We’ve been based in
Stockport since 1976
We’re a 3rd generation
4 warehouses based
all over the UK
26 vans delivering nationwide.
For the past 60 years we’ve been supplying workplace, interiors and print solutions for businesses and schools, and since our birth in 1957, we’ve become the no. 1 choice for 15,000 clients in the North West, Yorkshire, Isle of Man and many more across the UK who work with us for our combination of industry expertise, flexibility, buying power and the passion to deliver practical solutions and market-leading innovations.
The secret to our success? We continue to be driven by the values passed down through three generations of the Reid family, meaning integrity and a passion for people and service is central to the way we do business. Since moving to Stockport in 1976, we’ve expanded, developed, and now command a national supply chain stretching from Bradford to the Isle of Man.
We started out as a letterpress printers and diestampers and office supplies business based in Manchester, before moving to Stockport (and we haven’t budged since)
10 acquisitions down the line, we’ve grown from a small family-run business to a national provider, with a fleet of 26 vans and 4 warehouses in Stockport, Bradford and the Isle of Man.
We’re passionate about our local community in Stockport and Manchester. We work with a local charity, Seashell Trust in Cheshire, to provide work experience for young people with learning disabilities.
We believe in foremost in people and service, and that we’re stronger together. Our longest serving colleague has been with us since 1987, and our team has 80+ members.
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.
