About Us

About FTG Texas (FTG-TX)

Our Story

Originally founded in 1978 as Marimon Business Systems, we have provided comprehensive business solutions and award-winning technology services to Houston for over 4 decades. After joining the Flex Technology Group (FTG) family of companies in 2017, we have since expanded our company to the Houston, Dallas, Texarkana, and El Dorado marketplaces where we continue to establish ourselves as an industry innovator focused on amazing customer service.

Our relationship with Flex Technology Group has been a game-changing combination for the Marimon team and has allowed us to offer our customers, partners, and employees the benefits of a larger organization and expanded scope of solutions and services. Thus, in efforts to more closely align our business and identity with FTG, we have since changed our name to FTG Texas (FTG-TX), effective July 1, 2020.

As FTG-TX transitions to this next phase of growth, there will only be one result: seamless, quality service. Our goal remains the same, which is to bring the best partners in the industry to you. Partners like Canon, Lexmark, and HP to bring you state-of-the-art technology and best-in-class products to deliver a customized solution to fit your specific business needs. Customers, vendors, and partners will find no change in the quality of products and services offered or in conducting business with the company’s new identity.
