OCTOBER 1998

Since its humble beginnings in a garden shed in 1998, family run OSC Sales Ltd has grown from strength to strength. A lot has changed since then! However, friendly customer service remains at the core of what we do and our traditional values still shine through.

October 1998

The very first boxes used for the Timberlok screws

1998

The first of our many valued distributors started stocking our FastenMaster ranger of specialist timber fixings. 

2000

One project saw our structural screws used by Mark Lovell Design Engineers to construct the award winning millennium cycle bridge "Black Dog Hill Bridge" over the A4 in Chippenham, Wiltshire.

2002

Early 2002 saw a move to larger premises in Burgess Hill until more space was needed for an expansion and an increased sales team.

2007

January 2007 and a larger office with warehouse in Linton, Maidstone was acquired. Our headquarters still operates from here today.

2007 - 2013

Many products were added to the range including Carpenters Mate stainless steel, the ever popular Orbix electrical screws and the Camo Edge Deck Fastening system. During 2010 more storage was required and a further warehouse was obtained in Marden, Kent. 

2014 - 2016

Early in 2014 OSC became a limited company and in 2016 the Carpenters Mate flat head screw was awarded top product of the year from the Professional Builder Magazine.

2017

Early in 2017 saw another move forward with the purchase of our powder coating machine giving a wider choice and quick turnaround for colour head painting. 

2017

Additional investment was made in purchasing new software with a 12 month implementation process to increase efficiency and customer service along with a bigger sales team. 

October 2018

OSC is 20 years old and looking forward to the future!
