Ceres - Home of SA's Fruit
Named after the Roman goddess for agriculture and fertility, Ceres could quite literally be considered the fruit bowl of South Africa. Inland of the West Coast, tucked away between mountains, the Ceres Valley, with its Mediterranean climate is ideal for growing fruit, something the region’s farmers have become very good at doing.
The Ceres Fruit Juices Pty Ltd is named after the town where it was founded in 1986 by local fruit farmers as a way to add value and expand the market for their produce. Ceres advertises their products being made from 100% fruit juice, without preservatives. The products are widely sold in Africa and imported to over 80 countries in areas including North America, Europe and Asia.
The United States is one of their largest markets, where it is a widely recognised brand of fruit juice. In winter, Ceres attracts visitors for a reason far removed from fruit. The snow that falls on the surrounding Matroosberg Mountains has moved some to call the area “South Africa’s Switzerland”.
A notable resident of Ceres was the heart surgeon Christiaan Barnard, who performed the first human-to-human heart transplant at Groote Schuur Hospital in 1967. Barnard worked in Ceres as a general practitioner before moving back to Cape Town to further his career at Groote Schuur.

Inefficient laptops, desktops and printers can slow down an entire office and decrease productivity. A business that uses outdated technology might just see its profits plummet. To keep your office running smoothly and effectively, it’s important to have high-performance hardware that works fast and efficiently.

CERES CANTEEN AND JANITORIAL
No one likes to do their job hungry or in an unclean environment.

CERES DIARIES, JOURNALS AND PLANNERS

Put your important dates front and centre with our branded desk calendar which gives you the space you need to keep on top of things. Accessible yet out of the way, it’s a practical office supplies item designed to help you organise your life, not to mention taking down that all-important phone number when a notepad is out of reach.

Schedule appointments and events on layouts featuring a page-a-day or 15-minute increments. Choose your diary from a variety of colours and designs to suit your tastes, avoid mistakes with non-glare paper and much more.

In our stationery catalogue you’ll also find diary stands and legal diaries to make sure you always have a plan, and know where to find it.
CERES APPLIANCES AND ACCESSORIES
Running an office with old and worn electrical accessories is both dangerous and annoying. The lights could go out at any moment, plus hardware could suffer irreparable damage after an electrical surge.
Cut down on the time spent looking for extension cords and create a safe environment with trusted multi-coloured quality Ellies products. Make sure it’s all systems go with Ellies multiplugs, and protect your hardware with Ellies surge protectors, with illuminated on/off switches.
At West Coast Office National you’ll also find the batteries you need to stay powered up on the go. Choose between Duracell and Energizer batteries across a wide range of strengths and durability. Re-use with a battery recharger and rechargeable batteries on hand, or pick from lithium coins, alkaline batteries and more.
Find the right power solutions to solve your electricity problems to keep the lights on. Speaking of which, get the lighting you need for the requirements you have, whether that be overhead or on your desk. Never drop a call with trustworthy telephone accessories.
Sending documents and items through the mail is still very much a requirement for the modern office. Not having an envelope on hand, whether through good old forgetfulness or thinking the days of snail mail are over, could see you end up high and dry.
Whether peel and seal, opaque, white or manila, we’ve got you and your mail covered. Choose from a variety of sizes including B4, B5, C3 pocket, C4, C5 and C6. Send your business correspondence in a window banker envelope that’s cello-wrapped, or not.

You may not have a mailroom and trolleys in your building anymore, but the mail still matters. With us, you’ll find what you need and have it delivered to your door by none other than the postal service.
AURORA FILING AND STORAGE
For see-through clarity, and the perfect way to protect and display documents, see our West Coast Office National A4 display files. These multi-purpose lightweight display books have anti-static sleeves, which makes it easy to flip through, one page at a time. We also have a wide variety of filing pockets with or without spines.
If it’s files you’re after, we have them. Choose from a variety of lever arch files and stack them where you can see them, with easily identifiable spine labels. Choose between board and PVC soft touch in a variety of colours.

