In 1962, when Jamaica gained Independence, Neville and Pamela East opened their Duke Street doors in Kingston for business. Their intention was simple: to meet the island's growing stationery needs. That they did and continued to do so over the past 55 years through market penetration and with the help of their three sons, David, Paul and Gregory.

As the company celebrates 55 years in business, its vision has moved from a focus on stationery to being the leader in furniture and office supplies through high-quality, affordable, modern and sustainable design and solutions that meet the needs of today's urban-minded client. The company has emerged as one of the largest distributors of office furniture in Jamaica and the region.

With two locations - on Skibo Avenue in Kingston and in Bogue, St James - along with a team of committed, customer-oriented team members, NevEast Supplies Ltd is a major player in satisfying corporate and small business needs, and also in the country's most recent business processing outsourcing industry, seating approximately 70 per cent of the employees islandwide around workstations that meet various price points and style variations.

Today, NevEast Supplies Limited is a local and regional leader in office and systems furniture and supplies, and is happy to boast authorised and exclusive distribution for brands known worldwide, such as Global Total Office, Teknion, Godrej & Boyce.
