Procurement specialist for over 100 years


We started off as GSB (Government Stores Board) - a government agency getting better deals for all the government departments. Over the years our business has evolved as we moved into the private sector and introduced more Suppliers and Members from a wide range of industries. To reflect our growing and diversifying Member base, we changed the name of our business to n3 in November 2013 - it's a little bit catchy, a little bit clever and a lot more relevant.
