Advance Office Products Depot has grown significantly in the three decades it has been in Ōrewa, but the next step in its history is perhaps its biggest yet.
The family owned company, which has been based in Tamariki Ave for 35 years, moves to Forge Road, Silverdale, next month.
Anna Davis and husband Campbell bought the company 15 years ago and in that time have expanded to the point where they can provide everyone, from walk-in customers to the largest corporates, with anything they need – including supplies for office kitchens and bathrooms, furniture, printer ink and more. Their catalogue contains more than 6000 products, with hygiene and health and safety supplies a particular focus during the pandemic.
Anna says the key has been to provide excellent service, whether it’s someone coming in for copy paper, or large contracts with companies like Acciona Fletchers for the NX2 motorway project.
“Campbell and I were in the service industry for more than 20 years before we took over Advance Office Products,” Anna says. “As we’ve grown, everyone has benefited from our bigger buying power.”
Although the team, which includes son Hunter, is looking forward to larger premises in Silverdale, they are all sad to be leaving Ōrewa.
“We will be able to display more office furniture and printers, and provide better social distancing,” Anna says. “You will still be able to walk-in and everyone is welcome to visit as they have previously done in Ōrewa. We are looking forward to everyone coming to see us.”
