Powerful Business Solutions, Since 1961
Established in 1961, Advanced Business Machines (ABM) began with sales and service of typewriters. Over the decades, the office evolved and so did we, adding copiers and fax machines to our portfolio. Then the copier industry changed forever at the turn of the century as they went from analog to digital.
Our president, Peter Parisi, bought ABM in 2001, expanding the company and capturing a large part of the market in Rhode Island because of quality service and great products. Growing from annual sales of $500,000 in 2001 to $10,000,000 a decade later, we received multiple Fastest Growing Companies awards during this time period, according to Providence Business News Book of Lists. In 2011, ABM was transformed and rebranded as INNOVEX, signaling a broadening of offerings that included IT services, as well as digital marketing, all geared to the business needs of Rhode Island. We also expanded our reach to include the Boston metro area.
Now a multi-million dollar business with over 50 employees, INNOVEX is separating its technology offerings from the marketing ones, and putting our focus on technology. In this age of converging technologies, our plan is to be the region’s single source for the technology that businesses require.
