As has been reported in several news sources, there is the possibility of a UPS strike beginning August 1st. As UPS and their Union continue negotiations, we are recommending Strive customers that are receiving their orders, drop shipped via UPS to increase their order size to prepare for the possible Strike beginning August 1, 2023.
If you have any questions, please contact your local Strive office and we’ll be happy to assist you.

Strive Workplace Solutions of Portland, Oregon has recently completed the acquisition of Pencilman Office Products, of Nampa, Idaho.
The deal, which came into effect on November 1, 2022, will see Pencilman operate as usual until January 1, 2023 at which time it will be rebranded as Strive and be migrated onto Strive’s systems and e-commerce platform. It will then also operate from Strive’s Meridian, Idaho location.
“We feel that the Pencilman acquisition was a good match for Strive’s business model and culture, “ says Jeff Lurcook, president of Strive, “as we value culture as much as any other aspect of businesses we are looking to acquire.”
Pencilman’s former owners, Stacie Crust and Jim Jackson, will remain with Strive.
“Finding a company that aligned with our philosophy on how we take care of our customers was the biggest deciding factor in choosing to team up with Strive”, says Stacie Crust. “Going the extra mile for customers and giving customers access to reach a person and not just technology are things we have always considered important. We look forward to working alongside and becoming a part of the Strive team”.
