With over 60 years of industry experience, RJ Young has grown from a small dealership into one of the largest independent office equipment dealers in the country.
Becoming RJ Young
In 1955, Robert J. Young Sr. opened the doors to his Ditto duplicating dealership along with four employees in Nashville, TN. After twelve years of hard work, the company’s hard work paid off as they became a premier photocopier dealer and in 1977, added Ricoh, Canon, HP, Muratec, and Océ to its fleet.
In 1986, Robert J. Young Sr. retired after selling controlling interest of the company to John T. Crunk, who had worked alongside him since 1958. Continuing the tradition of being family owned and operated, John Crunk became the company’s Chairman of the Board in 1996, while his son, John T. Crunk, Jr. became President and CEO. In 1999, the Robert J. Young Company condensed its name to the RJ Young Company, which would then be shortened to the present-day name – RJ Young.
