UK’s oldest dealer group Nemo reaches 35th anniversary

Nemo Office Club (originally Nemo Group) is celebrating passing the 35th anniversary of its formation as the brainchild of four Brother business machine dealers who believed that by clubbing together their purchases of office supplies, they could strike a better deal with suppliers.

Founder member, Trevor Peak of Custom Business Equipment said, “at the time we were focused on our buying power; if we consolidated our purchases that would make us favourable with suppliers. It was a simple concept, and it worked. I don’t think any of us at the time could envisage how the group would evolve over the next thirty-five years.”

Michael Morgan, Group Chairman said, “We are unique in that Nemo was founded on four ‘core pillars’ – run by the members, for the benefit of the members, a strong veto process, and the motto ‘Together We’re Stronger’ – these four principles are still the guiding ethos that focuses everything we do on growing our members’ businesses.”

Tim Beaumont, MD added, “more than ever dealers are looking to us for support and the reassurance that comes with being a part of a group. Our role is to deliver whatever it takes to help them grow sales and increase profitability.

“We acquired Office Club in 2019 because we could see the need for greater collaboration among independent resellers as the industry continues to diversify into new markets, and with that the need to develop more supportive and versatile strategies.

“Who would have believed when the group formed all those years ago that our latest marketing activity would include electric charge point installations, bicycle shelters, and pest control products? Whatever it takes, our plan remains to grow our membership by offering the best programmes in the market and to tackle head-on the challenges of the next thirty-five years.”
