Co Carlow Chamber honouring Carlow Businesses
Jones Business Systems
Jones Business Systems (JBS) is a second generation family business which was founded in Carlow in 1986 by its three founders Sean, Patricia and Kevin Jones. The company was originally involved in the sale and service of cash registers but quite quickly expanded its portfolio to include office equipment and supplies. Today the company is one of the premier suppliers of school and office stationery, office furniture and equipment in the South East. The company now employs forty two full time and ten part time team members based over five locations (Carlow, Kilkenny, Waterford, Wexford & Cork). JBS has expanded through a combination of organic growth combined with the takeover of three smaller competitors in recent years.
In 2009, JBS moved into their brand new state of the art 7,500 sq ft premises on O’ Brien Road, Carlow. This move made it possible for the company to further expand their range of products and services. One of the new areas was the addition of school books & school stationery to their portfolio. The company have now become established as the leading provider of school books in Carlow and also offer a range of additional services such as book covering and labelling. Parents can now purchase their school books online and by doing this, can avail of a 10% discount or free school book covering throughout the month of July (log on to carlowschoolbooks.ie to avail of this offer). By using the JBS online ordering service, parents can now buy online & avail of the associated discounts but also have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you are dealing with a local, reputable company that you can trust.
In these recessionary times, JBS have also become heavily involved in helping their business clients to cut their photocopying and printing costs through what is known as managed print services. Customers typically avail of a free audit of their printing activity and following a review, customers typically save up to 30% on their existing printing costs. JBS also supply an extensive range of additional products including art supplies, printers and computer equipment, home and office furniture and stationery, customised wedding invitations, educational supplies as well as a fast turnaround printing, binding & laminating service.
