Welcome, Esselte!

Esselte, a leading global manufacturer and marketer of office products and business supplies, sells products and services in 144 countries around the world, with subsidiaries in 25 countries.  Esselte also owns a strong portfolio of international and local brands, including Leitz®, Rapid®, Esselte®, Xyron®, Bene® and Petrus®.

Esselte first put its mark on the office products industry in 1913, when 13 Swedish printing and graphic businesses joined forces to create the company SLT. After more than 55 years in business as SLT, the company renamed itself Esselte in 1970 and acquired several high-profile international brands.

At the end of the 20th century, Esselte acquired Leitz, Germany’s largest office supplier and inventor of the Lever Arch File. In 2002, the U.S. private equity investment firm, J.W. Childs, purchased Esselte. With a renewed focus on innovation, Esselte acquired the world-renowned stapling and fixation specialist brand Rapid® and Xyron®, a brand of innovative products for craft, education and creative professional markets.

Esselte: Innovators in organization for more than 100 years, and now a proud member of the ACCO Brands family.
