How Dexion Got It's Start
A Short History Of Smarter Thinking
The Dexion company (from the Ancient Greek meaning 'Right') was originally forged from Comino's hunger for efficiency gains across his printing business. Namely, the need for paper and type storage racks that could quickly and easily be dismantled and reused.
Comino's persistence and tenacity paid off. By 1947 he had developed the 'Dexion Slotted-Angle', a framing material that was, weight-for-weight, stronger than wood, and that could be stored in a fraction of the space needed for wooden timbers.
The first adjustable storage system had arrived, and blazed the trail for Dexion's purpose-built pallet racking and shelving systems.
Dexion quickly became the benchmark for innovation with a number of outstanding milestones:
1956 Slotted-Angle used to build Olympic Stadium
1957 1st Mobile Pallet Racking installation
1963 ‘Dexiongrad’ built to support the Yugoslavia earthquake relief
1970 Production of Steel Shelving begins
1980 1st Paternoster installed
1999 Dexion is acquired by Constructor Group and P90 system launched
2000 Hi280 system launched
2003 1st Tornado automatic storage installed
2011 Cantilever range launched2014 P90+ system launched
It is testament to those early pioneers that these systems are still much in demand today.
Since this Dexion has continued its tradition of innovation through smarter thinking. Something still held at the forefront of the companies values. Read more on the About Us page on our website.
