Our History

Capital Business Machines (CBM) was opened in 1952 By William Hartman, Sr. and has been a family-owned business ever since. Capital Business Machines is currently owned by brothers, Derek and Casey Lowe. With a combined 48 years of experience, the former owner knew the Lowe brothers were the perfect candidates to take ownership of this growing and evolving business, and Derek and Casey were excited to continue providing the customers with the same high-quality sales and service experience they were used to receiving.

For over six decade, CBM’s customers continue to receive the following:

  • Personal and individualized support from the staff
  • A four-hour average service response time
  • Superior quality business equipment and service at a fair price
  • Next-day delivery of supplies
  • A great support team that also happens to live within the same communities.
