Jim Leyden – Managing Director
Jim Leyden, having already been in the office equipment sector for a number of years, founded Bizquip in a basement premises in Merrion Square in 1984 with a vision to create a company based on personalised service with an ethos of service and integrity, thus evolving to become one of Ireland’s leading distributors of office equipment and furniture.

that will ensure that Bizquip remain at the forefront of our sector for many years to come. Jim is proud to state "We will never forget our roots and no job is too small," and Jim’s often repeated motto of being "big enough to cope and small enough to care," has stood the test of time. Building a family business ensures that the team within Bizquip consist of customer focused professionals, very many of whom are with the company between 25-33 years at this stage, a fact that is somewhat unique in the service sector and one that Bizquip is justly proud of.
