Where Cedar Rapids Photo Copy Began
Cedar Rapids Photo Copy, Inc. was founded in 1965 by August and the late Anna Mae Schneider. Starting in their home garage, August and Anna Mae ran the business for many years with August performing most of the sales, service and installation. Anna Mae performed bookkeeping and accounting related duties. Eventually, the business became too large for the husband and wife team alone and they hired on additional staff.
The product line has shifted as technology as customers demanded, however, the focus to provide technological advances to businesses remains the same. Core values of providing excellent service and value remain important and a pivotal goal of Cedar Rapids Photo Copy, Inc.
