Office supplies firms to merge

By Paperstone on January 3, 2008 in Office Supplies

The upcoming merger of two office supplies companies could create one of the biggest office products businesses in the north of England, it has emerged.

Central Stationers, an office supplies business based in Darlington, will join Wallis Business Services, headquartered in York, the Northern Echo reports.

The two office products companies together will have total sales worth £6.5 million per year, but executives have said that they would like to increase that figure to £10 million over the next five years.

Peter Wallis, managing director of the newly-merged business, told the publication that loyal office supplies customers should not notice many differences following the deal.

"The only change will be in the increasing services offered and the ability of the group as a whole to deliver products free of charge to anywhere in the north of England."

Central Stationers, which also provides office furniture and printer supplies, has had a presence in Darlington for a quarter-century and employs more than a dozen people.

And Wallis Business Services has been operating for 43 years, providing office products to Yorkshire customers.
