CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FSIoffice celebrates its 50th anniversary with events, giveaways and an eye on the future.
Founded in 1962 by Jimmy Godwin, FSIoffice has grown to be one of the world's largest, independent office supply dealers. Half a century later, the company is still in business and is looking forward to another successful fifty years.
As part of the yearlong celebration, FSIoffice has held consumer shows in many of the regions it serves. So far, six events have taken place throughout North and South Carolina. Consumer shows will also be held in Raleigh, N.C. and Greensboro, N.C. in September. The final show will take place at the company's headquarters in Charlotte, N.C. on November 8th.
"The goal of these events is to share this major milestone with our customers and thank them for helping us get where we are today. It's also a great time for our vendors to demo new products, and of course, everyone enjoys the free samples," said Beth Freeman, assistant VP of Sales.
This year the company's website has also featured ongoing giveaways and contests for customers. Each month from January to October a name is drawn, from customers who have registered, to receive $500 of free merchandise from the 2012 FSIoffice catalog. Customers also have the chance to register to win an ounce of gold for their company. Five names will be drawn in November to receive this prize.
On November 30, the yearlong celebration will culminate in an employee awards banquet and dinner. This event, held every 18 months, is known as The Jimmys, named after founder Jimmy Godwin.
