Right Price, Right Product: We know the bottom line is always important. But often it is a case of not only ensuring you get a great price, but more importantly the right price on the right product. Our clients save more by buying the right item than by simply getting a little extra discount on the wrong item. Our prices are extremely competitive – on average in the past 12 months we've saved new clients 18% against their previous supplier!

Workplace Supplies: Our product range goes far beyond just traditional paper, ink, toner and stationery and includes a broad selection of health & safety, catering and hygiene items to support office, warehouse, mobile and homeworkers alike.

Keep control, your way: We tailor our services to match your specifications exactly whether you need online ordering through our website, via punch-out from your e-procurement system, complete budgetary control or complex reporting. Getting this right from the start is vital but constant development and appraisal is essential in delivering long-term ‘best value’.

Beyond the Catalogue: Every day our clients challenge us to find something weird, wonderful or unusual. We love a challenge so whether it’s bespoke or off the shelf, with a database of over 135,000 items and over 400 suppliers on file we’ll make every effort to match your requirements.

Expert Help and Advice: Every client is assigned an ‘Expert’ to act as their single-point of contact. With 86% of clients rating our service as “excellent” or “consistently good” we know they are the vital link between the clever technology stuff our website offers and personal service that makes us “always friendly” and “full of helpful information”.




Our growing high-street branch network serves around 1 million customers a year and also provides a full Business Services Hub (internet access, printing, binding, laminating, faxing, copying, scanning, photo printing and every other service a small business needs to GET WORK DONE.)
