Dive Deeper into Discount Office Equipment’s History
After dabbling in army surplus furniture after World War II ended, founder Aaron Merzin recognized the demand at that time for desks and other office furniture and equipment. Thus, in the year 1948, he formed Detroit Office Equipment, investing in a 15,000-square-foot building on Linwood and Philadelphia in Detroit, Michigan, to offer office furniture and equipment to businesses.
The company experienced phenomenal growth, and eight years later the company moved into a 26,000-square-foot building at 6 Mile and Livernois, across from University of Detroit. When a fire ensued in 1965, the business moved to a two-story, 26,000-square-foot facility, at 7 Mile and Lodge. In 1973, the company nearly doubled its space to 46,000-square-feet when it moved to Dearborn.
When Aaron semi-retired in 1978 and worked in the business as a consultant, his three sons, Mitch, Neil, and Jeff Merzin took over the business. In 1983, as the country experienced a recession, the Merzins' renamed the company to Discount Office Equipment and moved to Berkley. This showroom provides new office furniture at a discount.
Three years later, they opened a second showroom specifically for used/previously owned and clearance furniture. This furniture was previously offered in the new furniture showroom, and for nearly 30 years has been located at the Oak Park showroom.
