Universal Storage Systems

From its head offices at 6 Kruger road, Strijdom Park, Johannesburg, Universal Storage Systems offers steel racking, shelving and mezzanine storage solutions to the national and international markets.

With branches in Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Nelspruit, Universal Storage Systems’ group of dedicated
agents and distributors take pride in the fact that it has served major brand leaders across Southern Africa.

Its services include an integrated approach, which comprises concept design and feasibility studies, product development
and engineering at its manufacturing facility, validation testing through Storage Equipment Manufacturing Association-certified project managers, quality assured automated production through its ISO 9001 certification, project management and installation and an after-sales service.

From its beginnings in the 1980s, the company has undergone major changes. In 1994, with a new vision, new logo and new
name, Universal Storage Systems embarked on an internationalisation programme, which has been rewarded with successful and rapid growth. In 2013, it entered into a partnership with banking and asset management group Investec, combining Universal’s management expertise with Investec’s financial know-how. This strategic approach called for a new look and Universal Storage Systems (SA) (Pty) Ltd was born.

Universal Storage Systems has its own manufacturing facility, which is based in Johannesburg. The factory’s main equipment incudes roll mills, presses, press breaks, welding equipment, a pretreatment facility and a powder coating facility. Universal Storage Systems has also completed projects at RTT, Reckitt Benckiser, Nike, Dischem, Foschini and many more recognised brands. Universal Storage Systems is currently busy with a project for SA Rugby.