CERES INKS, TONERS AND RIBBONS
The lifeblood of any office is the ink that runs in its printers. Faded copy – or even invisible copy! – is a nightmare and can leave you red-faced in front of clients and colleagues. Keep your printer’s “tanks” full with ink, toners and ribbons from leading brands.
We stock all the major names in print and ink. Choose from Brother, Canon, Citizen, Epson, HP, Kyocera, Lexmark, Mannesman Tally, Minolta, Oki, Panasonic, Samsung, Seikosha and Xerox.
CERES COMPUTER ACCESSORIES
It’s the little things that count. In the case of computers, little to medium-sized things such as flash drives, mouse pads and hard drives. Without accessories your laptop or desktop will not perform to its fullest potential. You need the bells and whistles to make it sing.
Few things are as annoying as standing with a device in your hand without a cable to plug it in with. Make the connections and order lightning cables, male to female cables and micro USB cables online from West Coast Office National. Choose from leading brands such as Amplify, Volkano and Gizzu. If there’s a cable missing in your office, you know where to find a new one.
CDs, DVDs, data cartridges and memory discs are the mobile filing cabinets of today. Store movies, music, sound bites, presentations, important documents and more. We stock the best from Verbatim, SanDisk and PQ1. For mass storage devices choose from Transcend, Seagate and others for high-performance hard drives. Don’t lose sleep worrying whether you’ve lost all your work. Make back-ups and get a good night’s rest.
For those times that you need to plug in more than one device, or maybe seven, have a look at our hubs and switches. From three-port to four-port to, yes, seven-port we have them all. Charge two devices at the same time with specialised power banks or jump start a flat battery up to 20 times with a jump starter. It’s all in our catalogue.
A good keyboard and mouse can go a long way to improving your work experience. Choose between wireless and wired in a variety of colours and designs to suit your needs and tastes.

Whatever your requirements, we have the accessories you need.
CERES LABELS AND LABELLING MACHINES
Who’s is this? What is this? Where does this go? These are the questions you’ll often hear in an office without labels and labelling machines. Whether it’s with a round coloured sticker or a custom-printed label printed on specialised tape, labelling your office equipment, files, books and, yes, your favourite stapler can organise an office the way you want it to be.
Writing addresses on envelopes when you’re mailing a ton of people is both hard work and time consuming. With address labels neatly packed in dispenser boxes you can make bulk mailing as easy as pull and stick. Every business person needs a business card. Network successfully and build your contacts with high-quality business cards.
Add a touch of colour to your working life and make use of colour coding to organise the office. We have round colour code labels, high glow shelf talkers and more. Stick labels on your files to know what’s going on inside. Label their spines so you know where they go. Get a labelling machine and make labels in the office. Choose from a variety of sizes, Bluetooth-enabled and more.
With A4 inkjet laser label templates you can use the printer you have to print labels in-house. Available in various formats and tablet layouts, the templates make it easy to create your labels simply using MS Word in Microsoft Office. Print labels fast and on-demand. For messages that are often used, choose pre-printed labels with words such as ‘FRAGILE’ and ‘CONFIDENTIAL’.
And for the messages only you can write we have white roll labels in all shapes and sizes. With a smudge-resistant surface they’re ideal for price-marking, organising and filing. We have all your labelling and stationery needs covered. All the more reason to stick with us!
CERES WELLBEING AND SAFETY
It might not look so at first, but the workplace is filled with health and safety risks. From big risks like fire to smaller risks like slippery floors and even unknown risks like sitting wrong, there are many ways unforeseen events can impact productivity, or worse. Feeling at risk is not the best way to get work done. The workplace should be a safe space, so make sure you have what you need to feel secure.
The good news is we’ve got your wellbeing and safety covered from head to toe, and beyond. Sitting with bad posture at your desk can have long-term consequences. Make sure you’re comfortable at your desk and choose from a wide range of laptop risers, lumbar-support chairs and foot and wrist supports.

Prevent accidents on the stairs with indoor and outdoor anti-slip tape. Find safety masks, safety spectacles, industrial safety caps and safety signs, from exit signs to wet floor signs and more.

Ergonomics and security are important considerations in any working environment. At West Coast Office National we take your wellbeing seriously. Contact us for products to suit your every safety need. And if we don’t have it, we’ll get it.
CERES OFFICE FURNITURE
Without any furniture your office would simply be carpet, walls and a roof. Unless you’re running a yoga studio, that simply won’t do as a working space. Along with atmosphere and creating a good impression when clients walk in, the furniture in your office sets the tone for a healthy and efficient working environment.
From the boardroom to the canteen through to the reception, you won’t have trouble filling space with the wide selection of office furniture and accessories we have available.

Choose from filing cabinets and, even, lockers.
From training to conferencing through to day-to-day life at the office, we have the furniture you need to create the space you want. Order online and we’ll will deliver it to your door, free of charge.
CERES OFFICE MACHINES AND ACCESSORIES
Sometimes a bigger job is called for. Sometimes papers need to be shredded or cut with perfection. It’s not necessary to run to a specialist shop to get laminating done, or binding combs installed. With the right equipment you can do it in the office and save yourself time and money.
Bind presentations and reports professionally with home office binders built for the job. Choose from entry level machines for small office needs or larger models for a more industrial approach. Get plastic bind combs in a variety of colours or stock up on wire binding elements if metal is the way to go.

