In 2019, Lyreco Group has acquired DeskRight, a leading office supplies business on the Singapore market. The move puts Lyreco, European leader, and number three worldwide in the distribution of workplace supplies solutions to businesses, in a leadership position on the Singapore market and represents the first step in its new development strategy for the Asia region.
Benir's association with Lyreco has come at the right time when 'Corporate India' is progressing towards working with a single vendor; not only across the country but also globally. This strategic alliance will help Benir strengthen market share and also meet Lyreco's customer's global requirements in India.
Then CEO, Steve Law said that "establishing a partnership with Benir for the Indian market is great news for Lyreco as the coverage of India is regularly requested by our customers. We are convinced Benir is the right partner to provide our customers with a great level of service. This partnership is in line with Lyreco's strategic plan to expand our geographic coverage. With this additional key country, Lyreco covers 41 countries: 27 countries by itself and 14 through partners".
