Office Depot Spotlights Diversity-Based Product Catalog for Procurement Departments

Office Depot's Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUB) catalog highlights an assortment of more than 1,400 items ranging from Hess white board cleaning products and Smead file folders to Neutral Posture desk chairs and Lepages packaging tape. HUBs are enterprises that have not historically had equal opportunities. Examples include certified minority, women, disabled, veteran and small businesses. Office Depot reportedly is the first company to create such a catalog, which features its complete diversity product offering and is available to national corporations and accounts.

By purchasing from Office Depot's HUB catalog, customers are able to fulfill their second-tier HUB spending requirements. Additionally, Office Depot hopes to inspire future HUB suppliers to participate in the company's sourcing opportunity process so that they can be identified and their products can be included in future catalogs.
