It isn't often that a person has the opportunity to apprentice in his or her career of choice through family operations, but that's exactly what Rick LaTorre was able to do alongside his father and brother, Ben LaTorre Sr. and Ben Jr.

In the mid 1970's Ben Sr. and his wife Ellie purchased a mom and pop typewriter shop and opened the doors to Post Road Office Equipment, which they transformed into a copier company now known as ABM Business Systems. ABM is Connecticut's oldest independent document solutions provider at 65 years young, customers include local, state, non profit, small to medium business and federal government entities. They've been an authorized dealer for Sharp's award winning copiers and printers for the last 25 years. The company offers purchase, lease and rental of copiers, printers and multifunction products, as well as customized scanning solutions. Many of their customers have been with them for up to thirty years, and have come to depend on the same day service and support ABM offers their customers, a feature Rick believes is key to their success and customer satisfaction. "Our team of service techs and administrators are like family, and most have been with us for over 20 years" says Rick. "We bring that teamwork and family mentality to the job and that's what brings our customers back time and again".

Lianne and Rick LaTorre moved to Killingworth in 2015 and have fallen in love with the community. Daughters Bella and Livi are involved with youth sports including swimming, softball, Girl Scouts and after school activities. In his spare time, Rick and his family enjoy hiking with their lab, Cooper, biking, fishing, skiing, golf and just about any outdoor activity. The LaTorres are also avid wine makers and continue to use Rick's great grandfather's press.

"We love visiting the local farmers markets and various events at Parmelee farm. These events are what make Killingworth such a welcoming community. It's that community vibe that brought us here through my wife's persistence. As usual, she was right", says Rick.

We welcome the LaTorre family as new members of both the Killingworth community and Chamber of Commerce. Rick has already immersed himself in volunteerism including various school functions, coaching softball and helping with The Madison Jaycees fund raising events.
