Our company was founded in 1939 by Ralph Archnial, and was originally known as Alameda Typewriter. The company is currently owned and operated by Michael Woods, who took over in 1979. Alameda Business Machines continued to sell and service typewriters. They then expanded into fax machines, copiers, printers, and word processors. Once the personal computer industry began to bloom in the early eighties, Alameda Business Machines then took an active roll in personal computers. Alameda Business Machines started building and servicing IBM PC's and IBM clones, while continuing to sell, repair, and service all types of office equipment on the retail and commercial levels. Since then, the company is continuing to stay ahead of the competition by offering quality products and services at very competitive prices. Starting in 1994, Alameda Business Machines started providing networking options for Microsoft Windows, as well as all the necessary cables and software support.

What Alameda Business Machines can provide that many of the large retailers and discount stores continue to fail at is quality technical support before, during, and after the sale, and each customer is treated as an individual, not an invoice. Alameda Business Machines can do this and still provide competitive pricing and quality support. We constantly strive in the hope that doing business at Alameda Business Machines will be a positive experience for you.

Customer Testimonials

I've been using ABM Computers for over 20 years they've helped me get out of jams many times, they even donated a computer to help me assist a needy family. Once I was in South America at a surgical conference and had trouble downloading my speech, they came to my rescue within minutes. These people are simply the best.

I appreciate the good service and communication when dealing with ABM Computers. I most appreciate their patience with all my questions, even the most basic, and their willingness to offer ideas and opinions without being pushy. Most recently they worked on my Acer laptop (purchased from ABM in 2011). I also purchased a refurbished IMAC all in one that I am very happy with. It is great to have a local business that I am so satisfied with.

My family and I have been going to Alameda Business Machines for a very long time. They have always been extremely friendly and professional. Whenever I have a sick computer, they are who I go to. They fix the problem and return it to me with a few days. My mother is the one who suggested Michael to me first and I'm glad she did! He and Jesse never seize to amaze me! GREAT JOB!!!
