we’re proudly based
over 60 years of
in our team
That’s when Jack Reid and Jim Egan started Egan Reid Stationery Co Ltd, a letterpress printers and diestampers and office supplies business based in Manchester.
That’s the number of generations from the Reid family who have now worked in the business. Martin Reid entered the business in 1978 followed by brother Andrew two years later. Martin’s son Charlie joined the company in 2012 after graduating from university.
The date of Egan Reid’s move to our current premises on one of the largest business parks in Stockport after expansion in the 1970s and 1980s. In 2013, we acquired a neighbouring unit to house our furniture stock.
The average number of reams of Egan Reid branded A4 paper sold annually. If you stacked them all, that would be over 11 miles – or twice the height of Mount Everest!

Our aim is simple; we want to make procurement work for you. We spend the time needed to understand our clients’ needs, all in a view to making procurement easier, more cost-effective, more efficient and less stressful. Our goal is to offer real solutions that make a real difference to your working life.
We employ local people, use local businesses and take an active part in our community. We take great pride in where we come from and never forget our roots. Whilst we all want value from our office supplies, we also realise the need to make more sustainable choices. We offer a broad range of either environmentally friendly, durable, locally produced or ethical products.
As a local family run business, we understand the importance of people and long lasting relationships. We take pride in our personal and friendly approach. We understand the trials and tribulations of running a successful business as we face them too. We care about our customers and we listen to your needs. We see ourselves as a partner rather than just another supplier.

One supplier, one delivery, one payment. It’s easy to see why so many of clients choose the single source option. Why use multiple suppliers when we can provide all you could possibly need.
