History

RK Dixon has a long and rich history of making businesses run better.

The RK Dixon story begins with Robert Dixon and a successful 20-year track record in copier sales with 3M.  In 1983, Robert and Carla Dixon felt the timing was right to turn a new page and they founded RK Dixon with office locations in Davenport, Iowa, and Peoria and Rockford, Illinois.

While technology has gone through dramatic changes over the year, our values have remained the same: to exceed customer expectations by seeing their business through their eyes.

It’s been quite the journey, but it’s just the beginning – we’ve got our hearts set on making more history!
