Stargel Office Solutions officially celebrated its 35th anniversary recently with a company-wide meeting and celebration. Slade Stargel said, “Jack, Tyson and I are so deeply grateful to our many loyal clients and our wonderful employees who have been with us on this journey, and we look forward to what the future will bring. We were pleased to be able to celebrate our anniversary with our team.”
At its inception, Stargel Office Solutions looked very different than today. Jack Stargel, a Texas Tech University graduate, left a company he had been a partner in to launch this new business at 1200 Blalock Drive. One of the employees who came with Jack to start the new company, Tanya Dibbern, remains a part of the Stargel Office Solutions team today, serving in the role of Contracts Administrator.
In the early days, their product and service lines included typewriters, facsimile (fax) machines, and calculators. As technology began to advance, the first iteration of office equipment was analog, which gave way to digital. Stargel Office Solutions was a leader in embracing the conversion to digital. In 1990, Stargel Office Solutions began its partnership with Toshiba; the firm was recently named a Toshiba ProMasters Certified Elite Dealer for 2022, an award it has received multiple times. Along the way, Stargel Office Solutions also was named Toshiba Dealer of the Year.
Tyson Stargel notes, “Expanding our offerings to include Managed Print Service and establishing a strong IT presence have been great growth strategies for us. Our company has changed and grown with the times to stay ahead of the changing technological world. We help our clients manage their networks along with document management needs so they can manage their businesses better. By adhering to our Stargel core values of honesty, integrity, ‘customer first,’ professionalism, competitiveness and being passionate, we seek to become the trusted technology advisor for each of our clients.”
