As the largest Swiss B2B mail order provider for office supplies, “iba” has a long tradition of supplying business clients quickly and reliably.
It all started in the garage
In 1939 Ilo Basci founded “iba”, a small store for office supplies. The sole proprietorship’s warehouse was located in a modest garage during the first few years. Today, after 84 years of growth and development, the company fills huge warehouses which supply customers throughout Switzerland. In the assortment you will find products from big brands such as Brother, Caran d’Ache and BIC – as well as low-cost own brands.
“iba Büromaterial” is focusing more and more on environmentally friendly manufactured products. Many items are manufactured in Switzerland or in nearby foreign countries in order to shorten transport routes and keep emissions as low as possible. And a photovoltaic system is also being installed on the roofs of one of the large warehouses. It is expected that this will soon produce its first electricity – even more than “iba” itself needs. The surplus green energy is fed into the grid.
