Barry Taylor
Founder
1938 - 2013

Barry Taylor founded his first company in 1972. By 1989, when he sold, it had become one of the largest office-equipment dealers in America. Entering the new millennium Barry established two new companies. Taylor Made Water Systems was motivated by a desire to provide employees better water and richer coffee on demand. The catalyst for Taylor Made Digital Systems was the thousands of customers who were unhappy with the pricing and support from their office equipment vendor. Barry knew his 30-year heritage of better customer care and better pricing would make a difference.

Taylor Made Digital Systems joined forces with Ricoh Corporation in 2006.

In 2009 Barry once again saw a need for great office technology and a way to help customers control their print costs and spending. After 2 years of researching the marketplace and creating the best business partners in current office technology, in 2011 Barry started Taylor Made Business Systems, A Managed Print Services Company, combining technology, experience, and a culture of customer care.

Barry is also CEO of the Taylor Family Foundation.
