Egan Reid, one of the UK’s leading independent business products dealers, was 65 years old on 14 November.
Established as a printers and stationers in Manchester in 1957 by Jack Reid and Peter Egan, the business relocated to Stockport in 1976. Jack’s sons, Martin and Andrew Reid – well-known figures in UK office products circles – then took the business forward, expanding into new product categories (particularly the education and furniture/office fit-out segments) and making a number of acquisitions over the years.
In September 2022, former ZenOffice Managing Director Bruce Davie was brought in to work alongside Martin’s son Charlie Reid in a joint Managing Director set-up – with Martin and Andrew Reid becoming the group’s Chairman and CEO respectively.
“Our current revenues have already recovered to pre-COVID levels and the future for Egan Reid and the whole team here is very bright indeed as we move forward into the next chapter,” commented Davie.
