Since the PLUS Corporation of America blog is just starting out, many of you may not be familiar with the company and it’s history. I know, I know, you hear the word “History” and you think back to 6th period, middle school, but don’t worry, it is actually quite interesting.
Established in 1948, PLUS Corporation is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. During this remarkable sixty-year history, PLUS Corporation has grown by leaps and bounds, becoming one of the top manufacturers in the office supply industry.
In 1980, PLUS expanded to the U.S. and PLUS Corporation of America was born. Through the years PLUS Corporation of America has focused on selling projectors, electronic copyboards, and, more recently, innovative stationery and craft supplies.
Although there have been many changes along the way, what I find fascinating about PLUS is that we never stop thinking…we are always challenging ourselves to out-do…well ourselves. Here is an example, when one thinks of a stapler, ok, let’s be honest, no one really ever thinks about a stapler, but PLUS does! PLUS has created large staplers, small staplers, pink staplers, green staplers and even stapleless staplers! They have also taken those staplers one step further. The “assisted link mechanism” they put in their palm size stapler is a powerhouse! You won’t believe what these little guys can do.
From Kes’pon Guard Your ID products to copyboards with network-saving and smart-phone capabilities, PLUS is always coming up with something new. And you should see the incredible craft items we are launching! I guess what I am trying to say in my own long-winded kind of way, is keep checking back… PLUS Corporation of America is one to watch.
