It was in 1937 that Nathan Kristt established Kristt Co. as a single proprietorship with the help of his dad, Harry. They started by selling and repairing big heavy L.C. Smith manual typewriters in their house.
In 1969, Les Kristt graduated Cornell University and joined the firm. During the winter of '69 there were 4 persons working at Kristt Co. In 1975, after incorporating and with a great deal of hard work and good fortunes, the first part of our home was built at 369 Broadway, Monticello. At that time, we had 7 employees and 7500 square feet of space. In 1977, Nathan passed away and Les Kristt became President of the corporation.
In 1981, Kristt Co. became an authorized Mita (now Kyocera) copier dealer. That marked the beginning of an intensive push to become a first class, well-trained office equipment and supply center. In 1984, “the house next door” was purchased and transformed into “The Art Shoppe” & “The Frame Game.” In 1984, Mr. Gene Kelly joined Kristt Co. as a driver. We also put on our first addition of a 3000 square foot warehouse. In 1985, we connected the main building to “The Art Shoppe” with an interesting 4500 square foot showroom. In 1987, we added on another 3000 square foot warehouse. In 1990, we opened a satellite store in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. Read more
