all of us left handed, yet all the equipment we work on are designed for right handed people. Is that some kind of discrimination, can I sue?

I too am left handed, living in a right handed world!:confused:I want minority status (rights) because of it.:) We could have a class action law suit.:D

Try shooting a M16 left handed. The hot shell casings fly right into your face and back. Got a nice burn scar on my back, from the rifle range, when I was in USMC bootcamp.

Really though us left handers should not complain. Everyone knows that left handed people are in their right mind:p:):D

Small Company, 1 full time tech and me the salesman/Tech ( oops i mean account rep)/Tech. Try being an old tech then become a sales person and then do tech work also. VERY CONFUSING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:confused:

08-27-2008, 04:04 AM
Went from LARGE co (Ikon) to small ma & pa, 5 techs, 3 sales, 2 support staff. Approx 1500 units over large rural geography. Learned how to spell culture shock REAL fast. Equip includes Kyocera, Konica/Minolta,Canon,Ricoh,Samsung. Full product lines of KM and Canon including business colour. Last CLC training CLC700 (yeah I'm that old!) Anyone remember CLC1? How about NP210? Been doing this too long....

08-28-2008, 04:34 AM
I guess I'll chime in on this thread. I work for TBS TX/NM. The company became a subsidiary of Toshiba about three years ago; I've been with them for 8 years. Got a bunch of folks working out of our office ... so many I am always seeing someone I don't know. Us techs all know each other, though, and out of OUR office there's 15 techs.


08-28-2008, 07:11 AM
works for a government hospital here in middle east,in the maintenance dept...all by myself in the office equipment section..and i would say its kind of difficult wherein i have to"drain" my brain out..if there's a problem with any of my machines,it even sleeps with me in my dreams...hahaha..i guess thats why my body is still thin??:)

09-05-2008, 12:07 PM

I'm 1 of 9 people from the boss on down, we have 2 full time techs, the service manager who also goes out from time to time and myself doing the back up work and return to workshop repairs. I also do the purchasing, web site, marketing for the sales people, stock control and anything else that comes across my desk:( but I'm on holiday for the next two weeks so I don't care!!!:D:D

I work for an imaging supplies wholesaler. I end up having to deal with any tech issues that come up (luckly not very many) and find this forum to be a good resource.
