Our Company

History

Harold Palmer is the founder of Micron Business Products. MBP got its start in 1972, and its employees took pride in providing the best in office machines and repairs. MBP began rebuilding toner cartridges in 1992, and a manager was hired who was specifically trained in laser technology.

The world of business—and its technology—has changed completely since 1972. Many companies in the Madison area were offering similar customer goods and care then, but Micron is the only one of those companies still in existence today.

Harold Palmer, Founder

A transplant from West Virginia, Harold was a salesman for a candy maker in Chicago when he became interested in business machines. As he moved from sales rep to district manager, Harold made many of the personal contacts that allowed him to start Micron Business Products in 1972. Micron originally sold calculators and other business machines.

Ed Palmer, Sales Manager
Ed moved to the Midwest and worked as a salesman before joining Micron in 1973. At that time Micron didn’t have its own service department, so Ed would pack and send office machines off for repair. Ed became service manager in 1977, and has remained with the company through its many changes.

 

Greg Palmer, Service Manager

Greg came to Micron with a lot of experience in customer service. When Micron moved to fill the laser printer service industry in 1995, Greg’s 17+ years  of printer repair and sales adds to the foundation here at MBP .
