Our Services to Merchants

Filstorage is a specialist supplier to the Merchant industry with a focus on maximising storage and display efficiency. We can help you get the most out of your showroom, warehouse and yard by optimising your space.

We are a leading supplier of racking systems, shop fitting, mezzanine floors, parts bins, access and handling equipment for Builders Merchants. We are also the UK's leading supplier of wire storage 'filplastic' baskets!

The vast majority of our business since our inception in 1993 has been working with Merchants. As specialist suppliers to Builders, Plumbers and Timber Merchants, we have a huge range of builders merchants products, expert knowledge and a real understanding of the builders merchant industry, providing a first class service - every time.

Over the last three decades, we have worked with just about every merchant from independents to national groups.

We are proud members of the Builders Merchants Federation, NMBS, The Institute of Builders Merchants and a SEMA Approved Supplier.

SEMA Approved Distributor

The SEMA Distributor Company (SDC) qualification indicates that a company is dedicated to  the supply of quality storage equipment. To become part of the SEMA Distributor Group (SDG) the company must demonstrate a high level of commitment to safety standards, work to industry codes of practice and be regulated by a random audit. We most recently scored 120/122 on our most recent audit putting us in an elite category of distributors.

Cutting corners on rack safety could cost you much more in the long run. We strongly advise you use a SEMA approved company for any racking purchases or installations. All of our installation teams are SEIRS (Storage Equipment Installers Registration Scheme) certified, so you can be assured that you are dealing with a competent company that is regularly audited by an independent and external process.

Why choose Filstorage

Showroom, Warehouse & Yard Solutions

Our storage and display solutions are designed to help you get the most out of your space. We have worked with a wide range of companies and helped optimise their sites. Whether you're looking to rejuvenate your showroom or are looking at opening a showroom, we can help you. We have over 30 years' experience within the Builders' Merchant industry.

We can supply everything your branch requires; one plastic bin or a complete refurbishment. Over 80% of our business comes from builder’s merchants so we fully understand the industry and know the best way to store and display all the weird and wonderful products they supply.

Apart from the showroom side we are also happy to advise on yard and warehouse layout and have seen a huge increase in the demand for mezzanine floors over the last couple of years. If required, we also provide a full installation offering with our in-house Projects team overseeing the process. Our installation teams are all suitably qualified and we only use SEIRS trainer installers for racking.
