Rank Zimbabwe is the largest stationery manufacturer and distributor in Zimbabwe. Rank opened its doors in 1981 and has serviced Zimbabwe’s stationery requirements since then. The focus on stationery and related products is in line with its key competitive advantages: a local company, trusted brand name and quality products. Rank has long-standing relationships with nearly all primary and secondary educational institutions in Zimbabwe and have organised a number of donation drives providing schools with essential educational supplies and sponsoring prizes and awards. Rank has a range of over 750 products from books, pencils, bond paper, maths sets, calculators, pens, markers, files as well as office furniture and equipment which includes desks, chairs, shredders and whiteboards. It is truly your one-stop shop for stationery and accessories! The majority of products are under Rank’s 3 in-house brands – MERIT, KIAN and LOTUS.
Through its manufacturing arm, Lotus Stationery Manufacturers, the company produces scholastic products such as MERIT exercise books, KIAN Counter Books and the LOTUS range of envelopes. The focus on quality at a low cost has helped distinguish these brands in Zimbabwe and through a difficult manufacturing environment; Rank has managed to fight off imported alternatives. It is a proud supporter of the BUY ZIMBABWE campaign and will continue this quest to promote locally manufactured products.
