Acorn Business Supplies Ltd was established by managing director, John Harrison, in 1983. From humble beginnings the team at Acorn has grown considerably. The workforce has increased from five to fifty one staff and from one delivery van to a fleet of fifteen. The warehouse has been expanded and new office space was acquired in 1995 to accommodate the steady growth of the company.
In 2006 Acorn acquired Index Office Supplies adding a new distribution centre in Stevenage and establishing a greater presence in North London and the Northern Home Counties.
The continuing expansion of Acorn’s client list is testament to the quality of service its staff has maintained over the years. With a stockholding in excess of a quarter of a million pounds and excellent supplier relationships, Acorn look forward to serving new and existing clients with a confident and helpful approach.
Acorn Business Supplies continues to grow through managed expansion of organic sales coupled with strategic acquisitions. During 2007 and 2008 Acorn acquired Alba Office Products Ltd, Knight Office Supplies Ltd, TCC, TCC Direct, Headland Office Supplies and G&C Ltd.
