"More than two decades of excellence"


     Welcome to the Presentation Solutions Web Site! Our goal is to help you deliver outstanding presentations, which reflect positively on your organization and on you personally! On this site, you will see outstanding presentation products from the best manufacturers in the industry, and you will probably learn about a few remarkable new presentation products that you never knew existed!

     We at Presentation Solutions are very proud of this site, but we are much more proud of what is really the heart and soul of our company - our people. In this world of impersonal and automated transactions, we believe that people still want to deal with people - real, live people who take pride in their company, their products, and in helping customers get the right solutions for their needs. While in today's "new economy" these ideals may seem a bit old-fashioned, a quick visit to our "awards" section of this site will show that many of you out there agree! So in summary, use this site for what it is intended to be - a wonderful informational resource. But before you make any purchasing decisions, call or e-mail us, tell us your needs, and let us put our personal, human expertise to work for you!


     Presentation Solutions was founded in 1990 by then-23 year old entrepreneur Joe C. Powell and his mother, Carol. We started out with two desks and one telephone in a corner of the basement of Carol's house, and used the laundry room and one-car garage as warehouse space! The company carried only one product line back then, a large-format Poster Printer from Varitronics (which is still one of our best-sellers today!). As we grew in both number of employees and product lines carried, we quickly outgrew "the basement", and in 1995 built and moved into Presentation Solutions' current Corporate Headquarters (right), located in "downtown" Buckner, Kentucky.
Today, the company has 20 employees, four product divisions, and branch territories in Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky; Cincinnati, Ohio; and Nashville, Tennessee.

     Presentation Solutions has succeeded because we really do care about our customers. We feel that happy customers turn into repeat customers, and that is what we want. We also realize that in order to have repeat customers, we need to keep you happy! Although this seems like common sense, it is astounding how many companies really don't care about anything other than making an immediate sale. Our people will help you determine what you really need, give you a fair price, and then train you on how to use the equipment after you buy it! In addition, if you should ever have a problem, we make your problem into our problem, and we will do everything we can to solve it expeditiously and to your satisfaction. This philosophy not only helps us win new customers, it also helps us turn those new customers into long-term repeat customers!

Product Divisions
     Presentation Solutions has four separate divisions, each concentrating on a particular product and / or market. This allows our people in each division to become an expert on that product and market, which is exactly the type of person that we would want to deal with if we needed something! Additionally, by focusing our product offerings on only the top manufacturers in each industry, we have become one of the top dealers in the country for each of the manufacturers whom we represent!
Our four divisions consist of the following: LCD MultiMedia Projectors; Varitronics Poster Printers (a line of push-button, large format printers); Industrial Labeling and Signage Systems from Brady Signmark; and our newest division, Presentation Services, where we create PowerPoint Presentations for customers and / or teach them to create their own presentations!


     We at Presentation Solutions know that we do everything we can to take care of our customers, so it's really nice when outside agencies reaffirm that there really is "something special" about our company! We show these awards to you here so that you may see the caliber of the organization with which you are dealing. After all, with the great dot-com fallout that is taking place, it is important to know that Presentation Solutions is a company you can trust. That is why, of all the awards we have received, we consider being named one of only eight National Finalists for the Better Business Bureau's Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics as the greatest honor that we could receive!
So please peruse these honors, and then take a tour of our website! If you see something that looks interesting, give us a call or drop us an e-mail. We look forward to serving you! Enjoy!
