Vision and Mission

The distribution of electronic office supplies is a specialism which requires total focus and dedication to achieve the best results. While manufacturers strive to reduce processing costs in the industrial column, resellers and retailers demand efficient logistics solutions that will lead to immediate cost savings. We feel that a combination of excellent operational performance and scale advantages is a vital component to delivering these efficient solutions. Resellers and retailers must be made aware that the total performance is more important in terms of value and profit than the price element alone.

Alpha International offers logistic solutions for the distribution of original electronic office supplies to dealers in the B2B and B2C segment in Europe.

Parallel to our desire for market leadership in North-West Europe, we want to be generally considered as the best performing distributor of electronic office supplies in Europe. For us, this would be the starting point to enable us to maximise profits for our business relations through best processes, the best portfolio and a proactive attitude of our employees.


Alpha International was founded in 1995 by Saphin Holding. Alpha International's turnover in its first year was 'only' 18 million guilders, a turnover that doubled many times over to its current turnover of 535 million euro (2010).

A major milestone in Alpha International’s history was its signing of European contracts with OEMs such as HP, Canon and Epson. After years of success in the Benelux the company also set up sales offices in the UK, Germany and France. However, it is the head office in Nijmegen (The Netherlands) and the 15,000 m² centralised European distribution centre in Wijchen (The Netherlands) that remain the true heart of the organisation.

In 2011 Alpha International is the market leader in the Benelux and one of the top 5 distributors in Europe. Its customers include renowned international chains such as Staples, Lyreco and Office Depot. In recognition of its excellent operational results and logistical services, Alpha International has been nominated for various awards from both suppliers and customers in the sector.
