Bob Maxwell, a Dunbar native and KOMAX Business Systems co-founder, always enjoyed sales and helping people. “When you sell somebody a piece of equipment or fix a problem with their existing equipment, you’re serving people. We know if we serve our customers, everyone will prosper,” he shared.
KOMAX is an office equipment and IT solutions company serving churches, schools, and businesses in half of West Virginia, as well as several counties in Virginia and eastern Kentucky. Additionally, they are the sole provider of copiers for WV State Government, which has more than 8,000 employees. For six years, Office Dealer Magazine has recognized KOMAX as an “Elite Dealer” – the only one in WV – because of their excellence in customer and community service.
KOMAX has made a huge impact in the community. They’ve raised nearly $150,000 granting wishes for children with serious illness through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and recently became a YWCA Leader for Change. YWCA Leaders for Change are corporate partners whose support sustains all of YWCA Charleston’s programs, which serve the most vulnerable people in Kanawha, Clay, and Boone counties. Leaders for Change tailor their support of the mission of the YWCA and can choose to sponsor any of the YWCA’s signature fundraising events with their annual gift.
