A Brief History

The Novus brand was created in Germany in 1949 as a division of Erwin Müller Group (EMCO) to produce staplers, soon becoming a leading innovator of stapling technology. In 1953 they developed the world’s first fully encased stapler with a design so supremely functional it remains virtually unchanged in the Executive Stapler line today. Over the years, Novus refined its unique technology for new, innovative products like the flat-clinch and power-on-demand staplers to make daily work tasks easier and more efficient. Today Novus staplers are trusted worldwide for their durability and performance. More recently, Novus expanded its work-life expertise into a new product line. The More Space System of products includes monitor arms, office lighting, and organizational accessories that make full use of limited workstation space and help improve productivity and comfort.
