A Rich History
Office Central was founded in 1978 as a start-up company running out of a townhouse basement. The company started out selling rubber stamps to businesses in the Toronto, Ontario area. The stamps were sourced from a local manufacturer in Toronto. Within a short period of time, customers started asking for additional office-related items such as office supplies. Mini Stamps and Office Supplies Inc. (the entity at that time) had now grown out of its space in the townhouse and purchased a mid-sized home in order to have a larger basement to facilitate the small stock of commonly used office supply items. Eventually, Mini Stamps acquired a small warehouse in the Markham, Ontario area to better service the 2000+ commercial accounts it had acquired in the Greater Toronto Area.
We now operate out of our main 50,000 square foot facility in Markham, Ontario with multiple hubs across Ontario and Canada. We have grown our business based on our reputation for supplying great products and the best price, and on the relationships we build with our clients. Office Central has also acquired eight companies over the last few years, driving our growth in the Ontario market, and we employ over 80 individuals.
Since our inception, Office Central is guided by these five core values:
- We succeed through satisfied customers.
- We value and empower employees.
- We deliver quality and excellence in all we do.
- We use technology to deliver market leadership.
- We behave responsibly as a corporate citizen.
We are dedicated to innovation, service, and giving our customers the freedom to focus on what matters most: Your real business.
