What really sets Global apart for us is how well they know our business. Not only do I feel comfortable involving them in big purchasing decisions, but they’ve become like an internal team member.

Global is a true Partner for our company.

We see Global as our change agent manager in our relationship. It allows us to see new things, to develop new things to pay attention to, and it also opens up new markets for us to sell into. So by bringing in new technology, new solutions, new ideas, they allow us to be the change we need to be inside our own company.
HOW IT BEGAN
Back in 1995, Tara Giffin and Greg Lamb worked together at a small photo finisher in Boulder, Colorado. Spurred by the changes they were witnessing as the imaging industry trended away from conventional image capture and output to cutting-edge digital equipment, they launched Global Imaging as a reseller for digital printer supplies.
As this shift to digital gained momentum, Greg and Tara quickly saw a need to educate customers. They brought on new distributorships to serve their customers and were soon selling film recorders, drum scanners and the earliest iterations of wide format printers. Over time, the scanners gave way to digital camera backs and with their shared background in photography and photofinishing they became one of the country’s largest digital camera resellers and rental houses – while the wide format printer industry continued to expand. Fast forward to today and we see a company founded on the desire to identify and fill market gaps with the willingness to continuously evolve.
