Staples becomes Lyreco
On March 19, 2021 we communicated our intention to acquire Staples Solutions’ overall operations in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Austria and Poland, as well as Staples Solutions’ Central Shared Services (IT, eCommerce, Customer Experience, Merchandising, Supply Chain Planning and Finance) primarily located in Poland and The Netherlands.
As of January 3, 2022, part of the business of Pressel Versand International GmbH became Lyreco CE, SE.
This acquisition brings together two dynamic businesses and strengthens our combined industry-leading expertise across office supplies, print solutions, personal protective equipment, hygiene, coffee, and catering. Today’s agreement will also enable nearly 1,600 employees across various functions to join the Lyreco teams.
Staples customers will be accompanied by our sales representatives during the whole integration into Lyreco's customer network. Staples e-shop will be closed as of May, however Lyreco e-shop is already available to all registered customers.
The integration will have been completed by June 30, 2022.
This is a great day for all parties involved. Both organizations share the same values and the same passion to delight our customers. Together, we will be stronger to deliver excellence in customer experience across Central and Nordic European markets.
We are excited to welcome the many talented employees from Staples Solutions to Lyreco and look forward to combining our passion for delivering excellence.
