Lets quit and start something better..
We’d (Jonny & Gra) met in 2007 whilst working for a large corporate office supplies company. Talk about setting up a business together and what we’d do better came up all of the time. So we stopped talking about it, quit our jobs and started Principal Office Supplies (scary!).

We’ve worked in the office supplies industry for a long time, employed by some of the big multinational corporations and the smaller local independent businesses.

Sifting through our combined 25 years’ experience (makes us sound really old), we’ve taken the good stuff and made it better and taken the not so good stuff and got rid of it - to make things easy for you, our customer.

Principal provide all the products and services you need to keep your business running smoothly. You’ll get the range of products, competitive prices and the account management you’d usually expect from the big multinational corporations and the personal, friendly and tailored service from a smaller independent dealer. These things, combined with a state of the art online ordering system means we are delivering a service that’s just great– the best of both worlds.
Our Name..
Why the name 'Principal'? We came up with loads of company names, some of them were too obvious, some were cliché, some were good and some were just rubbish.

We decided on Principal, it's a bit of a play on words - we always strive to do business with the right ‘Principles’. We're professional and reliable as well as being honest, upfront and transparent. As a result of our ‘Principles’ we hope to become your ‘Principal’ supplier...maybe still a bit cheesy, but we said we were honest and that's how the company name came about and anyway, we like it.

...and we're having some great success. Operating from our offices in Leeds and delivering from national distribution centre’s in Wakefield, Leicester and Dublin(serving NI) we're working with customers big and small all over the UK making them happy using our ‘everything, made easy’ approach - one pen and pencil at a time (really corny).

Oh and there's a dog, a company mascot of sorts, she's a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel called Bridget. OK, well she’s actually just Jonny’s dog and he just brings her to work with him, she keeps everyone entertained and can do some amazing tricks… just haven’t taught her how to make the brews yet.

Anyway, we’ve been rattling on for way too long about US. Please get in touch and tell us a bit about YOU!
