Auckland Racking joins the Schaefer stable

Schaefer Systems Australia and Auckland Racking & Shelving Solutions have signed a distributor agreement, giving Auckland Racking the rights to distribute and install SSI SCHAEFER’S range of products in New Zealand.
Auckland Racking has been a leading designer and installer of warehouse shelving and racking systems in the New Zealand market for over 35 years. The founding partners have both had significant experience within the industrial storage industry, so it was a natural fit for them to work together to develop Auckland Racking & Shelving Solutions.
Specialising in the used pallet racking market initially, Auckland Racking has developed a reputation for providing quality total-solution projects from conceptual drawings, design, supply and ultimately safe and efficient installation or relocation. Since its foundation in 2004, Auckland Racking has become the go-to partner for project management and installation of storage equipment for many iconic brands located in New Zealand.
With over 25 staff and 5 teams of full-time installers who are supported by locally-based SSI-certified designers, Auckland Racking is well placed to cover the whole of New Zealand.
General manager of Schaefer Systems International Pty Ltd Brett Thirup said: “This partnership with Matt Cowan and the Auckland Racking team will greatly supplement the service levels and products available to New Zealand through Auckland Racking. We are excited for the prospects”.
General manager of Auckland Racking and Shelving Solutions Matt Cowan said: “This agreement gives Auckland Racking a unique opportunity to provide total end-to-end service to the marketplace. We can now manage new racking projects from design through to final compliance and sign-off. Partnering with SSI SCHAEFER is a natural fit with our existing business model and we are excited by the opportunity to work with a brand that is at the top of its class for quality, engineering and innovation. We look forward to a long and prosperous partnership with SSI SCHAEFER in Australia.”

Schaefer Sydney comes alive

Display and Storage Techniques (Aust) Pty Ltd has joined forces with the world’s largest supplier of industrial storage equipment, SSI Schaefer, and at the same time secured two industry heavyweights.

Graham Eastick and Martin Bates have joined Display and Storage, to form Schaefer Sydney, SSI Schaefer’s newest distributor. Schaefer Sydney will operate in NSW and the ACT, offering a wide range of industrial storage equipment from one source. 

Martin Bates said: “It is very exciting taking on the Schaefer brand in a market like Sydney. Graham Eastick and I will continue the great work done by the Display and Storage team to date bringing significant presence and in turn market share to Schaefer.

“Our customers will enjoy the best value-adding solutions from a team of industry professionals. As we build our team, customer outcomes will be the focus,” he said.

Operating out of its Moorebank premises, Schaefer Sydney claims to have the widest range of stock on hand in NSW, covering industrial pallet racking, hand-loaded shelving, small parts storage systems, multi tier mezzanine floors and a wide range of plastic storage containers – in fact, anything at all to do with storage.
