Carraway Office Solutions: Serving Clients FIRST

Faith | Integrity | Respect | Service | Trust


A Dream Brought to Life.

In the 1960s, Mr. Sidney Carraway worked for a large office supply company and was unhappy with the level of customer service being offered. Sidney felt that he could open his own business and provide the exemplary service and fairness that customers deserved. Sidney shared his desire to better serve customers with his wife Bernadine, and in 1962, the foundation of Carraway Office Solutions began as Carraway Typewriter Company.

Burney Carraway worked alongside side his father, Sidney, to learn the business as it prospered over the years. Carraway Typewriter Company transitioned with the evolution of technology migrating to fax machines, computers, and copiers, thus changing the name to Carraway Business Machines in the late 80’s. In 1994, Burney purchased the business from his parents and transitioned it to its current name, Carraway Office Solutions.

Expanding the Business.

In 2003, Burney expanded the business with the purchase of Daughety’s Office Equipment in Kinston, NC. The Carraway and Daughtey families had been friends for quite some time before the purchase and agreed to keep the Daughety name out of respect for the family and appreciation for the reputation the business had earned.

In 2022, Carraway Office Solutions and Daughety’s Office Equipment consolidated both offices to Ayden, NC to serve as a central location to better serve our clients. Putting all our staff in one location allows us to maximize our resources and put our clients FIRST.

Where are we now?

Today, Carraway Office Solutions still operates on the same morals and values Sidney set out with over 60 years ago. Our main goal at COS with every interaction is to “Make a client, not just a sale.” We are a client FIRST company and genuinely want to utilize our products and services to help your business operate as efficiently as possible.
