We are a Tier II Supplier
Office Essentials is proud to offer an exceptional choice of innovative products and services to our customers through our robust supplier diversity program. Our program not only helps our customers in their supplier diversity purchasing initiatives, but also provides opportunities for small and diverse-owned supplier businesses to grow and succeed.
How can supplier diversity help your business?
At Office Essentials, "supplier diversity" isn't a buzzword. It's a powerful initiative that creates a network of business partners that can increase revenue, innovations and cost savings - and also add economic value by encouraging the growth of diverse businesses. Best of all, supplier diversity helps create jobs to uplift the communities where live, work, and play.
