Client Testimonial:

“J.W. Bird (Bird Stairs) has been dealing with Hamster (Novexco, Lyreco, Nova Scotia Stationers) for over 15 years. It is ironic that throughout all the name swaps and staff changes, the quality of service has never dwindled for even a second. During the many years of stationery ordering, I have also had the pleasure of getting to know staff on a more personal level. The best part of that, is the relationship is based on trust, not just costs. I am very pleased with all levels of assistance we get from Hamster, whether it is material we need in a hurry or just regular stocking orders. The support we get from Jennifer Price, our sales representative through all the channels to the driver, Kerry Hodgson, is exactly what we require. They really try to do whatever they can to help our daily situations and exceed customer service. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hamster to anyone looking for office products. The work they put in to satisfying the customer exceeds all other.”
