Office Depot Europe
Office Depot’s European business is part of its international division. In Europe, Office Depot is the number one reseller of workplace products and services with around 6,000 associates and two main brands: Office Depot and Viking.
The company uses a mix of company-owned operations, joint ventures and strategic partnerships, with shops in France and Sweden.
Office Depot began operating in Europe in 1990, starting first in the United Kingdom. In March 1999, our Viking brand launched its first European website for consumers and businesses in the UK, a pioneering moment in the industry.
Today we are active in thirty European countries. Office Depot has subsidiaries in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
Through our European business partners we also serve customers in Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Norway, Poland, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia.
In September 2016, Office Depot reached an agreement with the AURELIUS Group for them to acquire the European operations of Office Depot. This transaction closed on 1 January 2017.
