Staples Solutions will continue under the name of Staples in the Benelux. Recently, Standard Investment already announced the acquisition of industry peer Office Centre (Office Centre sold to Standard Investment).
“Office Centre is a long-standing partner of our company – which means that Staples and Office Centre will further expand their partnership after the acquisition by Standard,” said George Steur, Managing Director of Staples Benelux. “Within the business market, both companies offer a complementary proposition to their customers, from home workers to the largest companies in the Benelux and Germany. By bringing these companies under the same roof, a situation of optimal cooperation is created that also benefits retail customers and our wholesale partners.”
The CEO of Office Centre, Marc-Derek Schönberger, added: “The new combination will enable us to focus on growth in sales and results.”
“Staples Benelux is a company that has been on our radar for some time and we are looking forward to welcoming George and his team to our portfolio to further expand our leading position in the Benelux and Germany, together with Office Centre, which we acquired in June. The office products market is in a state of flux due to changing consumption patterns, such as increased working from home, and Staples Benelux is in an excellent position to respond to these changes in the coming years,” said Hendrik Jan ten Have, Partner at Standard Investment.
“In addition to realising the synergies between the two companies, our capital injection will also enable the group to grow faster.”
