Why O2

O2 is the chemical symbol for the dioxygen gas, the main element that supports life on Earth, commonly known as Oxygen. It is essential not just for life, but for the advancement of technology, industry, and services. Just like Oxygen, our services are essential for businesses as well as individuals. And just like Oxygen, our services will be ubiquitous in nature and will contribute to growth and success of our clients. This is why we believe O2 is the perfect symbol for our company and its vision. A well-functioning business or discerning clients require further elements in addition to office and school supplies, to create a successful substance. Though our initial venture is into the business of office and school supplies, it is only the first element of our eventual composition. Our plan for the future is to expand into being the leading online retailer in Sri Lanka, offering our customers a wider product range and services than any other.
