Safeguard Business Systems and Business Forms Inc merge

— Rick & Diana Wilhite, long time Spokane Valley residents and owners of Safeguard Business Systems, have merged Safeguard with Business Forms Inc (BFI). The new company will be called BFISafeguard with headquarters at 301 W. Indiana, Spokane, WA. The two companies, each with strong reputations for quality personal service, expand their cost effective approach to community business support and advocacy.

In 1978, Rick began his career in the Spokane area as an Account Executive with the Coons, Shotwell advertising agency. In 1981, with the Spokane area experiencing a recession, Rick saw an opportunity to become a business owner and purchased the existing Safeguard Business Systems distributorship which had, at that time, 111 customers in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho.

"In the early years of owning our business", said Rick, "it wasn't unusual to put between 35,000 and 45,000 miles a year on the car driving as far north as the Canadian border and as far south as Riggins, Idaho". With a lot of hard work and a quality product, the business grew from over 111 original customers to well over 2,500 today. "We are very proud of the fact that many of those same customers are still with us today along with the hundreds of other customers we've developed over the years," said Diana.
