Letter from Jim: Innovative Acquisition

The following is a letter from Papco President, Jim Mahoney, regarding Innovative Office Solution’s current Acquisition of Papco, Inc. We appreciate your continued trust in us as we merge with Innovative.

Innovative Office Solutions and Papco Supply Join Forces

We are excited to announce that on June 1st 2023, Innovative Office Solutions acquired Papco Inc., now based in Burnsville, Minnesota.  We will continue to serve you as Papco Supply but will, over time, transition to operate under the Innovative Office Solutions brand.

Innovative Office Solutions provides a full range of office products, furniture & design services, breakroom and facilities supplies and equipment, print and graphic design, organization-specific promotional products and technology solutions.  This robust portfolio fulfills the needs of schools, churches, municipalities, hospitals, clinics, the hospitality industry, and many more organizations.

Celebrating 22 years in business, Innovative has grown from 21 employees to over 350 with multiple locations in Minnesota, South Dakota and North Dakota; with a reach encompassing the entire Midwest.  This growth has been fueled by a commitment to serve our local communities with a “Relationships Matter” belief system and by providing trusted “small business service” combined with the reach and capabilities seen in larger national companies.

Innovative was founded by Jennifer Smith, who was recognized as a “culture innovator”.  She created a purpose to “Inspire people to love what they do, and who they do it with.”  Guided by this purpose, Innovative has become one of the largest independent office solutions companies the nation.

We can’t thank you enough for the loyalty and support you have given Papco Supply these past 41 years. As Papco and Innovative combine their trusted reputations and resources, we look forward to continuing to bring you the commitment and personalized service you have enjoyed while offering you even more products, innovation, and expertise to further enhance your experience with us.  Your Papco Supply team will remain in place, supported by additional teams at Innovative.

Throughout the course of this transition, our focus will be on continuing to provide the best experience possible for our customers. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jim Mahoney at jim@papcosupply.com or by phone at 612-759-7338.
