 Telmar's first office was at Sky Park Circle in Irvine.  Chris (sales VP), Sue (sales) and Granville (warehouse and everything else) worked at that location.  Though we had little money, we made an offer to buy all of BellSouth's surplus plug-in material.  We were a bit shocked when we won the bid!   We quickly needed to add more warehouse space.  So we leased next door, then next door to that.  By the way, 'Telmar' was a name that I thought our customers would think they had already heard of.   We would always call new telephone company customers as if they already knew us!   We also had a proud tag line:  'An American Telesis Company' - American Telesis was Telmar's first corporate name.  We had to ditch that when Pacific Bell's attorneys wrote to say that 'Telesis' was their word, so please stop using it!

As well as programmer and part-time company president, I was the full-time warehouse guy and shipper!
