The Raja Group have acquired Staples Solutions’ units in France, Italy and Spain, comprising of brands JPG, Bernard, Mondoffice and Kalamazoo. This acquisition will allow for one core business model, and a bolstered team to pursue opportunities within new spaces.


The RAJA Group are now on track to hit 1 billion euros in sales – strengthening their leading position as a Business to Business distributor in Europe.

Now building on this accomplishment, a recent large-scale expansion will see them acquire JPG, Bernard, Mondoffice and Kalamazoo (with a combined turnover of £320 million), allowing The RAJA Group to enter new and exciting territories.

Not only will their packaging offer expand, but the move will see them entering the Office Supplies, Equipment and Furniture markets in France, Spain and Italy, as well as the Janitorial Supplies market in France. This will accelerate their strategy to become a global supplier, helping them to continue growing organically with a complimentary product offering.


This exciting news has happened at a momentous time for The RAJA Group, as they begin their 65th year in business. The acquisitions will aid them in their aim to hit 1 billion euros in sales as they continue to develop their successful strategy and start this new phase of their development in Europe.


The RAJA Group’s agreement to purchase JPG, Bernard, Mondoffice and Kalamazoo will see them invest their resources into these historical brands, providing a partnership that will strengthen them further so they can flourish once again. The procurement will provide 3,000 jobs and see operational autonomy offered to all, relocating the teams and departments so that they can generate growth and reach operational excellence once again.

In a second phase, The RAJA Group will employ their family group principles across all brands, rolling out a mid to long-term strategy to help implement synergies in all work areas. This will help to safeguard the successful binding of these companies, and create a strong strategic partnership for customers, employees and partners alike.
