Guaranteed Quick Delivery

Quality always comes first at Van Uden. At the same time, however, we're also looking to offer our customers a fair price to go with that first rate quality. As our production processes are automated to a high degree, we're able to do both. We process approximately 1.5 million kg of paraffin a year and our warehouse boasts storage capacity for some 3,000 pallets. This allows us to quite often source your order directly from stock and ship it out to you the very same day you placed it with us.
