President of Altek
Ray Derstine, President and Altek founder, started Altek Business Systems in 1991. Beginning his career in Telford in 1981, Ray started as a Sales Associate and eventually Sales Manager for a regional Canon Office Equipment Dealer. In 1987, after five years with Canon, he spent one year with Computers and Software. A year later Ray, along with three other partners, had an opportunity to form his own company in Montgomery County. He provided Panasonic and Copystar copiers and fax equipment to local companies in Telford, Harleysville, Souderton, and Sellersvilles.
In 1991, Ray followed his dream and opened the doors to Altek Business Systems, Inc. Altek opened with a goal of providing local businesses with the latest in quality technology, backed by dependable service, and sold at a fair price. With hard work, and a focus that the customer is the lifeblood of the business and as such should always be treated fairly, and with honesty and respect, Ray was able to grow the business and attract additional quality. Today, Altek helps thousands of people in Southeastern Pennsylvania to achieve their goals by helping them to operate more efficiently and profitably.
Today, you will still find Ray focusing on providing dependable service to all of Altek’s customers. Ray is sitting down to speak with any of our clients or companies interested in working with Altek. He is happy to assist in finding the best solutions to help your business succeed.
Ray is active in community, civic and church organizations. He also enjoys music, golf fishing, and shooting sporting clays. Ray and his wife Cindy reside in Upper Salford, Pa and have four daughters.
