Jabatha Paper and Stationery is the first 100% BBBEE paper merchant in South Africa.
We were founded in 2003 by Agnes Masabatha Sibeko, a teacher who identified an opportunity in the education sector and started a small paper and stationery business from her home.
Due to rapid growth, market demands and South African Mill requirements, we secured our own commercial warehouse in Johannesburg’s CBD in 2008. Today, this is still the site of our head office, from where we accommodate all Gauteng operations in one prime spot that is easily accessible for trade.
Through diversification we now offer a complete Office Solution specialising in paper, stationery and office furniture, which we supply to government, parastatals, corporate and commercial entities. Our national footprint boasts a service level that extends throughout the Southern hemisphere with branches based in Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal and the Eastern Cape.
Jabatha has a staff complement of 30 employees nationally, with extended collaborative assistance from channel partners within our borders. We stimulate our business growth through collaboration, diversification and applying innovative strategies in which we strive to bring about excellence, quality and convenient service in the following areas:
• By expanding product ranges
• Simplifying our clients’ order process through online shopping
• Prompt delivery service at no charge based on order value and area
• Eliminating the tedious frustrations of point-of-sale shopping
• Embracing trade in the e-commerce space, and
• Welcoming digital, through our social media platforms
Our vision is to ultimately become an empowered brand within our industry, bringing about change, growth and development, one leap at a time.
Our story, from humble beginnings, proves our company ethos: Anything is possible with hard work and a commitment to providing excellent service to our customers!
