Peak Business Equipment, Inc. (Peak) was founded in 1980 to offer an alternative service solution for direct mail equipment in the St. Louis, MO area. The idea was simple and popular with customers: “Offer the best support we can and make sure it’s a good value too” – Ernest Polk – Founder of Peak Business Equipment, Inc.
By the time Ernest Polk retired and sold the business to his oldest son Greg Polk in 2011, the business had grown into a full-service distributor for some of the best manufacturers in the world for equipment and products for direct mail, packaging and print finishing.
In early 2015, the company became the exclusive distributor for Kirk-Rudy equipment and products in a region covering five Midwestern states (Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska). Kirk-Rudy is a US manufacturer of industrial inkjet and high-speed automation systems used in packaging and print-finishing applications and a key supplier to Peak Business Equipment.
Today our focus remains on being a partner that customers can rely upon for technical support and expertise in choosing the right equipment for their application and processes.
