PORTER’S OFFICE PRODUCTS, IDAHO OFFICE PRODUCTS DEALER, ANNOUNCES MERGER WITH KNOBE’S OFFICE SUPPLY IN JACKSON, WY
REXBURG, IDAHO—Porter’s Office Products, one of Idaho’s leading independent office products dealers since 1915, and Knobe’s Office Supply in Jackson, WY, have merged.
Knobe’s owner Chet Knobe will join the Porter’s organization and serve as account executive for its new Jackson customers.
The acquisition continues Porter’s aggressive expansion program which earlier this year saw the dealership acquire the commercial office products business of M&H Office Supply in Blackfoot, ID.
“We’re delighted to welcome Chet Knobe and Knobe’s customers to the Porter’s family and look forward to sharing with them our unique brand of Blue Cow service,” commented President Mark Porter.
Blue cows, he explained, are rare and unique, just like the outstanding customer service provided by the dealership the Porter family has operated for close to 90 years.
“We’re locally owned and proud of it,” Porter added, “but we also have the resources to meet and beat anything our big box competition might offer when it comes to pricing or breadth of product offering.”
In additionto providing free next-day delivery on over 37,000 office supply items, Porter’s also carries a broad offering of office furniture solutions, janitorial and cleaning supplies, promotional products and customizable items, as well as money-saving managed print programs.
ABOUT PORTER’S OFFICE PRODUCTS: A family-owned and operated business since 1915, with the fourth generation of the Porter family now at the helm, Porter’s Office Products is Idaho’s fastest growing office products dealer, with locations in Rexburg, Pocatello, Blackfoot, Logan, UT, and now Jackson, WY. Porter’s Office Products is the home of Blue Cow Service. Blue cows are rare, never before seen and unique, just like Porter’s. Even if a customer orders something outrageous like a blue cow, we will sit down and
think outside of the box in order to meet their needs. For more information,
