Bay Copy has celebrated its 47th anniversary as the company continues to earn recognition in the industry and further expand its market.
Ray Belanger, CEO of Bay Copy, and a resident of Norwell, MA, has served as CEO of this business since 1992. The company was founded in 1972 by his father, Ray Belanger Sr., who retired in the 1990s.
Bay Copy today is a recognized leader in the Greater Boston area in Managed Print Services (MPS). The company provides services including the sale, leasing and servicing of copiers and printers, and supporting technology, to a wide range of industries across the legal, educational, medical/healthcare, banking and financial services, and business-to-business sectors. They have client relationships with a number of well-known businesses and institutions in the region south of Boston, including the South Shore Chamber of Commerce, where CEO Ray Belanger is an active member and is former Chairman of the Board of Directors. In addition to their market presence on the South Shore and throughout Greater Boston, the firm is known nationally through its involvement in several trade associations. Belanger serves on the Lexmark Dealer Advisory Council, and he is a founding member and former President of the national trade association Select Dealer Group.
Belanger noted, “It’s amazing to see how our industry has evolved over the decades. Our company and our industry continues to promote the MPS model to help businesses save significantly on time, labor and costs, and results in a better quality of document generation.” He added, “That means that Bay Copy has increasingly shifted its model from a company that sells and services office equipment to one that analyzes the costs of a business in document generation and provides an efficiency audit to see what savings can be achieved by leveraging the benefits of technology.”
“We have become even closer partners with our customers,” he said, adding “We help them understand how to best use the technology to streamline their work flows, reduce costs and drive productivity.”
He said that, in addition to the migration toward MPS, he has seen an uptick in companies aspiring to become more “paperless,” greater use of high-quality color copiers, and a greater attention to security and protection of data.
Belanger said, “We are proud of this 47-year milestone. I thank our great team, our clients and all who have helped us along the way. We look forward to what the next years will bring and eagerly anticipate hitting our 50th.”
