The Chamber Ambassadors honored Lee Office Equipment Company as the Leading Business of the Week for January 6, 2020.
Founded in 1949 by U.S. WWII veteran Joe Lee, Lee Office Equipment Company has become the one stop office supply shop for the Valdosta and South Georgia community.
“All of us at Lee would say we love the business relationships we’ve developed over the many years of service to our friends in the South Georgia Community,” said Tag Welch, vice president. “These friendships have gone beyond business dealings into our schools, churches, teams, and civic organizations. Another thing we love is helping people every day in their business decisions. Some decisions as simple as what type of pen to use or as complicated as placing 100 employees efficiently in workspace, bring us enjoyment.”
Lee continues to give their customers an all-out experience from the time of purchase to the destination.
“As previously mentioned, we are geared up for service,” said Welch. “Free desk top delivery still differentiates us from most e-commerce or big box stores. Buy a case of copy paper from the other guys and you’d better be big and strong because you will have to handle it from your door or dock to where it will be used. Lee Office carries it to its final destination.”
One great accomplishment Lee is proud of is the years of service in the Valdosta and South Georgia community.
Welch stated, “70 years in business is our greatest accomplishment to date. You can fake bad service and business principles for a little while, but not 70 years!”
Lee is a proud member of the Valdosta-Lowndes Chamber of Commerce.
“In the 70’s and 80’s, until we became more established, the Chamber was an avenue for new contacts and relationships,” said Welch.
Mr. Joe Lee, had a huge influence on the Valdosta- Moody AFB relationship, by being in leadership and sponsoring Red Carpet events for new military personnel in our community. While methods continue to change in business relations, the message of the chamber must remain consistent in attracting, developing and farming new and existing business.
