The History of Ledger Systems
Ledger Systems was started in November 1985 when William and Dion Botma (father and son team) bought out Zylstra & Son (Pty) Ltd.
Zylstra & Son was founded in 1927 by Answar Zylstra, who had immigrated from Friesland in the Netherlands in the early 1900’s. Answar Zylstra was on old-school craftsman book binder. Their primary business was bookbinding and the manufacturing of the old loose leaf accounting systems.
Once William and Dion took over Zylstra & Son, they saw the potential of using existing craft bookbinders to start manufacturing exclusive corporate leather stationery.
The FALCON brand already existed, having been registered in 1964. It was thus an easy decision to launch their new stationery lines under this brand. Today, this FALCON is recognized as the ‘Rolls Royce” of brands in the corporate stationery world, synonymous with quality and exclusivity.
Over the years Ledger Systems has continued to grow, expanding their range of stationery products, bookbinding services and Digital printing services to keep up with the changing times.
Ledger Systems is a privately owned bookbinding, stationery manufacturing and printing company.
