RBE Stationery Manufacturers (Pty) limited as it is today was founded in 1985 by Roger and Julia Bozzoli and registered as a Close Corporation with the name RBE Publications CC.
The company sought to produce and distribute a high quality version of the then ubiquitous “Pen Carbon” style of business books. The primary feature of the RBE product was that it used NCR paper (No Carbon Paper Required to produce duplicate and triplicate copies) in its construction. The first products were, Invoices, Orders and Delivery Notes and in a short while RBE experienced a substantial demand for these products.
Over the years RBE expanded its NCR Range and started producing a broader range of various kinds of paper products. Most of the product was designed and packaged for retail consumption and our products found their way into most stationery outlets in the country. All RBE products were being manufactured by an outside supplier and RBE acted as the Brand holder and primary distributor.
In 1998 a decision was made to invest into In-house production and the company set up its own production facility in Strydom Park, Randburg, by this time RBE was distributing a comprehensive range of NCR business books and a wide range of coloured and patterned paper board and envelopes.
Today, RBE markets its product and services under 5 different sub-categories of the RBE brand.
RBE Enterprise – Business products including specialist products for specialist industries
RBE Everyday – Paper, arts, crafts and daily use products
RBE Education – School Exercise books, covers, cards, and pads
RBE Express – A full Digital and Litho printing and finishing service
