HISTORY & MISSION
American Solutions for Business was founded in 1981 and has evolved into a leading distributor of print, promotional products, office supplies, eCommerce and marketing solutions. As a customer-driven company, our mission is to provide solutions that streamline business processes, enhance productivity and increase creativity while reducing client costs. As a valued customer, you’ll become part of our family. With over 7,000 suppliers and 800 sales associates and support staff, American is your connection to a solid network of people and possibilities.
It’s always been about the American Dream for Larry Zavadil, Founder and CEO. His passion to create opportunities, take chances, make choices and help others inspired him to begin his forms distribution company (American Business Forms) in the basement of his home in Glenwood, MN. From this humble beginning and with his vision, Larry has seen his company grow from a small distributorship into an industry leader.
In 2000, we changed our name to American Solutions for Business and became employee-owned – empowering employees and sales associates to make decisions while securing our path for the future. American has sales associates and support staff throughout the United States, doing business in 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico. American's business concept is simple – we empower and support qualified sales professionals who provide customers with the highest degree of service and satisfaction.
We believe in relationships – people buy from people and American is committed to the balanced blend of technology, products and people
