Solving STUFF problems is all we think about
For the last 50 years, we've been committed to helping organizations fight the tyranny of STUFF. After all, there is only so much space and an ever-growing amount of STUFF. And in our commitment to helping in this fight, we believe in doing it the right way and standing behind what we do. As a 100% employee-owned business, that matters to ALL of us!
We keep things simple. We tell the truth, keep our word, and do the right thing - because it's simpler that way. People like us, trust us and buy from us because we are free from guile. We work hard, we have fun, then go home to our families. We keep things simple.
We take the complicated and make it simple. Your records, your stuff, your space - all simplified. If it's in your organization and you can touch it, we help you store it, track it and retrieve it using less space and time than you ever thought possible.
In 1972, Patterson Business Systems (PBS) set out on a noble quest to help the good people of North Carolina store and organize file folders filled with very important paper.
By 1994, it seemed that paper was winning the battle with local organizations. PBS, now headquartered in Charlotte, fought back with a new ownership group.
As the 20th Century came to a close, PBS planted a flag in Roanoke, as word had come down across the border that paper also had its grips in Virginia.
With the acquisition of J.E. Pope Company in 2004, a new name emerged - Patterson Pope. By adding offices South Carolina, a new front against untamed information was established.
As paper continued its problematic ways, a new culprit entered the scene - STUFF. In response, Patterson Pope opened a 92,000 square-foot facility in Charlotte in 2006 to house our command center.
In 2007, with the acquisition of United Business Systems, the battle against the tyranny of STUFF emerged in Florida.
STUFF was put on notice in Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia in 2011, when Central Business Group was acquired.
Also in 2011, Patterson Pope launched their content services division, FileSolve, to help tame the proliferation of digital STUFF.
The acquisition of Walter Hopkins (in 2012) and Southern Business Systems (in 2013) meant we'd take the fight to STUFF problems in Georgia and Alabama.
In 2020, Patterson Pope became an ESOP – 100% employee-owned business.
Westward expansion in 2021 led to tussles with STUFF in Arkansas and Mississippi.
What will the future hold for Patterson Pope? It's hard to say, but rest assured that as STUFF changes its manner of mischief, we'll be changing our tactics to keep it in line.
Over the past 50 years, we have learned a lot about taking a project from idea to completion...and beyond. Along the way, we created (and refined) a process that helps us solve all sorts of space and storage problems. That process involves four steps: Survey and Analysis, Planning and Design, Installation and Ongoing Support. Check out this quick video to find out more.
