Capital Office Products was founded by Richard and Carolyn Nelson in 1994. The Nelsons have lived in Santa Clarita since 1985 where they raised their two daughters and have enjoyed supporting the community. Capital Office Products started with the firm belief that there is a space in business relationships for clients that value the vendor relationship, their desire to connect with those clients, and to exceed their expectations order after order, year after year.

Capital Office Products’ success has come from building long term relationships built on trust and reliability. Their handpicked staff that has been part of the team since the beginning guarantees an excellent customer service experience. Flexibility is key, from the way an order is placed, to the way it is paid for with no corporate constraints.

Clients won’t give up competitive pricing in order to receive the personal attention of an answered phone with a member of the Capital Office Products team who knows their name and helps them get their order completed. In fact, Capital Office Products save businesses money with brand alternatives, carton source pricing and good old-fashioned problem solving. They believe that loyalty begins by giving their customers the best possible pricing and service up front, no coupons or rewards necessary. Capital Office Products clients become part of their extended family!

Carolyn and Richard Nelson - Founders

“Buying locally is one of the only ways we can support our local community and each other.”

Carolyn and Richard Nelson are high school sweethearts, marrying and moving to Santa Clarita in 1986. Since then they have raised two daughters and continue to call Santa Clarita home. With prior experience in the industry in a family business, they founded Capital Office Products with a solid foundation of their knowledge and experience. As a local business serving other local businesses, Carolyn and Richard believe their peers want the personal touch in the midst of big-box presence. Outside of the business Carolyn and Richard enjoy spending time with loved ones, taking adventures in their RV, and giving the Capital Office Products mascot Mr. B the best life ever. They love supporting their community and say running into clients in town is one of the best parts of being a small business.
