The Witt Company – an independent provider of document management and imaging products and services – became the newest member of the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber on Friday afternoon.
Officials gathered at the companys office at 1150 Commerce St. for the ribbon-cutting ceremony welcoming the Pacific Northwests fastest growing provider of copy and printer product services to the Chamber.
To be included in the community, you have to be a member, said branch manager Rich Wetzel, one of the Tacoma offices five employees. of joining the Chamber. Youre only doing half of it if youre not.
Wetzel was pleased with the companys location on Commerce Street, primarily because it wanted to be part of the citys downtown core. We thought that was really important, said Wetzel, who resides in Tacoma. Another plus of the location is the great traffic in the area, Wetzel said, citing the nearby Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center that is currently under construction, the Link light rail and proximity to the freeway. The companys locale – in the heart of what Wetzel called copier alley – also lets the Witt Company keep on eye on the competition.
Following Wetzels remarks, a red ribbon was stretched out before the front counter and the giant novelty scissors were brought out for the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Witt Company employees Eric Wallace, GEM account specialist, and Jeff Fortney, color printing specialist, joined Chamber membership representative Patricia Mannie in the official ribbon-cutting.
Following the ceremony, guests were given a brief tour of the office, where employees explained the state-of-the-art technology and services the Witt Company provides.
Founded in 1961, the Witt Company is a Portland, Ore.-based company that sells and services copiers, faxes, printers and digital duplicators.
