About Us

OTC was formed in 1988 and is delighted to be celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. The original 3 members of staff including Gordon and Fergus backed by 2 business angels began trading from premises in Bangor Road, Leith in Edinburgh. Gordon handled the sales side of the business and Fergus managed the warehouse and office. Today the head office is still based in Leith on Jane Street with sub offices in Dundee and Aberdeen to handle the increased client base.

The main product supplied at the time was computer and Telex consumables but this soon expanded into general stationery and print requirements. Nowadays OTC is involved in the next day supply of over 30,000 products including the fastest growing category which is cleaning, catering and janitorial products. Health and safety supplies is another sector growing rapidly.

The company has grown steadily throughout the east coast of Scotland and beyond to the west and border areas. We supply all sizes of businesses from small local to large corporate companies.

This was all possible through hard work, exceptional customer service, knowledgeable friendly staff and the ability to source all office products to offer a pure one stop shop.

A large part of our service is setting up of clients stationery/computer consumable cupboards, maintaining and managing their requiremants for them, freeing up valuable time for the clients staff. We offer this service free of charge and stock levels are checked up to twice weekly by our trained staff so clients never run out.
