At Office Elements, we take pride in our beginnings, the impact they have on how we conduct business today and how our past will direct our future. Our business is predicated on one simple premise: a commitment to a life-long partnership with our clients, employees and manufacturers.

Our Background
Iowa Office Supply was started when Barney Roberts began selling office supplies and equipment in 1961 and his success enabled him to open his first store in 1967. Even then, the IOS philosophy was that products would not be sold if the company couldn't service them. Iowa Office Supply continued to expand with new locations, in large part because of its excellent service. With each new location came experienced personnel with added skills and services.

As IOS was growing their supply, machine and service capabilities, General Business Interiors Inc. was founded as a typewriter and supply company by Ben and Betty Shapiro in 1964. Shapiro saw a bright future in the fast growing furniture industry and branched into that business during the late sixties. General Business Interiors developed into a full-service office furniture dealership providing a wide range of office furnishings from the industry’s leading manufacturers and a broad scope of services. General Business established itself with manufacturers to leverage relationships to secure favorable terms for customers.

Both General Business Interiors and Iowa Office Supply were built on a set of firmly held beliefs – high quality products and unsurpassed customer service and support. In January 2005, these shared values and complimentary products and services brought General Business Interiors and Iowa Office Supply together; expanding the geographic area over seven locations across Iowa and South Dakota. Together we offer a full breadth of office solutions to our customers – furniture, equipment, technology and supplies. For over forty years, our companies have individually focused on quality products and outstanding service. We take great pride together to continue this tradition with a new name OFFICE ELEMENTS.
