Unwavering Integrity and Commitment
to Innovation Since 1981

Who We Are

Systel Business Equipment is the largest independent dealer of office automation equipment in the Southeast. Now, more than 40 years since being established, Systel has become an award-winning, multi-million dollar company that proudly serves all 100 counties of North Carolina as well as parts of South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia.

What Drives Us

The commitment to innovation, quality, and attention to detail that Systel is known for has contributed to its exponential growth in the days since it first began. Despite the growth and success that Systel has experienced, customer service remains the number one priority.

What We Do

Systel recognizes that business needs are changing, and has focused much of its efforts on working with manufacturers who are developing technologies that are designed to help effectively and efficiently manage businesses. In order to stand behind the products we promote, Systel tests all of the latest technology within our own business environment to ensure the products and services are up to par for our customers.

Where We Come From

Systel Business Equipment was founded on November 1, 1981, by current President and CEO Keith Allison in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Beginning with a handful of employees, Systel has now grown to over 250 employees and has since become a leader in its industry. Allison’s three daughters are all working in the business with the intent to sustain the company’s success by expanding product offerings and solutions that offer innovation and sustainability, all while continuing to carry out their father’s vision.
