A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US


Be inspired to work! We create healthy, beautiful and effective workplaces...

In 1996 Business Supplies (North Wales) Ltd was born. We started delivering stationery to local businesses and installing basic office furniture across North Wales. We’ve grown considerably since the 90’s… Today, we now have two dedicated teams: Stationery and Interiors – both teams work with exciting manufacturers and deliver appropriate, considered and cost effective office solutions across Cheshire, North Wales and the North West.

Here’s our small but perfectly formed team in their younger days! Collectively we are ‘Team Envy’.

We’ve worked together for quite a few years so know each other super well.  We all have different skills but share the same values making it an awesome team to belong to. We take pride in a job well done and deliver a great service cheerfully.  It’s crucial to our well-being.

Tom Smith

Operations Manager

Tom Smith

Operations Manager

Tom was a customer and we got on so well that he joined the team in 2012 to look after our IT and marketing. A few years on… and juggling everything in between he soon became the ‘go to guy’. He left us for a year but just couldn’t stay away! (we remind him regularly!). Tom now oversees all finance, systems & operational matters and helps us to work as smart as is humanly possible.

He is hilarious, ‘on it’, smart and gets bored quickly!

Planning & Social Guru

Paul helps Office Envy with business planning and social media. He is also a Business Coach for Cranfield University and Business Wales so we are lucky to have his guidance.

The rest of his time he is skiing (if there’s snow), cycling (if there isn’t) and walking Enzo the Fierce.

Lee Murphy

Lee oversees the Office Interiors division and is a real stickler for detail.  He works closely with our approved suppliers, purchasing desks, office seating and accessories and even oversees the third party services (such as data cabling & electrical works) and extra bits of the detail to ensure smooth installations. He makes sure our customers are delighted with their finished offices.

Lee loves to ride his bright green motorbike up the Horseshoe Pass on a sunny weekend.

Beth joined the team February 2017 and has slotted in with her Glossop accent and wicked sense of humour. She is a stationery whizz and always finds the weird and wonderful stuff our customers ask for… you name it and she’ll find it.

Beth has done her CBT and is now doing her Direct Access training for her motorbike. She’s a petrol head!

Stuart has been looking after our delivery and installation services for over five years. There are always little challenges when installing (someone changing their minds) but Stuart finds the solution and sees it through so everyone is happy.

At weekends you’ll find him underground with his caving mates.

Harry looks after credit control and makes sure customers get everything they need to pay (on time) 🙂

If you need a copy invoice, an up to date statement or want to pay by direct debit – he’s your man.

Delivery Co-ordinator

Les is super cheerful. He has retired from his Bed & Breakfast business in The Lake District and takes it easier these days.

When he isn’t delivering stationery and looking after Office Envy customers he’s selling his Jersey ice cream from his tricycle on the top of Moel Famau on sunny weekends.
