In August 2000, Total Office Solutions opened its first office situated at The Mall in Westlands (Later relocated to larger premises in Soin Arcade, Westlands). The Primary motive of this office was to establish a solid foundation of low-mileage imported refurbished office equipment, namely photocopiers. This venture has proved to be a very successful one and has as a result influenced our decision to expand further.
In the year 2003, the company ventured into the consumables market focusing mainly of Inkjet and Laserjet printers. Since then we have grown to supply stationary franchises, supermarkets, banks, airlines, insurance companies and many more from our distribution centre in Westlands.
In 2005, Total Office Solutions aquired a warehouse of 4,500 sq ft in addition to it's storage space of 2,200 sq ft located above it's headoffice. This was to accomodate the large number of photocopiers and consumables storage area.
By 2006, Total Office Solutions (EA) Ltd. became the largest and undisputed leader in the supply of Refurbished copiers across East Africa.
In 2009 the company opened its first retail outlet in a great location situated on the ground floor of Jubilee insurance house (*Later relocated to a superstore on Kaunda street at the Jubilee Exchange Building in August 2013). In 2010 we opened up our first superstore located on the ground floor of Moktar Daddah Street facing Jevanjee gardens. These new branches have given our customers easier accessibility to our great products.
Our Head-Office is based in Soin Arcade, Westlands where our service & distribution centre resides. Additionally, we have two retail shops based in the centre of Nairobi Central Business District. Currently Total Office Solutions has 42 employees and is growing by more than 25% per year (based on Audited accounts Year 2008 - 2012)
In February 2012, Total Office Solutions proudly achieved their ISO 9001 Certification for quality management and logistical systems.
