HistoryThe company entered the U.S. market in 1982 as Murata Business Systems to sell fax machines through private-label agreements with multiple U.S. companies. In 1985, the Murata began marketing its fax products under its own name from its corporate headquarters in Dallas, Texas. The company changed its name in 1992 to Muratec and realigned its business model away from retail in order to focus on sales and distribution exclusively through a national business-to-business dealer channel. Today, Muratec is a leading supplier of desktop and workgroup MFP solutions to over 550 office equipment dealerships throughout North America.
Muratec is also frequently honored by the distribution channel in which we serve.
