“The show was fantastic! We had an amazing response with the launch of our 3D Fusion letter printer, and swissQprint Karibu roll to roll at 200 square meters an hour – both a game changer – as well as R50 million worth of sales. Printing with our UV P ink, which was also showcased, has revolutionised printing on uncoated textiles, vinyl, PVC, paper, ABS, Correx, Dibond and much more,” said Adrian Wolman, Sign-Tronic.

Niki Long from Graphix Supply World said, “It was a great show for us with loads of enquires and over R20 million in sales. The expo definitely exceeded our expectations.”

With rapid development being the norm, the school and office supplies sector is today growing into one of Africa’s most high in demand, requiring a steady flow of materials into its ever-evolving educational and enterprise landscape.

The School & Office Expo will see South Africa make a significant impact in defining the business dynamics of Africa’s expanding stationery market. Four companies from the country will set in motion the process of breaking the monopoly of Dubai-based traders and seizing a significant chunk of the African market share with a range of colourful and aesthetically designed stationery products.

The companies, namely Bantex, Freedom Stationery, Accent Manufacturing and Empire Toys & Stationery will lend vibgyor from their rainbow nation, making the event more a festival of stationery to celebrate a proud continent’s ascent into a self-reliant future.

Bantex
Johannesburg-based Bantex is a market-driven stationery manufacturing and distribution company that supplies South Africa and Africa an extensive range of educational and home stationery items. It lends to the African market its parent Bantex A/S Denmark’s trademark for top-of-the-line quality products. Perfection is the norm, nothing less. Bantex uses advanced manufacturing technologies and environment-friendly materials to create products that are a combination of utility and aesthetics.

Freedom Stationery
Freedom stationery, true to its name, is about empowerment of the youth through affordable Scholastic books. Based in Isithebe, KwaZulu-Natal, the three-decade old company has evolved from an aspiring competitor to an iconic torchbearer for a Nation raring to take its rightful place amongst the world’s leading economies. No wonder its slogan “Education for the Nation” rings a bell through its track record of providing over 100 million books every year from its five full-fledged branches in Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town, Bloemfontein and East London.

Accent Manufacturing
This almost two-decade old reputed manufacturer, based 50 kms south of Durban, has been consistently producing high-quality adhesive putty for a rapidly evolving world market. Accent’s current position as South Africa’s leading player in the field stands testimony to its competitive spirit and passion for innovation in successfully addressing the needs of a demanding customer base.

Empire Toys and Stationery Co (Pty) Ltd
The Butterfly brand, true to its name, is about brightening your world by surrounding yourself with vibrant and colourful stationery. Whether it is colouring books, reading books, pencil bags, school bags, drinking bottle, luggage, office stationery and even toys, Butterfly has something interesting for every target age group. Add to it, Disney-themed products – a delight for every child the world over.

Come May 18th , the colourful and quality-centric visual treat from all four lion-hearted South African companies will be on display for all to see at the first-of-its-kind School & Office Expo in Nairobi.
