Spotlight on BOSS

We talked to George Bellas, owner of BOSS.

What we do

We provide our customers with an unrivalled office supplies service, from furniture to printed workwear, bespoke stamps and labels to catering and janitorial supplies.

Why we do what we do (and how we got here)

Having experienced the sourcing and service rigidity in the larger firms and, at the other end of the scale, the technological and margin barriers in smaller ones, we took the best bits of both worlds to create a business where we can offer our customers keen pricing, unlimited range and an advanced web ordering service.

Our greatest success (and proof that a little tenacity goes a long way!)

We recently won a tender to supply a large manufacturing firm. We had called them every year for the last 4 years, but they had not reviewed their supplier in that period. This year, they were finally reviewing their supplier and, recognising our high service levels and sourcing capabilities, they chose us. The buyer even apologised for how long it took them to come round as they realised the huge amount of money they would have saved had they come to us sooner!

Something that people may not know about our profession...

There are over 4,000 office products dealers in the UK but only 2 major wholesalers.

The most important lesson we've learnt while building our business is...

Every customer is equally important, and a happy customer is the best advocate for your business.
