Our Journey

How it began...

It’s always been about the American Dream for Larry Zavadil, Founder and CEO. His passion to create opportunities, take chances, make choices and help others inspired him to begin his forms distribution company (American Business Forms) in the basement of his home in Glenwood, Minnesota. From this humble beginning and with his vision, Larry has seen his company grow from a small distributorship into an industry leader.

In 2000, we changed our name to American Solutions for Business and became employee-owned – empowering employees and sales associates to make decisions while securing our path for the future. American has sales associates and support staff throughout the United States, doing business in 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico. American's business concept is simple – we empower and support qualified sales professionals who provide customers with the highest degree of service and satisfaction. 

We believe in relationships – people buy from people and American is committed to the balanced blend of technology, products and people.

Our Mission

Since its foundation, American Solutions for Business has evolved into a leading distributor of print, promotional products, office supplies, eCommerce and marketing solutions. As a customer-driven company, our mission is to provide solutions that streamline business processes, enhance productivity and increase creativity while reducing client costs. As a valued customer, you’ll become part of our family. With over 15,000 suppliers and 900 sales associates and support staff, American is your connection to a solid network of people and possibilities. 

Unique Business Strategy



At American, we believe in proactive, customer-driven business relationships, operating with a single layer of corporate management. This reduces overhead and enables our customers to enjoy greater value per purchasing dollar. Many distributors have levels of approval and management that an associate must work through to service the customer. At American, our Sales Associates are empowered to work directly with our manufacturing partners to develop the best solution for our customers.

American has a full interactive proprietary eCommerce system called ACES. Part of our strength is our flexibility to build a system that meets your specific needs. With developers, graphic designers and website maintenance staff on-site at our home office, American can continuously make timely adjustments to customer’s sites.
