Our Origins

EBM commenced trading in 1935 as W.E.Evans & Co. Typewriters Limited, and was incorporated on 8th May 1950, since then we have gone through four name changes to the current EBM Office Centre Ltd,  keep us in line with market trends and to maintain a more modern image.

Service has always been at the heart of EBM since 1935 when we initially started repairing typewriters, from that time to this we have always employed engineer and technical staff who have maintained the core office equipment

It seems so long ago when we were all in the office and able to enjoy a brew together
