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.
The company was restructured in 1994 by current management and today operates from privately owned premises in Crown Mines Extension 4, Johannesburg. Trefoil is very proud of the fact that the company has grown and established itself as a player in the office products industry in Southern Africa in the new democratic South Africa.
The premises consist of one modern factory and three high technology distribution warehouses. Gauteng is serviced with our own fleet of vehicles and all outlying areas including cross border in Southern Africa are serviced by independent couriers.
