From Our President
Hello, and thanks for your interest in RK Black! Since our beginnings in 1952 we have had one simple goal – to deliver great value in an honest, friendly manner. We specialize in implementing technology solutions that work . . . if it has to do with information flow & control, we can help! With over 130 associates we are large enough to handle your most complex applications and still small enough to care.
Often I am asked what differentiates us from our competition. The fact is, we are fortunate to compete with many fine companies in our marketplace. I believe our company culture, as defined by what we call Corporate Intent, is a key component in our success. It guides us in everyday decisions and long-term direction, and keeps us grounded in what is important. Because of this, we are able to attract and retain great people who are passionate (most of the time) about what we do.
LOCAL: Another important factor is that we are a second generation, Oklahoma-based company. This gives us a great advantage over national companies who have to make broad-brush decisions that are often controlled by short-term reactions to their stock price or bonus plans. All facets of our business are under one roof so we can make fast decisions that are focused on our marketplace.
LONGTERM: I started working for my parents in 1966 when I was 10 years old, helping in the warehouse for 25 cents an hour (I was probably overpaid). As a teenager I worked in our service department during the summers, and when I graduated from college I moved to Enid, Oklahoma as the sales rep for our northwestern marketplace. It was there that I learned the importance of constant contact with my clients. Today, I get to work with a team of talented professionals who love to challenge me to be my best so that we can serve you better than those other fine competitors.
LOYAL: Because our success depends upon serving our clients well, we channel our energies toward being your trusted advisor. Think of us as your VP of Documents. If we don’t have a solution that will work for you, we’ll help you find it from another company. We know if we care for you as a friend first then we have a greater chance of building a valuable, lasting relationship.
LOTS: We have LOTS & LOTS of great products & services, supported by product specialists who know how to design solutions that work. All you need to know is one name – RK Black . . . We’re here to help! Just give us a call @ (405) 943-9800; and if I can ever be of service please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on my cell, (405) 474-7745. I’m here to help, too!
Again, thanks for your interest in our company, we look forward to building a long-term relationship that delivers Value AND a little fun along the way!
Chris Black, President
