About Us

Our company was built on relationships. Since 1978, when Pete Forsythe began repairing typewriters out of the basement of a barber shop, we’ve grown our business one customer at a time.

Pete had a real passion for helping people. In any case, Pete’s love for supplying businesses with quality products and personal service has been handed down through the Forsythe family.

Today, Capital Services & Supplies Inc. is an independent distributor of Office Supplies and Office Interiors in the Washington DC metropolitan region, delivering daily to law firms, government agencies, school districts and businesses of every type. We still share our founder’s obsession with office products, but our true passion lies in finding ways to help our customers’ run their businesses more efficiently.

As a local, family-owned company, CSSI has grown in the face of multinational competition because rather than invest in extravagant advertising; we invest in our clients and the local economy. We deliver our dividends in the form of attentive service, practical expertise and creative solutions. We sell top quality office supplies and furniture for low prices, but offer our insight, advice and hands-on assistance for free.

When it comes to service, our only policy is performance. Our sales reps are industry professionals with the freedom and commitment to do whatever it takes to make a satisfied customer. And what we’ve found over our decades in business is that what it really takes is the ability to listen.

There is a way for office products to make your life better. At CSSI, we get it.
