Rexel Then - 1939
The Best £100 He Ever Spent!
George Drexler, founder of Rexel, was born in 1908 near Prague. In the early 1930s he moved to Hamburg and worked for a German office supply company, who sent him to London in 1935 to start a branch in England.
In 1939 he borrowed £100 to found his own company and this was to be the start of the Ofrex Group of Companies.
The companies flourished and grew quickly to employ over 1,000 workers; manufacturing office products in the UK and internationally. Rexel then sold the products to the retailers and Ofrex sold to the end user.
The group went public in the 1960s and Mr Drexler was awarded an OBE in 1976 for his services to export.
