META – the Storage System specialist from the Sauerland in Germany

META - the Storage System

We are a medium-sized company based in Arnsberg in the Sauerland region – where we are deeply rooted by tradition and by our workforce, the things which have formed the cornerstone of our success.

1896 Caspar Schnettler founded a nail factory which was later complemented by an own cold rolling mill. The first and second world war left its marks and lead to the new building of the production lines.

In 1963 modular steel shelving systems were produced for the first time for household and industry. New premises in the industrial area called "Große Wiese" were bought in 1969. META became META-Regalbau GmbH & Co. KG. In the new 5000 sqm production hall more efficient production methods for the production of the steel racks could have been realized. With the subsidiary in Graz/Austria founded in 1972, META became market leader for domestic racks on the Austrian market.

1986 Mr. Joachim Loh, Haiger bought the company. It was now part of the Joachim-Loh group. The businessman Loh extended META to a producer of professional storage technique and invested immediately in modern production lines.
In 2000 a new office building at the site in Arnsberg created room for the whole administration as well as a multimedia -based showroom and training rooms.
Already at the beginning of the new millenium, subsidiaries in the Czech Republic and Poland were founded.

With an average membership in our company of 10 years, our employees stay with the company for an unusually long period of time, thus ensuring a high level of specialization in all areas! A good operating environment and our successful employee training and further education programme ensure an enduring loyalty to the company.

This benefits our customers as well as our commercial partners.
