Staples acquires Finland office supply company

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. Staples announced that it has acquired Oy Lindell Ab, Finland's leading office supply company.

Bo Nyman, the current CEO of Lindell, will continue to lead the organization. Previously, Staples had an alliance with Lindell to service global contract customers in Finland. Staples inherited the relationship when it acquired Corporate Express in 2008.

"Lindell is a perfect fit with our Nordics region," said Mike Miles, Staples' president and chief operating officer. "We've worked together for two years and both companies share a passion for making it easy for our customers. Lindell is a great addition to the Staples family, and we look forward to working more closely with the team."
