Our History We're 68 years young. Still growing and reinventing
In more than 68 years of business – we’ve changed. From humble beginnings as a regional stationery supplier, we’ve grown and diversified for one reason, servicing kiwi businesses like yours.
Over the years, the relationships we’ve had with customers like you and our commitment to supply their business essentials has seen us increase our expertise, through the acquisition and integration of specialist companies. These companies gave us the know-how in Safety, Facility Solutions, Print and Promotional Marketing services, Technology and Furniture and Office Fit-outs.
We’re so much more than a stationery supplier. We’re NXP, we’re taking care of business.
