Ballpoint celebrates 25 years in business

Ballpoint celebrates 25 years in business

Congratulations to Ballpoint Office Supplies which is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this autumn.  From floppy discs and fax machines to the latest office supplies, the company has seen it all over the years! 

Started by local men Guy Huntington and Jon Thorpe in 1991, Ballpoint was initially based in a one room office at Worth Corner Business Centre, soon expanding into a larger office on the site and employing their first member of staff.

In 1998, Ballpoint began looking for alternative premises having reached capacity where they were they urgently needed storage along with office space. Considering a number of areas in and around Crawley they decided on Manor Royal and a dual warehouse and office unit.

“Basing ourselves on The Manor Royal Estate has worked very well for us,” says Guy. “It’s a central location to receive goods, and being only a short distance from the motorway and just off the A23 it’s convenient for companies delivering to us. It’s also an ideal base for our own deliveries, which go out daily, and for staff without cars who can get here easily on public transport.”
