Clary Business Machines was established in San Diego in 1954 to market and service Clary adding machines and cash registers. The firm was first incorporated in 1974 and the management has changed once since then. Despite an ever-changing product mix, the company has maintained many old, well-established sales and service relationships with a large quantity of small to large commercial firms as well as government and public institutions. Today Clary's customer list read like "Who's who" in US commerce.
In 2001, the company ventured into Internet Marketing. Multiple websites were developed for various product lines with an emphasis on simplicity, user friendliness and customer education. This strategy helped build very strong relationships with the manufacturers / suppliers and gain customer confidence. The company now owns 12 websites and generates a little over ½ its revenue through Internet sales nationwide. Our product specialists suppliment the Internet content by educating our customers over the phone. Building lifetime relationships with our customers is our top priority.
