Be an Owner and Be Part of Our Future
What Kind of Career and Company Are You Seeking?
When you’re considering the next step in your career, what type of business do you want to be associated with? What are you looking for in a career?
Many companies say that they offer great career opportunities, they’re inclusive, and they’ll help you grow personally and professionally. But North Country Business Products truly lives those commitments as a 100% employee-owned company that is dedicated to our internal associates and our external customers.
We attribute our growth and success to the spirit and integrity of our associate owners. From entry-level to leadership positions, we offer challenging career choices and growth potential. If you want to be part of an innovative company and truly share in our success, take a look at what we have to offer!
100% Employee Owned
When you join our company, you’re not an employee. You’re an associate and co-owner of NCBP, which means that you share in the value of our profits and our success.
The profits we all work hard to achieve stay within the company, and they are used to better the business, our technology, and our benefits. They also build value in our stock price, which is determined once per year, with shares allocated to all eligible associates.
The harder we work and the happier we make our customers, the more share value we receive in return. This creates a unique ownership culture that values and practices collaboration and teamwork in order to serve our customers.
Be Part of Our Future
Since 1948, NCBP has a long history of growth and profitability. Our humble roots began as a local business in northern Minnesota, but today we have 16 locations and actively do business in 20 states throughout the Midwest and beyond. By joining our company, you can help us advance our strategic plan to grow into a nationwide company. That means new opportunities for personal, professional and financial growth for you and all of our associates. Our future is exciting, and we want you to be part of it!
Create Raving Fans
It takes dedication, communication, and consistency to create raving customer fans. That’s why we go above and beyond to understand our customers and their businesses and to create solutions that fit their unique needs. We also realize that our internal customers have unique needs and skills, so we offer a variety of training throughout the year to help our associates advance their capabilities and careers, so they can better serve our customers and value as a co-owner of our business.

Our Company in the Words of Our Associates
NCBP was a business where I wanted to get my foot in the door and prove what I could do and hopefully grow professionally as well as grow with the company. I have been here almost 20 years. There have been many challenges and a lot of hard work, but I am still proud to this day of where I work, and I look forward to what challenges lie ahead of us.
When I am talking with someone in the community and they find out where I work, one common question is, “OK, so who owns that again?” I proudly say, “I am one of the owners,” and I explain to them what that means.
As I reflect on my 10 years with NCBP, I realize NCBP has taken me from Haines, Alaska to Sanibel Island, Florida. On this journey, I have met so many amazing people and have been in so many exciting situations. NCBP has given me the opportunity to work with customers all over this country.
With that said, I didn’t do it alone. We have such a great team to work with. From always having a hotel room or a plane ticket booked, to the technical team that is willing to provide the support to fill in the blanks when needed. We have a driven sales team that is always moving us forward to the next opportunity and a leadership team that holds all the pieces together. Finally, we have a president that has called me by name since the first time I was introduced to him. These are just some of the reasons I enjoy working for NCBP.
NCBP is a family environment where I feel fully comfortable with my co-workers and managers. I also like the appreciation and recognition from management and co-workers on a job well done. NCBP gives you many options to grow within the company, if you choose to work hard, then you can truly make a difference for yourself and the company. NCBP has made a difference in my life and encourages me to reach for my goals on a daily basis.
I have enjoyed working for NCBP for the past 20 years because I’ve had a lot of freedom in my position to sell various products, adjust my own work schedule, and work as hard as I want to earn more money.
I’ve also had the unusual but fortunate role of having Dean Crotty, our President, as my immediate supervisor. Dean has always trusted me to manage my own products and sales over the years, kept me challenged with new opportunities to keep my interest up, and made decisions that were sometimes tough to take at the time, but they have always resulted in a better situation for my role with NCBP. I was originally hired largely based on Dean’s recommendation, so I owe my career at NCBP to him.
Dean has always said that one of the keys to success as a leader is to surround yourself with great people. Well, that’s another great reason to work at NCBP and why I’ve stayed here for 20 years. I’ve had the opportunity to work with a lot of really fun, hardworking friends. They are more than just coworkers that punch out at 5:00 and call it a day. They are here to help whether it is in their job description or not!
