Our Company History
SERVING NIAGARA FOR OVER 150 YEARS
With a corporate history dating back to 1860, Beattie Stationery Limited has grown to be the leading provider of office products in the Niagara Peninsula. Although our roots are in the Niagara Region, we service major customers throughout Canada. Our company continues to achieve success and growth by providing our customers with outstanding service and an extensive selection of exceptional quality products.
Our tradition of providing unmatched selection, helpful, personal service and great low prices will never change.
Mrs. D.W. Bixby (our founder), Lawrence Beattie, Rodger Beattie and most recently Ted Hoxie have continued the company vision of expanding the business through establishing solid relationships with their customers and applying the fundamentals they believe are necessary for success. These fundamentals are: anticipating the customer’s needs, surpassing their expectations, and generating additional business based on performance.
Starting with a staff of three in 1860, Beatties has expanded to include 2 retail stores located in St. Catharines and Fort Erie and 2 Commercial Sales Offices located in Stoney Creek and Waterloo. Our Commercial Office Products division has also grown to be the largest in the Niagara Region.
Beatties is a full service Canadian company offering specialized services and flexible pricing programs. To ensure that our customers’ needs are met, we inventory over 9,000 office products in our St. Catharines distribution centre. We employ over 100 people throughout the Niagara Region and Southern Ontario and offer free “next day” office supply delivery supported by our fleet of eight vehicles.
Beatties, along with the other 34 independent dealers who collectively own Basics Office Products Ltd. have decided to adopt a national Basics identity to highlight our combined buying power.
The global buying power of Basics allows us to provide you with “superstore” prices and the widest selection of products, while our local ownership guarantees that you will always receive friendly, personal service backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee!
