Our Story

Since its inception in 1986, OfficeDNA (previously known as
Symon Business Equipment) has been assisting businesses and organisations like yours.
With our extensive experience and expertise in the industry, we are committed to supporting you as we move forward into the future together.

Established in 1986 under the ownership of Ross Symon, OfficeDNA catered to the equipment needs of everyday offices, offering a comprehensive range of office equipment. In 2007, Dan and Angela Griffiths took
over the ownership of the company, with Ross remaining part of the team until his retirement in 2020. Over the years, OfficeDNA has evolved to meet the changing needs and advancements in technology requested by businesses of all sizes, with a particular focus on photocopiers and printers, which remain at the core of our business.  Our equipment range has now been enhanced to feature cutting-edge visual solutions, including interactive whiteboards, screens, and conference packages. We have partnered with leading global companies to provide the latest and most advanced technology, ensuring that our customers have access to top-of-the-line products that meet their diverse needs.

    Dan Griffiths has been a part of the photocopier industry for many years and has witnessed numerous changes over time, including advancements in technology, increased versatility, and improved reliability of equipment. Having spent the early part of his career in the corporate world, Dan sought a change where he could offer the best solutions to customers without being held back by red tape and bureaucracy that larger corporations often have in place.

  • This is where Dan and Angela's story began, with the ownership of OfficeDNA. Angela recognised the potential for Dan to grow and provide superior customer service without being bogged down by policies and procedures of larger companies. With a nursing background, Angela joined the business to continue her passion for helping people and focused on the administration of the company. With each of them taking on different roles, they have established a strong working relationship that complements and balances each other, resulting in delivering the best possible service to their clients.

“At OfficeDNA, we value our clients and prioritise building strong relationships with them. Thank you for visiting our website, and please do not hesitate to contact us for any inquiries or assistance.”

Nga Mihi,
Dan and Angela Griffiths
