Staples Advantage

Staples has been making it easy for businesses for nearly 30 years with thousands of associates worldwide. Headquartered outside of Boston, Staples operates throughout North and South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

In 1985, when our founder Tom Stemberg wasn’t able to find a replacement printer ribbon on a holiday weekend, he came up with a way to make office supplies more accessible — and affordable. Now, Staples is about much more than paper clips and pens. And to realize our vision of becoming the world’s most trusted source for office solutions, we’ve put our trust in our associates – that’s what we call the dedicated people at the very heart of Staples.

We operate in three distinct areas: Business-to-Business, Retail andeCommerce. To keep these areas running smoothly, we have associates in corporate offices and in the field around the world.
