Now in its 69th year of business, Rainer Office Machines is proud to be a part of the history of EL Dorado
– and yet remain a business that is local and innovative in the services it offers to South Arkansas.
Your friends and neighbors make up the experienced staff at Rainer. With nearly 200 years of experience
behind them, the staff offers customers knowledgeable help with their purchases.
In 1972, Jim Carelock purchased Rainer – originally a typewriter company above the old bus station in the
United Insurance building. He moved the business to its present location, 300 N. Jefferson, expanding the
showroom to offer a broader range of office supplies for the convenience of its customers. Rainer evolved
to include a full line of copiers, computers, and office machines for sale or rent. When a business needs
to lease equipment, Rainer offers in-house leasing – enabling us to reinvest money into the local economy.
In 1985, Mr. Carelock opened Alpha Business Center (sister company to Rainer), a full service office product
company in Crossett, AR.
