History
Founded in 1987, Asay Media Network is the publisher of the original Locator Magazine. It was first published in March 1987 to serve the aftermarket in the office machine and business equipment industry. Initially widely accepted, it grew each month for over 10 years. In 1991, the International Locator was added and circulated through the U.S. State Departments of Commerce in over 150 foreign countries, as well as to foreign embassies inside the US and at Table Top Shows around the world. In addition, we exhibited in Mexico, Europe, South America and Canada.
Today, Locator Magazine reaches office machine, supply, business equipment, used office machine and equipment dealers, technicians, service vendors and suppliers in the United States and Puerto Rico. International Digital Editions are published in English and Spanish. The Locator can be used as a regular source of where to find new and used office machines, business equipment, parts and supplies, software and services.
Locator Magazine is an award winning publication. In 1995, Asay Media Network was named one of INC 500's fastest growing companies. Asay was given the Excellence in Business Award by the Missouri Small Business Development Centers and the Joplin City Council also named them Industry of the Month.
