• Staples to sell retail and online business in Germany

        • In a statement from Staples Solutions, to its vendors, the company has announced an agreement to sell its retail and online business in Germany to New Office Centre GmbH, a member of the office supplies and equipment company, New Office Centre Beheer B.V Group. 

          Last year, another company of the same group bought Staples’ Dutch retail and online business. Building on that success, the company now believes that this transaction represents the best opportunity to position its retail and online team in Germany for ongoing success. 

          Pieter Wolters, Director Vendor Management & Procurement Staples Solutions added, “it will enable us to increase our focus on growing our B2B contracts business as our core business. With this said, we will continue our contract business operations in Germany and remain committed to our purpose: help customers accomplish more in the ever-changing workspaces of today and tomorrow. 

          “We anticipate the transaction to close sometime in the weeks to come. Until then, we will work with the new owners to ensure a seamless transition – and we are fully dedicated to continuing to meet your business needs throughout this process.”
