Illinois Wholesale Cash Register (IWCR) was incorporated in 1976 in Palatine Illinois. It was founded to bridge the technology gap created by manufactures accelerating their product development and leaving the end users with no choice other than to purchase new. IWCR offered an alternative.
In 1985 the company built its first new building, a 15,000 sq. ft. facility in Palatine Illinois. Ten years later we had out grown that facility and purchased a 50,000 sq. ft. facility in Hoffman Estates Illinois. For the next 10 years the business grew at a rate of about 15% per year and soon that facility was too small. The growth of the company and the size of the current facility were creating too many inconveniences that made it essential to make one more move. In 2006 IWCR built a 125,000 sq. ft. state of the art building in Elgin Illinois. It was now possible for us to house our entire inventory under one roof. It was now also possible to divide shipping and receiving into two separate and distinct areas. The new space also allowed us to become much more efficient. We are now capable of effectively handling any challenge that comes our way.
In recent years IWCR has increased its international development so that our services now are used in all parts of the globe, from Egypt to Australia from England to Panama. IWCR has developed trading partners that seem to be growing on the same scale as the North American continent.
Our reputation as both a competitive and reliable supplier of P.O.S. terminals, parts and features has grown in line with our growth of business. We have spared no expense to stay at the top of the technology curve. Our development of communications software has now allowed us to be on par with the requests of our expansive and sophisticated customer base.
In short we are in line and prepared for the future. We hope that you consider IWCR for any challenge that faces you.
