Feliciano Juarez, Jr.
Feliciano Juarez (was born on May 19, 1958 at Tacurong, Sultan Kudarat) is the President and founder of Copylandia Office Systems Corporation, the leading provider of advanced copying and printing solutions in the Philippines.
Feliciano is the second of the family with 5 children. He has an elder brother and three younger sisters. His father is an engineer and his mother is a businesswoman (runs a grocery in Davao).
Nonoy, as he is fondly called, was primarily unsure of what course to take in college. He enrolled at the University of the Philippines, Diliman, College of Engineering so as to follow his father's footsteps. However, he stopped and cross-enrolled at the University of the Philippines, Baguio. There he met his wife, Bernadette. When Bernadette enrolled at the University of the Philippines, College of Law, Diliman, Nonoy followed suit and enrolled there.
Birth of Copylandia
It started out with the scarcity of photocopiers at the university which was really a necessity since there were only limited books available at the college library. He passed a proposal to supply the photocopying services of the new library and was approved. From one machine, he has now copy centers to other schools and provinces like Davao, Cebu, and Iloilo. They eventually ventured into printshop business in Makati's Central Business District. This business led to their eventual distribution of office machine systems. Since 1993, he established Copylandia Office Systems Corporation which distributes Risograph duplicating machines, Develop multifunction copiers, Konica Minolta laser printers, KIP wide format printers and other products like Eba paper cutters, Horizon bindery solutions, HSM shredders and baling presses, and Evolis card printers.
Now, Coplylandia's machines can be seen in every print shop. It has over 40 printshops nationwide and growing.
