Ovendens – more than just paper

Established in 1943, Ovendens is a family-owned independent paper and envelope merchant with one simple goal: to offer the highest possible level of personal service to our customers.
In late 2012, we relocated to a 94,000 square foot warehouse in Harlow and immediately extended the range of products and services we offer.
Our staff are very experienced and highly knowledgeable, our products are from leading manufacturers, we own our delivery vehicles and we will
try harder than anyone else you deal with.
It’s a straight forward formula that has stood us in good stead for over seventy years.

We will work with you to provide an excellent level of service with the right product portfolio, to ensure that our independent and flexible values along with our friendly and traditional ethics remain.
