Our Journey at OVIS

Expanding Our Reach Beyond the Mid-Atlantic

Since our inception in 1989, OVIS has been dedicated to serving the woodworking community of the Mid-Atlantic states. Fast forward to today, and thanks to our online presence, we're proud to supply woodworking essentials across all of North America. Our team is here to assist you Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm Eastern Time.

Starting with a focus on local custom cabinet shops, store fixture manufacturers, commercial casework producers, and woodworking enthusiasts, we've always aimed to meet the unique needs of our clients. Our initial steps onto the internet in 1999 with an information-only website brought us recognition and clientele from across the country, highlighting a widespread demand for reliable suppliers. Motivated by this early online success, we launched our e-commerce platform in 2004, hard to believe it's been 20 years. Since then, we’ve continued to grow, driven by our commitment to responsive service and quality supplies for our expanding customer base. 

The Heart of OVIS: A Family-Owned Venture

Located in a bustling industrial park by the scenic Ohio River in Millwood, West Virginia, OVIS transcends the typical definition of a business. We are a closely-knit, family-operated enterprise with a rich heritage in the woodworking sector. Our strategic position at the heart of the mid-Atlantic not only anchors us to our roots but also enables swift shipping services to regions including the Northeast, Midwest, and Southeast.
