Be Kind to the Planet and Recycle Your Ink Cartridges

Friday, August 19th, 2016

Remember to be conscious of your carbon footprint!

It Isn’t Just Trees You’re Wasting

Think of any time you may have run out of ink right in the middle of that 30-page report. You reach for the drawer to grab your next cartridge and to your dismay – they’re all gone. Don’t cry over spilt ink – grab your wallet and head to the closest distributor. You know this game all too well. This game is expensive, and it isn’t great for our planet. Those cartridges are expensive, wasteful, and harmful to the environment. They contain toxic ingredients such as volatile organic compounds in the form of solvents. Did you know that it takes almost a gallon of gasoline to create each ink cartridge?

When you throw away that report, it isn’t just the trees that you’re wasting. That ink and that ink cartridge contain resin and takes about 500 years to decompose in any wasteland. (more…)

Enoch Office Honors Leukemia Survivors at Hero Palooza

Friday, August 15th, 2014

In a continuation of its commitment to serve the community in many different ways, Enoch Office will be a sponsor of the upcoming There Goes My Hero event, Hero Palooza. The There Goes My Hero Foundation’s mission is to bring hope and the opportunity for healing to Leukemia patients and their families, and this year, Enoch Office participates in honor and recognition of its friend, Jenn Aparicio, wife of WNST’s Nestor Aparicio, who is well on her way to recovery after a bone marrow transplant.

Hero Palooza is an annual event that seeks to raise awareness for There Goes My Hero’s cause and mission. It will be held on Saturday, September 20, at Oregon Ridge Park in Hunt Valley. Patients, survivors, families, friends, and supporters will all be out to participate in the day’s festivities and events, which include a bike tour for cyclists (of varying distances for different levels of experience) and a 5K run or walk. The day’s “main course” is the Family Festival, featuring a Hero Crabfeast and Cookout, Beer Garden (plus wine), and live music. There will be plenty for the entire family to participate in, from games for the children to raffles and prizes for the parents, all to benefit There Goes My Hero and their goal of uniting Leukemia patients with matching donors.

Alongside your own family, the Enoch Office family will be participating with teams for the run and ride to advance this important cause. We were inspired by Jenn’s story and her fearless battle towards recovery and hope to see many more success stories like hers to come. We take our first step towards such a future in our sponsorship of Hero Palooza- come out and join us!

Forest City-New East Baltimore Partnership & Rick’s Networking Group

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

If we had a penny for every time we told you how much Joe Enoch, Rick Donovan, and the rest of the employees at Enoch Office Equipment believe in networking, we may have somewhere near $1,500,000, which is the amount of referrals generated by Rick’s Friday Pikesville Breakfast BNI Platinum Networking Group and its 27 members last year. Pretty impressive for a small networking group, huh? We thought so too.

 

Well, Rick and 15 members of that impressive networking group were recently guests of the Forest City-New East Baltimore Partnership (FC NEBP), a group of national and local real estate developers. Curtis Adams, Development Manager of Forest City, and Adrian Harpool, Principal/Chief Strategist, gave the BNI members a very informative two-hour presentation, outlining the intricacies of its new state-of-the-art technology park and how it will anchor a revitalized community in East Baltimore.

The 88-acre, $1 billion urban redevelopment effort combines new business activity with 1,200 new and renovated housing for mixed-income buyers and renters, including town homes, duplex homes, apartments and senior housing.

 

“With the variety of businesses represented we also learned the way to make sure our businesses could be considered for business,” explained Rick.

The Orioles Win it All!

Friday, June 21st, 2013

No, not those Orioles. We are talking about the Seventh District Orioles, the little league baseball team that just won the championship this past Wednesday, beating the Pretty Boy O’s 6-5.

 

Little League Baseball

 

So why are we telling you about a little league baseball team? Well, guess who plays on that baseball team? None other than Jack Enoch (pictured above), son of Enoch Office Equipment President Joe Enoch, who volunteers his time to help coach his son’s team.

 

Joe Enoch talks to the team

 

As a third generation, locally owned family company, Enoch was built and has thrived because of three things: great products, superior customer service, and family. Needless to say, the Enochs know a thing or two about the importance of family. That is why Joe Enoch takes the time to help coach his son’s little league team. And that is why Jack’s mother, Candace, and two sisters, Emma and Caroline, could be seen and heard at the championship game. The three were extremely vocal in their support of Jack’s team.

The game was close the whole time, but the Seventh District Orioles pulled it out in the end, 6-5, behind a stellar defensive effort that included a double play (the team converted four double plays total and even a triple play on the season)!

 

“Can’t wait till next year,” remarked Jack.

 

Little league can be a very significant experience for a child, providing life lessons and instilling values that can only be learned on the baseball diamond. Below are just a few of these advantages:

 

  1. First and foremost, little league baseball helps a child become a better player, teaching them the fundamentals of the game and helping them improve their skillset.
  2. Secondly is work ethic. Little league helps teach a child the importance of hard work. In order to succeed in the game of baseball, you need to work at it. This includes doing your best at practice as well as working independently. Remember the old adage, practice makes perfect!
  3. Little league helps instill the importance of teamwork in a young child. Baseball is a game dependent on the efforts of each and every player on the field. You win as a team and lose as a team.
  4. Finally, little league baseball helps children for friendships that can last a lifetime!

 

Congrats Seventh District Orioles!

Enoch Office Equipment Proudly Supports The Erika Brannock Fund

Friday, April 19th, 2013

The tragic bombing at the Boston Marathon affected everyone in different ways, causing both physical and emotional harm to the people of Boston, Massachusets, while the rest of the nation sat stunned, trying to find the words to describe such a horrific event.

