Cobb Recognized as a 2016 Canon Partner of the Year

Cobb Technologies was recently recognized as a 2016 National Canon Partner of the Year, an accolade that only 11 other dealers across the country received. In addition to this honor, Cobb also achieved Diamond PLUS dealer status for the support of Canon’s Océ product line over the last year.

Canon’s recognition of Cobb Technologies’ efforts comes as no surprise to the large format team at Cobb.

“These milestones are a testament to the successful partnership that Canon and Cobb have shared over the last 10 years,” said Tim Kitchen, Cobb’s large format product manager. “Just within the last four years, Cobb Technologies has become the most successful Océ supplier in Virginia, as well as one of the most successful in the nation.”

According to Kitchen, Cobb has made a concerted effort to hire the industry’s best and brightest technicians to complement Canon’s cutting-edge Océ wide format equipment. This, he says, has made all the difference in Cobb’s ability to offer clients an unparalleled customer service experience.

“Currently, we have 10 technicians on staff who can solve pretty much anything that our clients happen to throw at them,” said Kitchen. “In the event that they’re unable to resolve an issue, our status as a high-level Canon dealer means that we have direct access to leverage Canon’s solutions team.”

On April 20, 2017, Cobb will be hosting the Digital Print Intelligence (DPI) Workshop, a workshop designed to help print professionals get the most out of their equipment. In addition to Canon, representatives from Konica Minolta, Formax, and EFI will be on-hand to answer questions and help professionals sharpen their skill sets.

Cobb Cuts the Ribbon on New Headquarters

On June 2, 2016, Cobb Technologies celebrated the opening of its new headquarters facility in Glen Allen with an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony. Over 70 guests attended the office technology provider’s opening, including U.S. Rep. Dave Brat (R-7th District) and several members from the Henrico County Board of Supervisors.

The new building, located on Technology Park Drive in Glen Allen, is a 63,289 square foot facility. Previously, Cobb Technologies’ warehouse had been a separate location from its office building located at the intersection of Staples Mill and Parham Road.

“We had been searching over the past few years for a new building that would allow us to integrate both our office and our warehouse space,” said Toni Gorveatt, Cobb’s president. “Once we found this location, I knew immediately that this was our next home.”

Rather than outsourcing the building’s interior design and workspace layout, Gorveatt hand-picked employees from each of Cobb’s departments to give input on the facility’s re-design.

“We know that once potential clients step foot in our new building, they’ll have a great customer experience,” said Derek Yancey, Cobb’s marketing director. “Our new building is quite literally a reflection of the hard work and dedication of Cobb’s employees.”

The company looks forward to updating its branch locations within the next few years to ensure that Cobb’s look matches its cutting-edge technology.
