Office supplier generates jobs

Buy Queensland means a lot to us we as a business have got the opportunity now to compete with a lot of larger organisations, multinationals and large national companies.
We’ve been included on the SOA for office supplies and we’ve been able to get some good traction: we’ve got Queensland Police, Queensland Health, Fire and Emergency Services, and a whole lot more DOE’s, schools.
We’ve brought on three more fulltime equivalents into our business across the three locations we have in Queensland.
New job opportunities at Queensland’s largest independent business-to-business office supplier show the big impact the Buy Queensland procurement approach can have on Queensland businesses.
Impact Office Supplies created three new full-time equivalent roles, thanks to an increase in business as a result of being accepted as a supplier to the Queensland Government.
Group Sales Manager Paul Tonks said Buy Queensland had given Impact Office Supplies the chance to compete against national and multinational companies.
“Buy Queensland means a lot for us,” he said.
“It has given us the opportunity to compete with a lot of larger organisations, multi-nationals and large national companies, so the investment in this initiative is very meaningful for us.”
Paul said their business supplies to several Queensland Government departments, including Police, Health, TAFE and Fire and Emergency Services.
“The benefit of having a contract with the Queensland Government is enormous and we now feel we are ‘in the tent’ to do business, where previously we were outside,” he said.
Established 16 years ago with only a handful of employees, the 100 per cent Queensland-owned business employs 73 Queenslanders and has offices and warehouses in Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast.
Impact Office Supplies won the Putting Queenslanders First Award 2019, City Category along with a Highly Commended Award in the Medium or Large Business Category at the 2019 Buy Queensland Supplier Awards.
