Fellowes is a global manufacturer and supplier of office machines, archive storage solutions and office accessories.
The company was founded in 1917 when Harry Fellowes bought a young box company from a friend. The company produced and sold archive boxes of corrugated cardboard intended for bank documents. Because of a change in law, people had to keep their records.
As an expression of patriotism Fellowes called their product the Liberty Box. The box soon became a success.
Today, Fellowes has an extensive range of archive boxes with FSC® label, an international label for sustainable forestry.
Fellowes also has air purifiers for both consumers and businesses to improve indoor air quality. These air purifiers have the Energy Star label, an international label for electrical appliances with the guarantee that these appliances are energy-efficient. Fellowes operates from the head office in Illinois and 17 international subsidiaries around the world.
