A.R Hyslop was formed during the mid 1980’s and the present Company, A.R Hyslop (Lancaster) Limited was set up in 2006 following a takeover by the current management team of Nigel Kennington and Steve Slater who are both in the forefront of running the business on a day to day basis. Hyslops Office Supplies is based in the historic City of Lancaster and will personally deliver all orders in the local area, although by arrangement we can arrange for deliveries to be made to satellite offices based in other parts of the United Kingdom. We supply our goods and services to businesses of all sizes, schools and universities, and the general public in Lancaster and the surrounding area.

Our standard catalogue contains more than 35,000 business related office products although through our extensive contacts within the industry we can source a great deal more besides. We have a selection of office desks and chairs on display at our showroom to offer you ideas on style, size and colour finishes, although a great deal more are available from our manufacturers. We also offer, free of charge, a planning and design service. You are welcome to call and browse, although should you find it difficult to get to see us during the working day we can arrange to stay later in order to fit in with you.


We can provide the majority of your office requirements from the initial furnishing through to the every day office stationery required to run your office. This accommodates a huge array of products from paperclips and pens, desking and seating, through to printers, photocopiers and multi-function machines. The majority of our office supplies are available for next working day delivery, and we will deliver direct to your door within the local area free of charge. Many furniture items come flat packed in order to conserve space, but we will build and position all items as part of the service, all covered with the price we quote.


recycled supplies and recycling wrappings

We are committed to helping the environment where we can and we will recycle all wrappings wherever possible. We will also collect used original toner and ink cartridges which are then donated to local charitable groups to assist in their financial funding.

We can also supply a wide selection of recycled and 'green' products for everyday use within the office. We will be happy to discuss your requirements in this area.

"Dear Steve and Nigel,
Re: Furnishing of the new Sixth Form Centre

I must send my belated thanks for your professional guidance and help with the furnishing of our new sixth form centre. You were involved from the start of the project and were there to measure and plan against the drawings on site, often in dusty and difficult conditions. Despite our many questions and requests for samples, you provided us with mobile numbers and were always ready to find the quotes we required. You brought furniture for us to check beforehand and showed a personal attention to detail that is rarely found in a commercial age.

We were especially grateful for the dedication and commitment you showed in the three days you devoted to delivering the furniture and setting up each room, even though you were working around the builders at the time. This was your project, too. You were keen to ensure that everything was fitted correctly; you cleaned and cleared everything after you. Your continued attention since then has also been superb; providing us with anything more we needed quickly, efficiently and always with a smile.

We chose Hyslops because of the strong bond you have forged with the school but also because of your excellent customer service and advice. Thank you for making that part of the project fun and exciting and for continuing to maintain quality and competitive prices.

Jackie Garnett
Head of Sixth Form"

"As a professional businessman, I am always dependant on receiving my stationery without delay. This I have found by ordering through Hyslops Office Supplies. I have been one of their original customers when the business was taken over by Steve and Nigel and their professionalism since taking over the business is second to none. I have been very happy with the competitive pricing, the service - next day free delivery and the advice provided is well above and beyond the norm."

M. Parkinson, Accident and Insurance Investigations

"We have always found Hyslops friendly, helpful and with extremely competitive prices. Steve and Nigel are always on hand to offer advice and make sure we get the best products at the best price, as soon as possible. It’s great we can use a local company who I feel offer above and beyond their competitors"
