PaperPro Says NY Times Stapler Story is Misleading

Share Article

Accentra Inc., maker of the spring-powered PaperPro® desktop stapler, says NY Times review of Swingline's new PowerEase™ is misleading.

Everyone in the industry knows that that the PowerEase™ is Swingline's response to the PaperPro®.

Accentra Inc., the maker of the PaperPro® stapler says a December 24th NY Times review of the PowerEase™ stapler made by the Swingline division of Acco Brands (NYSE: ABD) is misleading. In the article Acco's director of stapling products says that the company began working on the stapler in 2003. The article fails to mention that 2003 was also the year that Accentra Inc. introduced its award winning PaperPro® stapler -- the originator of the spring-powered stapler category. PaperPro®'s unique mechanism is protected by numerous patents issued and pending.

Since its launch millions of PaperPro® staplers have been sold. "To suggest that Swingline came up with this idea on their own is outrageous," says Todd Moses, founder and CEO of Accentra. "Everyone in the industry knows that that the PowerEase™ is Swingline's response to the PaperPro®."

Accentra Inc. is a privately held company located in Newtown Pennsylvania. The company's website is PaperPro.com
