Founded in 1976 by Karl Dutczak, with his son Rick at his side, Karl Business Machines typewriter shop provides maintenance and repair services for vintage typewriters and business equipment. After finishing school, Rick started working at the company full time in 1978 and eventually taking over the company from his father in 1987. Rick has since maintained the family typewriter shop with great pride, providing continued dedication and excellence in serving his customers. The goal of Karl Business Machines is to always keep the family-oriented atmosphere while providing our customers with the detail-oriented levels of service on which they have come to rely. After all these years, even with all the new technology available today, we still believe in the personal touch.
