In 1960, the business was incorporated as Goforth & Marti Office Supply, Inc. and in 1987, was purchased by William F. Easley. In 1989, Stephen Easley joined the firm as President and the Contract Interiors division was re-named G|M Business Interiors, a division of Goforth & Marti, also becoming a Herman Miller dealership.
