Our History


Serving Tech Valley since 1927

Opening for business on the corner of Lodge and State Streets in downtown Albany in 1927, the Camera Exchange is where it all began. From there, a name change to State Photo and a move to our current location on the corner of North Allen and Bradford Streets in Albany. Eventually, the name would again change to NATIONAL Graphic Supply as the business grew to include not only photo and camera supplies, but a wider range of products.

In 1975 NATIONAL Graphic Supply began selling Mita photocopiers under a division that would become NATIONAL Business Equipment and Supply. In 2000, Kyocera purchased Mita for its North American distribution. Since then, Kyocera and NATIONAL Business Technologies have partnered to bring our customers the highest quality products. In the 35+ years since we began selling photocopiers we have seen many changes and advancements in office technology. But one thing always remained the same, the superior service that customers could expect from NATIONAL Business Technologies.

Throughout our history, NATIONAL Business Technologies has always been a Capital Region (Tech Valley) business. As we continue to grow regionally, we are committed to making our community and the surrounding area a better place to work and live.

With the many exciting changes in the office equipment industry on the horizon, NATIONAL Business Technologies customers can always count on one thing- superior customer service. From the moment the doors opened in 1927, the customer has always been the highest priority.
