Kaniklides was founded in 1959. Initially it operated as a stationery and bookstore and eventually expanded its activities in the wider sector of trading stationery and paper.
In 2000 the company was renamed as S. Kaniklides (Cyprus) Limited, increasing the range of its products and services on a Cyprus-wide scale. The Stationery department offers a wide variety of top brands and high-quality products. The company’s long experience qualified it as a pioneer in the local market, ensuring unrivalled customer service. As of 2008, Kaniklides is the official distributor of Eastpak in Cyprus. Eastpak is a well-known American brand that boasts its portfolio includes collaborated efforts with designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Kenzo, Tim Coppens and House of Hackney.
In 2009 Kaniklides operated its new state-of-the-art facilities and started offering Secure Document Management Services. The new facilities are fully compliant with strict safety standards such as EU Direction 305/2011, Legislation for Fire Protection, Building and Operational Safety and are fully equipped with the latest technology for fire protection.
In 2017, Kaniklides initiates Records Management Service, a unique for the Cyprus market service, which is the basis for compliance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 - GDPR together with Data Protection Officer Services (DPO as a service).
Kaniklides takes security very seriously and now ranks as the biggest in its field organisation and the only one - possibly European- wide - with 8 ISO Certifications. Kaniklides is also a member of two very important organisations, PRISM International (Professional Records & Information Services Management) and IRMS (Information and Records Management Society) of Great Britain.
