About Us

J.P.S Enterprises (Pty) Ltd , Pro-Stationers (Pty) Ltd,

J. P. S Enterprises (Pty) Ltd was incorporated in 1986 to supply products, on a wholesale basis, to companies in Botswana.

Pro-Stationers (Pty) Ltd was purchased by the Directors of J. P. S Enterprises (Pty) Ltd in 2001 as a going concern with the aim of diversifying and expanding their business activities into the retail business.

Since then J. P. S (Pty) Ltd has scaled back it’s business activities and

Pro-Stationers (Pty) Ltd has become the main focus and dominant company.

Both companies continue to operate with J. P. S Enterprises (Pty) Ltd playing an important supporting role to Pro-Stationers (Pty) Ltd. Together they form what will hereafter be called the Pro-Stationers Group.
