Fuji Xerox & New Zealand Office Supplies strike exclusive deal

16 Jul 18

Fuji Xerox and New Zealand Office Supplies have signed an exclusive deal that will provide exclusive sale rights to a range of office supplies – specifically Fuji Xerox branded papers.

The two companies say the agreement will deepen their existing strategic partnership and it will offer Fuji Xerox customers more access to a wider range of products.

New Zealand Office Supplies (NZOS) now has exclusive rights for the sale of Fuji Xerox papers, including wide format and specialty papers.

“The new partnership will give customers access to the best local office supplies offering in the New Zealand market coupled with excellent service levels,” comments Fuji Xerox New Zealand managing director, Peter Thomas.

“It will strengthen the range of office products available and will provide all our customers with a fresh ecommerce experience.

“We look forward to deepening our relationship with NZOS and working with them to provide significant incremental value to our respective customers. The focus for the next three months will be on integrating the two supplies businesses into NZOS and ensuring a seamless transition for our customers.”

New Zealand Office Supplies is described as a locally-owned and locally-managed office supplies business. Fuji Xerox says NZOS is well positioned to deliver customers an enhanced office supplies offering and tailored service levels.

“The focus for the next three months will be on integrating the two supplies businesses into NZOS and ensuring a seamless transition for all existing supplies customers. Over the coming weeks customers will transition from Fuji Xerox to NZOS. We will communicate the details of what this means, including any system or process changes that might be required, in due course,” a statement from Fuji Xerox adds.

New Zealand Office Supplies managing director Mike Manikas says the company looks forward to building on its existing partnership with Fuji Xerox.

“NZOS is passionate about the world of business supplies and providing customers with genuine choice, competitive pricing and an enjoyable customer experience.

“I am excited at the prospect of helping to bring together the respective skills and talents of the Fuji Xerox Supplies Division and NZOS to build a differentiated model alongside Fuji Xerox New Zealand. The partnership with Fuji Xerox provides customers with certainty and continuity at a time when our industry is subject to many changes," Manikas concludes.
