Albany Office Supplies Limited was founded in 1979. The company began business in small premises in Stoneybatter in Dublin and in the following years, the company has grown to become one of the leading office supplies and print companies in Dublin.
Since its foundation, by John Power, the company has set itself many goals. These goals were to deliver a level of service, commitment to quality and to develop a relationship with its customers that would last.
Further evidence of the company’s commitment to service and quality is the large number of customers that have a long term relationship with Albany, some for more than 25 years.
We occupy a 24,000 sq ft unit; 5,000 sq ft are used as our administration office and our furniture showrooms, based in Dublin 12. The remaining 19,000 sq ft house our associate company Alert Print Limited, along with the print finishing department, furniture and stationery stores and our goods inward and despatch department.

Quality Policy statement
The only way to manufacture high quality products, to meet customer specifications, whilst remaining competitive and efficient, is to commit the company to a quality system.
In order to achieve this we create an awareness of the importance that quality pays; an awareness that quality is the responsibility of all concerned; a truly companywide philosophy.
This belief is introduced to all persons from the day of recruitment with emphasis coming through management and through encouragement from everyone involved.
The future of our company relies on our success in achieving a high reputation in the market place, as being a quality conscious company. It is our belief that in order to do this we must achieve, maintain and develop a formal quality management system, thereby providing a sound basis for our commitment to quality and service.
Compliance with the requirements of this is mandatory for all staff.
The following plan is currently in action at Albany Office Supplies Ltd:
Colour coded bins
We have installed colour coded bins throughout our company in order to separate all generated waste.
Collections have been reduced to one black bag collection per week and a daily green bin collection when necessary. All other bins are collected on a telephone order basis.
Due to the volume of cardboard packaging generated we have installed a small baling unit in the waste area of our warehouse. Baling our cardboard will significantly reduce the amount of loose cardboard taking up valuable space and is much easier to manage.
To ensure that the waste programme is implemented in full, we have trained staff in all areas covering waste management plan. Two of our operators have been fully trained in all aspects covering the baling station including health and safety training.
