What do you like about doing business in Ohio? Ohio is the heart of our nation and a great place to grow. Diversity is a moving force for learning, for understanding, for personal and economic growth in our communities, our state and world. Ohio is a diversified state that encourages, nurtures and promotes the growth of businesses. From the early years of Office Partners, the Ohio Small Businesses Administration- Defiance (Ms. Merry Beavers) office has been instrumental in guidance and growth of the company.
Description of business: Office Partners is an independent, full-line office products and commercial furniture dealership located in Bryan, Ohio. This northwest Ohio business was founded in April 2005 by Cookie Lehman and Cindy Wilson. Office Partners takes pride in offering Business to Business (B2B) and Business to Consumer (B2C) quality products at competitive prices, and extraordinary customer service, with professionals dedicated to provide solutions based on unique clients' needs.
After working over 25 years for several privately owned dealerships and national office products corporations, it was evident that in many cases integrity in the workplace, as well as personal and customizable services for customers, was lacking in the marketplace. After much research, customer encouragement and prayer, Office Partners began. Office Partner's mission is to treat each client and employee with the respect, the trust and the loyalty of a "partner". The Golden Rule is the company's guiding compass in all business decisions as it pertains to customers, employees and our communities.
Office Partners was the 2009 Ohio Keys to Success Award recipient in the wholesale/retail division. The Keys to Success Award showcases Ohio's leading women-owned business and rewards personal achievements, financial and operational growth. Office Partners strongly believes and practices community involvement, which stimulates learning, understanding, personal and economic growth within the community.
