Our Story


When Bernie Eiken started Check Office Equipment in 1964, he wasn’t aware of the impact he was going to make in office products for many decades to come.

  His passion for helping the business community rubbed off on his two sons, Dan and Brad. As both became involved, Check was able to grow with branches in Rolla, Osage Beach, and Columbia.

  Shortly After the sale of Check in 1996, Brad became partners in an office furniture dealership in Columbia. Dan and his wife Dawn, acquired another local established business Samco Business Products, in 2001.

  In 2003, Samco built its new facility designed to accommodate the most extensive office furniture showroom and on-staff interior design services in our community. Additional groundwork for the future was laid as well. The third generation, their son Jeremy became part of the organization.

  Along with office furniture, Samco is a leader in office supplies and services. Their state-of-the-art software system and distribution network provides next day delivery across the country. They are currently serving customers in twenty-three states!

  Samco was the recipient of the Jefferson City Area Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the year award in 2004. Their team has also been recognized for customer service excellence three years in a row!

  Our local ownership and family operation has kept us focused on the reasons for growth...great employees, community service, and treating our customers like friends and neighbors they are.   For improved office efficiency and our family commitment, Check Samco!
