TLC Strengthens its Foothold in NC with the Addition of Stepp Services

Total Laser Care of NC, Inc. (TLC)  continues its expansion of services and product offering, this time by bringing Stepp Services, Inc. into its organization. That combination produces a very well-equipped, well-manned resource for copiers, label and wide format printers, digital displays, and information technology (IT) services.

TLC has been a very successful independent provider of new and refurbished copiers multifunction printers, and wide format plotters. Sharp, Xerox and Canon large format are the company’s core brand names in its copy/print menu. IT Managed Services and Sharp’s digital displays have become a more recent part of that lineup.

Stepp Services was founded in 1986 and has been owned and operated by Darrell and Esther Stepp ever since. It too has built a well-earned base of customers who have relied on the company for high-performance printers and copiers. It too supports HP and Xerox as well as Epson, Canon, and Brother. Sato and Afinia are the two primary label printer brands on the Stepp line card.

 “We are excited about the potential created as we combine the solutions and experience Stepp Services has gathered over the past three or more decades with our own offering,” said Chris and Rick Echols, Owners of TLC.  “You couldn’t have asked for a more compatible combination of technology and expertise for this region.” 

It was also announced that Darrel and Esther Stepp have joined the TLC sales team, a transition the Echols say will benefit customers throughout North Carolina. “The Stepp’s have more than 30 years of experience in business systems,” they added. “Their familiarity with the technology and the workflow patterns of businesses, schools and government agencies is nothing less than remarkable. We’re very glad to have them on our side.”
