Steve Valenta | President
In 1987, after working for several office equipment companies, Steve was unhappy with the limitations that these companies put on his ability to provide good customer service. He decided the only way he could provide clients with the best possible customer service would be through establishing his own business. He needed to find a product line to sell, so he bought a Canon dealership in Waynesboro which gave him the ability to sell and service Canon products. Soon after Offix was born in Northern VA.
Years later, Offix continually gets client referrals because of the excellent customer service it provides. Its team members provide quality service to all clients, whether they are single-person businesses, churches, non-profits, the Federal government, or commercial businesses.
With over 33 years in the industry, Stephen Valenta has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to all types of office technology.
Kim Valenta | Vice President

In addition, she had gained financial experience as a controller for another company, where she dealt with pricing, and cost-analyses. She brings over 30 years of solid business experience to Offix.
Kim knows that the best part of working at Offix is the family environment, “We like to stay regimented and follow rules, but when it comes to employees, we always want to take care of them. I believe that’s why we have very little employee turnover. The employees are comfortable here, and they know that we care about them.”
