Coleman's History

Coleman's Office Products is regarded as one of the longest serving office products businesses in country NSW.

Coleman’s gets its name from the founder of the business in 1956, local businessman Ken Coleman. Ken sold the business to international business Pye Ltd, and it was later bought from Pye by a group of staff members, and then acquired by the present owners Stephen & Melissa McDonogh in April 2002.

Coleman’s has always been in the business of stationery and office furniture but it has also been a local icon in the evolution of office machines. Coleman’s initially forged a substantial business from the sale and service of typewriters, electronic typewriters, adding and accounting machines. 

Coleman’s has also been aligned from day one with the history of machines that duplicate, copy, print, scan and archive. Today Colemans manages on behalf of our customers a massive fleet of pay per copy/print devices. These include machines operated by one and two staff small businesses through to large government and corporate clients.

Coleman’s strength lies in dedication to personal attentive service.

Since 1956 businesses in the Central West of NSW have been relying on Coleman’s staff to meet their requirements in everything that is office supplies and service.
