Davpack has been a major supplier of packaging materials to businesses around the East Midlands for over 40 years, ever since Henry Davenport formed the company in Derby in 1968. Henry dealt almost exclusively with local traders and his reps were regularly seen selling their wares around the city’s shops and markets. It was very much a local company supplying local people.
Today, we have customers the length and breadth of Great Britain and Ireland, and much of our business is done via the internet, with deliveries made by a national courier service. It’s the best way of keeping our prices low and getting your orders to you quickly!
Local people, local knowledge
If you live in the East Midlands, however, chances are you’ve seen a bit more of us than a website. Perhaps you’ve had a visit from our sales rep, Richard, in which case you’ll probably already know that there aren’t many around who can match his packaging experience or who are better equipped to find exactly the right packaging solution for your business.
Or maybe you pop in to our offices to pick up your packaging supplies yourself, rather than having them delivered. You’ll be especially honoured, because you’ll have met members of the sales team face to face and discovered they’re even more friendly, helpful and knowledgeable in the flesh than they are on the phone.
Last, but not least, our own drivers deliver to addresses within 20 miles of our warehouse. That means if you live in Derby, Nottingham, Burton, Ashbourne, Belper or Matlock (or any of the many other villages and towns in the area!), you’ll almost certainly have met Keith or Alan, and won’t need telling they’re two of the most reliable and customer-focused delivery drivers on the road.
At Davpack, we always aim to exceed the expectations of all our customers with our low prices, speed of delivery and levels of service, no matter where in the country you are. But we’re very proud of our long-standing ties to East Midlands industry and e-commerce and more than happy to be able to provide them with that extra personal touch, the cherry on top of our packaging cake!
