Dealer groups form international alliance
| 20 February, 2018
Five of the world’s leading and most progressive Office Supplies Dealer groups have announced the formation of an international alliance for the purpose of sharing the vast knowledge, experience and intellect of globally recognised companies and executives within the Office Products market.
Office Choice (Australia), TriMega Purchasing Association (USA), Novexco (Canada), Office Friendly (United Kingdom) and Inovocom (South Africa) will join together under the IOPA banner (International Office Products Alliance) to drive collaboration amongst the management teams of each company in the areas of Private Label, Best practice sharing, Corporate & Dealer benchmarking and Business model enhancement.
Pioneered by Office Choice CEO Brad O’Brien, this alliance has been born as a direct result of the desire for increased collaboration by each company to build and enhance the support and services provided for the benefit of the members of each dealer group. The alliance will see a yearly schedule of online meetings and international conferences to bring the companies together. The 1st meeting will be held in June 2018 in conjunction with the OPI European Forum in the UK, where the roadmap for the next 2 years will be determined.
