Development of Office Depot Europe marked with Strategic Alliance Between Office Depot France and Office Depot UK & Ireland
London, 10th January 2024 – Today Office Depot UK & Ireland announced its strategic alliance with Office Depot France.
Over the past 18 months, OT Group has made great strides to develop our ESG practices – and like many businesses in recent years we’ve started to see the benefits of investing both time and resources in holding ourselves accountable when it comes to the Environment, Society and Governance. To continue with our development, we’re seeking a Sustainability Operations Manager to work with us at our Head Office in Ashton, Manchester, to operationalise our ESG commitment.
In today’s rapidly evolving business landscape, sustainability and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors have become vital for companies aiming to thrive in a changing world. At OT Group, we understand the significance of integrating sustainability into our core business values and the positive impact it can have on our planet and society. Group Sales Director, Stuart Derbyshire shares some of the highlights from OT Group’s recent Customer and Supplier day, on this subject.
OT Group, a leading provider of office supplies and services, have become the first in their sector to receive a prestigious Investor in Sales award in recognition of their commitment to developing strong customer relationships based on integrity, trust, and ethical selling.
It feels like the world has woken up to a need to be greener, but collaboration will be key to achieving the UK’s decarbonisation targets, believes OT Group’s Procurement Director, Scott Walker…
Following the acquisition announcement in June 2021, parts of the UK and Ireland contract arm of Office Depot have now been fully integrated into business supplies and services provider, OT Group — part of the wider Paragon Group of companies.
It’s no surprise that the pandemic has hit business budgets hard, and spiralling costs are particularly prevalent in the procurement and purchasing sector thanks to the move to remote working. Spend visibility is at its lowest and finance teams are looking for any ways to increase it.
Covid has been the architect of much change, and it has most definitely altered the face of procurement forever. The past year has been the toughest in living memory for the sector, but as the UK Government’s roadmap to recovery continues to roll out, we can now look to the future with optimism.
Workplace solutions and business services provider OT Group Limited has today agreed to acquire Office Depot Europe’s larger mid-market, major and public sector contract customers in the UK and Ireland. This is subject to a TUPE consultation process with the Office Depot employees which will commence immediately.
