History & Staff

Our Mission & Vision

Since 1958 American Micro has been un-boxing business with innovative technology and a commitment to service. Technology changes daily, yet we have found a way to remain on the cutting edge of systems that manage paper. We’ve come a long way since 1958 in our depth of knowledge and experience. Today, American Micro leads the way in technology applications that help create a paperless environment.

At American Micro we help make companies paperless. It is our mission to educate our customers about their document management and document conversion choices and the benefits of good records management. We’ve been around for 50 years and will still be here when records management changes again. It is important to remember that technology is a means to an end, not an end in itself. The objective of document management should always be a proper business solution.
