• BPGI turns 20 this year

        • BPGI is celebrating 20 years in business this year, having established in 1998, to enhance the purchasing power of independent dealer members and their respective buying groups, under an international umbrella. 

          The international purchasing consortium, owned by its members who form its Board of Directors, has members spanning Europe and Australia, bringing together buying power and expertise in supporting the independent dealer.

          Over the last 2 decades BPGI and its member groups have partnered with many of office products manufacturers in the industry, delivering sales growth and brand penetration throughout the markets where its members are present. BPGI continues to develop close ties with its preferred supplier partners and to explore new ways to deliver continued opportunities for growth.

          Barrie Hayes, BPGI’s CEO said, “whilst the organisation has gone thorough many changes particularly more recently, we are pleased that its members still see real value in the organisation and a great example of that was the re-joining of Quantore in 2017 after a short spell away. In 2017 we have seen some substantial growth with some of our key vendors, which clearly demonstrates that the independent market is still in good shape, even with its challenges.”

          BPGI will celebrate its anniversary at its April Board of Managers meeting in Malaga, when it will announce its 2017 vendor of the year but also an overall vendor of the last 10 years, following on from the previous vendor of the decade, which was Acco.

          BPGI will continue to mark its 20th Anniversary throughout 2018 with a series of member events and is looking forward to an exciting year.
