Nearly 40 Years of Excellence
From a small shop in Burlington, Massachusetts to a nationally recognized and respected office technology dealer, NBM is proud of our long and tenured history. Through recessions, natural disasters, and the latest pandemic, we have remained a steadfast presence in the New England business community by delivering unparalleled customer service that local businesses can count on.
NORTHERN BUSINESS MACHINES OPENS
President and Owner William F. Tracia starts NBM in 1985 with only 2 employees. Shortly thereafter, NBM becomes an authorized Sharp electronics dealer for both copiers and fax machines.

EXPANSION AND GROWTH
NBM earns recognition as a trusted and reputable office equipment dealer in New England. NBM purchases a 29,000 square foot building to accommodate its vast growth, finding its permanent home on Terry Avenue in Burlington. The 90s bring expansion to other parts of New England with the opening of NBM’s Boston branch in 1992, southern Massachusetts branch in 1993, and New Hampshire branch in 1998. NBM emerges as one of the top Sharp dealers in the country, and the “go-to” dealer for sales and service of office equipment in the New England area.

NBM adapts to accommodate the modern workspace, offering digital products and solutions that seamlessly integrate with company networks. NBM opens two new divisions – a Managed Print Services division in 2008 and a Managed IT Services division in 2012 - to better service the needs of our customers. As our customers’ technological needs evolve, so too does NBM as a company. NBM continues to achieve excellence as a Top 10 Sharp equipment dealer in the country while also adding Konica Minolta and Ricoh to its product lines during this time.
