The History of Yost
Founded in 1959 by Willis Yost, Yost Office Systems quickly established a reputation as a reliable and responsive office equipment dealer. Willis stressed the importance of integrity in every transaction and created an environment in which each employee felt valued, treated with respect, recognized for excellence, and challenged to grow personally and professionally.
.In 1995, Yost Office Systems was acquired by Alco Standard, which later became known as IKON Office Solutions. As Yost was integrated into their corporate structure, key company functions such as billing, consumables distribution and service dispatching were moved to regional centers.
In 1999, several former Yost employees decided that they wanted to return to the customer oriented approach that had been so successful for over 40 years, so they licensed the Yost name from Willis’s family and reopened Yost Business Systems. The ultimate validation of our commitment to put the customer first has been the steady migration of former clients back to Yost Business Systems.
We are proud of our reputation of providing excellent customer service and support. Continuing the tradition of national recognition for excellence, We help organizations improve and progress by maintaining their office equipment. We give outstanding customer service at reasonable prices which creates satisfied and loyal customers which in turn gives us an economically viable company for long term success.
