A former prosecutor and former federal prosecutor says she’s surprised by the popularity of the “Sayes Office Supply” brand of office supplies.
The company, which is based in Albuquerque, sells items such as notebooks, binders, pens and folders and has offices in Albuquerque and Fort Worth.
It’s unclear if Murphy’s office supplies are the same ones that were on display at the Republican National Convention.
But if they were, the company’s products are not widely available on the market, said John Sayes, who now runs Murphy’s Supply, a wholesale business.
Murphy’s supplies have been used by Republican presidential candidates in recent months, including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Ohio Gov.
John Kasich and former Arkansas Gov.
The GOP convention, which began Monday, featured the candidates from the four states.
Murphy’s supplies were on the table.
But the campaign did not include any items from the company, Sayes said.
“If we had not included them, we probably would not have had them there,” he said.
Sayes is not a member of Murphy’s supply team.
“The people who were there that day were very professional and did not bring any supplies,” Sayes added.
“I think the people who brought the supplies did so out of genuine interest in what they were doing and did it very well.”
Murphy told ABC News in an email that his company has made “many, many thousands of products available” to customers.
Murphys website says it has been supplying office supplies since the 1980s.
The company has offices and supply stores in Albuquerque.
The brand is available in four colors: red, blue, green and yellow.
It also sells other office supplies including white binders and folders.
Murphy told ABC that he makes “no claims as to the quality of any of the products.”
