Locally owned and operated since 1974, we have been serving Southwest Louisiana and Southeast Texas as an authorized dealer of IBM/Lexmark and have expanded into all types of office equipment sales, service and supplies.
Our name may have changed (only twice) but our service, support, integrity and honesty that we show our customers has always been number one! We pride ourselves on quick service turnaround time. Business Machines, Inc. is also proud to be a minority (woman-owned) business.
In 1999, Shanda and Chris Chitty purchased Business Machines, Inc. Chris had been an employee of Hunter Business Machines, and later by Business Machines, Inc. since 1984. Chris has various certifications on many different makes and models of office equipment including but not limited to: computers, printers, shredders and typewriters. He is also field-trained on multiple types of office equipment and networking. Shanda has accounting/bookkeeping experience since 1985, and she manages all financial and administrative aspects of the office. She is the one that’s makes everything run smooth! Chris and Shanda has been both active with their children in community and school academic and athletic activities. We also volunteered for the Calcasieu 4-H youth programs, including participating in the Junior Leader Exchange trips. Chris has been a volunteer for our community Fire Department as a first responder and firefighter since 1997.
With the fast paced, large corporation world of today, this little business with its “BIG” service would like to thank all of our customer’s, old and new alike, for their continued dedicated support. We are very proud of our customer service and our “Southern Hospitality” that we have and will always provide!
