This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. In 1956, Les Olson, the father of twelve young children, gave up a secure job to create his own company. His grandson, Troy Olson, joins us with an update on that company.


Since 1956, the Les Olson Company has empowered organizations across Utah and Nevada with the technology needed to help increase productivity and gain a competitive edge. Over the past 60 years our family business has become one of Utah’s largest office technology dealers, known today for superior service.

Many know us as a copier company, but now we’re also a leader in IT Services. Over the past decade we’ve helped clients of all sizes through our Outsourced IT. For some we manage everything, while for others we simply assist their in-house team. We also aid those with one-off projects – so if your firm needs IT expertise, just let us know.

As technology evolves our team of friendly, qualified professionals are committed to evolving with it all while helping our customers be productive and secure.

The Les Olson Company now has nearly 300 employees working in nine locations in Utah and Nevada. The third generation now owns and runs the company and there are many fourth generation family members at the firm. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
