Our Story

Established in 1979 by Brendan Murphy, Codex was founded to offer its customers great value and an unbeatable local service on their day-to-day office supplies. This Irish company may have grown since then but the core principals of the company still remain the same.


As an independent and Irish owned company, Codex prides itself on its local business partnerships and projects that give back to the community.

Our greatest asset is our staff, and Codex is delighted to be a member of the Great Place to Work since 2017. We are also committed to supporting the minimum living wage throughout the business. These two initiatives show our commitment to consistently develop and support our staff’s development and growth.


By understanding the nature of our industry and the footprint we leave behind, we have looked over the past number of years to deliver tangible and effective environmental solutions to our customers.

As part of our ISO and environmental commitments, Codex is always looking for better ways to minimise our carbon footprint and impact on the environment.