 

The Boston Marathon Bombing Hits Close to Home


Local Towson preschool teacher, Erika Brannock, 29, attended the Boston Marathon on Monday to support her mother, Carol Downing, who was running. Erika placed herself near the finish line with her sister and brother-in-law, eagerly awaiting her mother. Then the bombs went off…

 

Erika’s sister sustained two broken legs. Erika, meanwhile, suffered serious injuries and even had to have part of her left leg amputated.  WBALTV 11 News has since reported that Erika was awake and speaking on Wednesday, asking to see pictures of her young students in Towson.

 

Meanwhile, Liz Harlan, former director at the Trinity Episcopal Children’s Center where Erika worked, established a trust fund for Brannock.

 

“The fund is set up so the money can be used for any medical recovery cost, living expenses or anything else that is going to aid in her recovery,” said Harlan.

With the Super Bowl just Days away, Baltimore is going Raven Wild!

Friday, February 1st, 2013

With the Super Bowl just days away, the people of Baltimore have been overcome with purple fever. Men, women, and children alike are showing their Ravens’ pride in unique ways. Some people religiously adhere to Purple Friday, wearing their Ravens’ gear to the office. And Enoch Office Equipment is no different.

 

 

Still it is business as usual around Enoch. Rick Donovan could still be seen networking all around Baltimore. After all, at Enoch, “it’s networking morning, noon, and night.” Only this week, there was a purple hue to his networking groups.

 

 

Even the youngsters are ready for Sunday’s Ravens vs. 49ers showdown. Below is a video from one of Enoch’s accounts, the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Students in Sally Bogucki’s class can be seen and definitely heard chanting the Ravens fight song, “Seven Nation Army” by the White Stripes.

 

 

 

Some people even decorated their homes with Ravens’ flags and spray painted their front lawns with the Ravens’ logo, like our own Joe Enoch.

 

 

Some businesses even illuminated their building, covering the exterior in Ravens’ purple. Oh yea, we did that too!

 

 

We guess all that is left to say is…Go Ravens!

Enoch again partnered with WNST & Helping Up Mission this Holiday Season

Friday, December 21st, 2012

Enoch Office Equipment employee Rick Donovan once again partnered with WNST radio personalities Drew Forrester, Glenn Clark and WNST CEO Nestor Aparicio to collect and deliver coats and clothing to Baltimore’s Helping Up Mission, a faith based initiative dedicated to helping not only the homeless of Baltimore, but also those fighting addiction, or individuals struggling to get back on their feet after being released from prison.

 

Throughout this year Enoch Office was a designated ‘drop off” location for the coat and clothing drive.

 

This partnership began in 2010, when Forrester, the host of WNST’s “Morning Reaction,” asked his listeners to bring him coats, coats he planned to handout to the homeless men and women of Baltimore city.

 

“I hoped to get 25 coats,” said Forrester, not expecting to generate a lot of interest.

 

Forrester got more than he had expected – 232 coats to be exact! Forrester then took those coats downtown, in a van donated by Joe Enoch, to an amazing facility called Helping Up Mission and distributed those coats to the needy men and women of Baltimore City.

 

Three years later, Forrester and Enoch are still getting together each and every holiday season to collect and distribute coats to the less fortunate.

 

 

During a holiday season that is marred nowadays by greed and commercialism, it is nice to know that philanthropic events like this still take place. Everyone here at Enoch would like to thank you for your generous donations!

 

“Seeing the gratitude of those receiving these [clothing] items – Is just tremendous,” said Forrester.

 

To learn more about the Helping Up Mission and how your donations have helped them in their efforts, please visit their website at www.helpingupmission.org. And if you have any questions or want to know how to get involved with the Helping Up Mission, please contact Enoch by calling (410) 561-7600 or click here today!

Rick Donovan’s Networking Tips: Networking Morning, Noon, and Night!

Friday, November 30th, 2012

As a third generation, locally owned family company, we at Enoch Office Equipment have learned a thing or two over the years. And as a family business, we pass this way of doing business down from generation to generation. And one of the most important things we have learned, as 2011 sales representative of the year Rick Donovan is about to explain, is that networking, when done right, can be a powerful business tool.

 

Enoch Office Equipment President Joe Enoch, Rick, and the entire Enoch team strongly believe in networking!

 

As Rick once said, at Enoch “it’s networking morning, noon, and night.”

 

Rick Donovan’s Networking Tips

 

  1. Build Trust: Be genuine and authentic, always building trust. Always ask how you can help your fellow networkers. After all, networking is about building relationships. You are there for them, not yourself…
  2. Be Prepared: Preparation is key. Think about the people you might be meeting and check Google and LinkedIn to gather additional background information. Also start thinking about some open ended questions you might use.
  3. Show you Care: Remember your fellow networkers’ names and what they do.
  4. Don’t be all Business: Start a conversation on a light note and try to find common ground. You want the conversation to feel relaxed and casual.
  5. Give Referrals to get Referrals: Be sure to give good referrals and if possible contact the referrals to inform them of person contacting them.
  6. Have a Clear Message: Have a clear message of what your company does and what differentiates you from everybody else.
  7. Your Actions have Consequences: When given referrals quickly follow through. Remember your actions reflect on the person who gave you the referral.

 

There are several reasons that have allowed Enoch able to evolve along with our industry, from the typewriter of the 1960′s and 70′s to the fax of the 1980′s to the digital color output devices and document management systems of today. And one of these reasons is networking!
