At a time of instability and uncertainty, Freedom Stationery committed itself to the empowerment and education of youth by manufacturing affordable school material that was necessary for learning, and distributing them widely in areas that needed it most.
The aspiration of Freedom Stationery to grow through the development of the community around it inspired an approach that would become the objective and slogan of the company: “Education for the Nation”.
Over the past three decades, Freedom Stationery has managed to evolve from a fledgling competitor into a respected leader in the industry, producing more than 100 million books every year.
Today, Freedom Stationery has five fully-fledged branches - in major centres such as Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town and Bloemfontein - that allow for nationwide distribution and export into neighbouring countries in Southern Africa.
With warehousing in excess of 100 000m² throughout the country, Freedom Stationery has the capacity to address stationery needs on a national scale.
The growth of Freedom Stationery can be attributed in part to its willingness to break ground and expand its offering while retaining its objective to support education in SA.
Freedom Stationery's approach has always been to remain flexible and accommodating when it comes to both customers and staff.
While fostering this culture has produced excellent service and exceptional product, Freedom Stationery still aims to improve itself and its offering by further streamlining its approach and ensuring unparalleled customer satisfaction.
