Advanced Filing Systems is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business focused on footprint reduction of your physical space. We make space smaller and more efficient with high density storage equipment, rotary storage units and workstations that roll, fold and store.
Jan Stoutamire founded our company in 1988. She’d heard about the filing systems business from a family member and believed she could make it go in South Florida. Door to door cold-calls in our hometown of Homestead, Florida led to a growing customer base. It looked so promising that Jan decided we needed another Rep on the road. I was nominated. Jan and I decided to throw all our weight into growing our company and along with the Air Force Reserves it supported us and our two kids.
By the fall of 2007 our continued growth motivated us to acquire a competitor, Florida Office Systems
. Their history went back to the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair where the first ever Four Drawer Vertical File Cabinet was introduced by Remington Rand. I believed Florida Office Systems’ strengths in banking, education and local government would complement our health care customer base to fuel continued expansion. In 2014, our revenues are above the original 2007 level. Our financial strength has enabled us to add seven fulltime W-2 employees and four part-time 1099s. With our new Federal GSA Contract for Comprehensive Furniture Management Services and certification by the Veteran’s Administration as a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business we believe 2014 will be the best year in our 26 year history.
