History of ACTS Inc.

ACTS Inc., was originally started in May of 1971 by Donald Miessner as an office repair center specializing in repair of calculators and typewriters, under the name of Alaska Computer & Typewriter Service. In 1976, due to health reasons, Donald turned the business over to his son, Steve Meissner. At that time Steve turned it into more of a Typewriter Sales & Service business.

In 1979, Alaska Computer & Typewriter Service moved from 4504 Spenard Road to 1507 West 32nd Avenue, a small house turned into shop and office, and sent their first technician to IBM for training on IBM compatible computers. In 1980 Alaska Computer & Typewriter Service sold its first IBM PC, an XT with 512k memory, 10 meg. hard drive, 5.25 floppy and monochrome 12" display running Microsoft DOS 2.0.

We are sell and service PCs along with printers, networks and an assortment of other services listed here on this site.

Since our first certification in 1979, we have added many more certifications.

We have always put service as our number one priority, which has led to our long history in Alaska as one of the oldest service centers in business today, and one of the most trusted names in customer satisfaction.