And if it’s more selective cutting you need, have a look at our trimmers and guillotines, which come in a variety of cut lengths, styles and sheet capacities.
Crunching numbers? We have the calculators you need to make the sums you have to. Choose from premium desktop calculators to scientific models. Find the perfect pocket calculator or specialise with a tax calculator. We also have cash registers, and don’t miss our bundle promos.
CERES OFFICE SUPPLIES AND DESK ACCESSORIES
Basic accessories like staplers, adhesive, clips, pins and punches are the nuts and bolts of any office. Without them within arm’s reach or, at the very least, on the premises, your day can go from great to grey in an instant. With the West Coast Office National stationery range, your desk accessories needs are met.
Choose between clear tape, double-sided tape and many more, whatever your adhesive needs. We have Prestik, Pritt and Bostik Super Glue for your basic sticking needs as well as glue dots and super clear tape for more specialised requirements. Find wood glue, Bostik Clear and more.

Without paper, your printers won’t run and neither will your office. Paper is needed for everything from taking notes in a meeting to putting together a presentation. Without paper, faxes won’t come through and the copier won’t work. Paper – from a piece to a ream – is essential to keep your office functioning.

CERES PRESENTATION Gear
With a successful presentation you can gain a new client and grow your business. It’s with presentations that you train staff and explain concepts and come up with strategies in front of a large group of people. Without the boards and projectors to do a professional and smooth presentation, you might lose business and fall behind the competition. Or you may simply have an office where ideas aren’t shared and no one knows what’s going on.
We have the equipment you need to put your best foot – and work – forward while sharing your ideas. From accessories like data projector ceiling mounts to laser pointers, we have the nuts and bolts for you to feel secure that everything will go according to plan. Place your projector on a steel trolley for ease of movement and make use of a USB laser presentation remote.
Keep track of jobs or hold that all-important brainstorming session with the help of a magnetic whiteboard. We have a wide range available including the exclusive West Coast Office National aluminium-frame magnetic whiteboard with a pen tray, magnetic eraser and two black markers included. Or choose from Parrot whiteboards, with foldable pen trays, moulded corners and more.
For neat and highly professional ads, notices and posters around the office, have a look at the display cases in our catalogue. You have many options including spring-action aluminium frames for quick and easy poster changes. Or get a double-sided window poster frame and display double-sided posters behind non-reflective media covers.
Easels and easy rail systems make light of the work associated with presentations to ensure everything runs smoothly. Have a look at our flip charts and state-of-the-art projectors. When it comes to screens we have what you need to present like a pro. Choose between pull-down screens, tripod screens and electric screens. The best sign that your business is doing well is a high-class sign that says so. Choose from a variety of signs in our catalogue and show the world what you’re made of.
CERES RUBBER STAMPS
Create new marketing opportunities with our printer line stamp. Newly designed with a branded plastic cover, the stamp integrates all the advantages of a stamp with a sleek and modern design. Or find the ideal custom and embosser stamp for reliable repeated use.
To stamp, a stamp needs a pad and ink. We stock metal stamp pads and endorsing ink from all the leading brands including Foska and Penguin. Find pre-printed, self-inked stock text stamps and repeat the same message up to 20 000 times before having to re-ink. The stamps come in a variety of ergonomic designs and sizes to make sure your stamping work runs like clockwork.
We also have numbering stamps and embossers for you in our stationery catalogue to leave the marks you need on the documents that require them. Order online today, and we’ll deliver it anywhere on the West Coast for free.
Whether you have money, expensive equipment, sensitive documents – or all of the above – on your premises, it’s important to keep it safe and secure to avoid serious damage to your business. Theft of property is a loss that’s easy to prevent with reliable locks and safes.
We have the protection you need for peace of mind that your valuables are safe behind lock and key. Choose from leading padlock manufacturer Yale’s extensive range of full brass body padlocks suitable for indoor or outdoor use, with variable U-metal lengths and thicknesses.

Boxes that tear apart and seals that break can cause untold damage to equipment and products. When it comes to packaging, reliability is key to ensure you don’t suffer losses that could have been prevented. From boxes to buff tags, everything on the packaging production line – large scale or small – must be of a high quality.
Make sure you have the tools you need to pack in the warehouse with accessories including our new exclusive cutting knife range, with stainless steel metal sheaths and two spare blades in the body. Make sealing boxes a dream with the Gemnes packaging tape dispenser, which pulls and cuts off with ease. Be mobile and maintain an excellent health and safety record with a fold nose trolley.
We have the pallet rap you need to seal and secure with ease. Or stock up on protective bubble wrapping for all those extra-important items, equipment and products. Objects that need protection aren’t always flat, square or rectangular. Guard against damage with durable, re-usable postal tubes in a variety of sizes, with end caps included.
For added safety on your packaging and in the warehouse, have a look at our wide variety of security tapes and seals available. From highly visible, brightly coloured information labels that carry important dispatch and handling information to black and yellow barrier tape, we have the products you need to be secure.
