About Trefoil

Company Profile

Trefoil was first established in 1947 by two Catholic Priests.

The company crest was, and remains, the Irish Clover of Shamrock, symbolising faith, hope and love.

Trefoil is a specialist manufacturer and converter, importer and wholesale distributor of office product consumables to the Stationery Trade whether commercial or retail or a combination thereof. Many well-known brands are included in the product basket as well as ranges where Trefoil are the sole agents for overseas principals.
