Unisource History

1968

Unisource was founded when Alco Standard Corporation (“Alco Standard”) formed a distribution company that soon would become known as Unisource Worldwide, Inc.

In 1986, the company was the leading distributor of paper and office products.

Unisource, a division of Alco Standard, split from Alco Standard. Unisource then experienced rapid growth fueled by the acquisition of several top-rated local and regional distribution companies in North America.
