When Capital Business Machines opened its doors on Main Street in downtown Little Rock in 1939, there was really only one machine available to make offices run more efficiently and productively – the manual typewriter. In fact, the company then was known as Capital Typewriter Company.

More than 70 years later technology has radically changed the workplace with a network of machines that print, copy, fax and scan – backed by a comprehensive service and maintenance agreement – revolutionizing the ways offices run.

Despite the changes in the information management and support solutions his company offers, president Brett Rogers says the foundation of Capital Business Machines’ success remains the same today as it was in the beginning.

“We value our client relationships, and we’re always here to do everything we can to help their businesses run better,” Rogers said. “We want to help you move the information around your office the most efficient way possible, so you can focus on your core business. If your business is insurance, then your business is selling insurance, not clearing paper jams.”

Still located on Main Street in the heart of downtown, the staff of professionals at Capital Business Machines remains focused on the same client-focused principles espoused by the McWilliams family, the company’s founders.

Family Business

The Rogers family’s entry into the field came in 1975, when Bill Rogers, Brett’s father, opened City Business Machines, a competitor of Capital Business Machines. Bill, Brett and Brett’s two brothers, Byron and Bryce, remained with the company after it was sold to a large international firm in 1996, but over the next few years they realized “we were not cut out for the corporate game,” Brett Rogers said.

“We really don’t know any other business,” Brett Rogers said. So the Rogers family was back at the helm of a local company after the opportunity to purchase Capital Business Machines presented itself in 2000.

The three brothers run the business, while Bill Rogers is typically used as great resource, having 30-plus years of knowledge and experience under his belt.
