OfficeMax offers more for business with strategic acquisition

Wellington-based Waiwhetu Distributors Ltd has been owned by Savage Group Ltd for the past ten years.

New Zealand Managing Director, Kevin Obern, said the company’s inclusion into the OfficeMax fold made perfect business sense and would offer a real benefit to customers.

“OfficeMax acquiring Waiwhetu Distributors Ltd is a natural fit, because cleaning and hygiene products are already a substantial part of our rapidly evolving business, in a market that we have been focussed on growing,” he said.

“They have a significant number of customers in the corporate, education and hospitality markets, and a long history in providing great service to customers.

“We are excited to be able to purchase an established and well-known player.”

This is the latest development in the evolution of OfficeMax, which has already established itself as a major supplier of cleaning and hygiene products, furniture, safety goods, packaging and café supplies to many New Zealand businesses.

The combined business will be in a strong position to provide customers with improved distribution, client support and access to new product ranges in an increasingly competitive market.

The company has a strong base in Wellington, where its head office is located, and will continue to provide exemplary cleaning and hygiene services to customers under its new owners. “It’s business as usual for both companies, and we’re looking forward to providing great continued service nationally,” Mr Obern said. The acquisition will be effective from February 1, 2018.
