Officeworks, Australia’s leading supplier of office products and services, today announced its acquisition of Geeks2U, a national provider of on-site information, communication and technology services.
Officeworks Managing Director, Sarah Hunter, said: “As part of our strategy, we are always looking for opportunities to expand our offer to better meet customers’ needs and complement the existing products and services we sell.
