Madill was founded as Island Copy Centre in 1985 by Bob Lloyd. Bob had experience in the duplication business and had worked for Xerox Canada. He was very familiar with their products and felt there was a market for the services these machines provided. He opened his doors at that time and as the business grew he added a few office supplies to his store. In 1991, he continued to increase the inventory he was carrying and began selling product by delivery to a few commercial customers. In 1997, Ehren Madill started working with Bob (his stepfather) and the company moved toward servicing more commercial customers and focused on building this part of the business. In 2001, Ehren purchased the business outright from Bob and changed the name of the business to Madill – The Office Company. The company then started servicing as far north as Qualicum Beach, BC and as far South as Duncan, BC. The company continues to grow now servicing Victoria and the Lower Mainland.
