    Our Story

    Like many kiwi companies, Storepro’s beginnings were humble. Starting out in a spare room at his house, Aaron Young established Storepro in 2004 with a clear goal in mind – to provide complete racking / storage solutions that improve business productivity.

    But that was just the start...

    Since day one, we’ve strived to live up to the ‘pro’ in our name. To be a business that leads the way in innovative and customer-focused storage systems. One that’s uncompromising in its quality and safety standards. Yet, a business that’s personal and approachable too.

    It’s an ethos that still shapes the way we do business.

    “Innovation has been the key to Storepro’s success. I realised early on that we needed to do more than just flog steel. Anyone can do that. The objective was always to provide racking solutions that made our clients more productive – increasing their storage and flow efficiencies through simple, compliant and clever warehouse fit out, design and technology.”
    Aaron Young, Director, Storepro Solutions Ltd

    Operating with those founding principles in mind, Storepro has grown to become New Zealand’s largest privately-owned pallet racking and industrial shelving company. Our client list is extensive, covering a full spectrum of industries from 3PL’s to food to factories, and we’ve been involved in thousands of major storage projects. We take pride in knowing that many of our clients have been with us for years, growing their business alongside ours.

    There’s a few more of us now too. Today, our team has over 40 staff who offer more than 200 years of combined industry experience. We have four offices throughout the country, ensuring extensive coverage throughout Auckland, Waikato, Central Nth, and the South Island. More recently, we’ve gone beyond our shores, supplying and installing pallet racking for clients throughout the greater Pacific region.

    And yet we think you’ll find we’re still the same approachable and down to earth kiwi company that Aaron began back in 2004.

  • Our Approach
    Our Approach

    When it comes to warehouse racking and storage, we know our stuff. Since 2004, we’ve been an integral part of hundreds of major projects, solving our clients’ big issues, and helping them operate at their most efficient.

    No matter how complex your project, how many constraints you’re working within, the size of your space, or the number of pallets you need to store, we’ve got the experience and the products to help you.

    Tailored to your needs

    At Storepro, we don’t do cookie cutter. We know that each project is unique, which is why we always provide a tailored and personal approach.

    Full end to end service

    Our end to end service ensures every detail of your project is carefully managed, that all your requirements are facilitated and that the project is delivered on time and on budget.

    Our complete solution includes initial consultation, design, full project management and installation. We’re also able to provide supply chain consulting and can even assist and guide you through the consent process.

    “Auckland Harley Davidson employed the services of Storepro for our Warehouse relocation. They made what could have been a really difficult time relatively stress free, as they were very organised and communicated very well. The job had to be relocated in stages and was completed when they said it would be and to the agreed price.”  Ray Pratt | CEO | AMPS
    A long-term partnership

    We don’t forget about you once your racking goes up– many of our clients have worked with us for years, expanding and altering their storage solution to meet the changing needs of their business.

    Through our audits and maintenance team, we’ll also ensure your storage solution remains safe throughout the years to come, identifying any concerns and ensuring damages are quickly sorted before they become a major issue.

    Commitment to health and safety

    At Storepro, we’re committed to health and safety, not just for the benefit our employees, but for yours too. This includes:

    • Conducting a full risk analysis at the start of each job
    • Completing all relevant site inductions
    • Ensuring staff on-site are qualified in Working at Heights
    • Ensuring staff are fully licensed before operating machinery
    • Providing all on-site staff with personal protective clothing

  • Why Choose Us
    Why Choose Us

    At Storepro, we know that the right storage solution can make a huge difference to your warehouse’s efficiency, maximise the capacity of your existing storage space and improve your bottom line.

    Our racking systems are helping many of New Zealand’s top companies. They could be helping yours too.

    Paving the way since 2004

    In an industry that was renowned for simply ‘flogging steel’, Storepro came along in 2004 and changed the game. Our early commitment to providing racking solutions that improve business productivity has been at the core of our success, and our clients’ success too. As an innovative company, we’ve always got an eye on future trends, so you can be sure we’re already thinking up new and better ways to do things.

    Proudly kiwi owned

    We’re proudly kiwi owned and operated, so we know our local market better than anyone. We focus the vast majority of our efforts right here in NZ, so our products, solutions and services are all tailored to the needs of local businesses and government regulations.

    Nationwide coverage

    Through our four offices across the country, we have extensive coverage throughout Auckland, the Waikato, the Central North and the South Island. Regardless of where you’re based, there’s someone local on the ground ready to get you started.

    Full end to end project management

    Our end to end service ensures every detail of your project is carefully managed, from concept, through to design, installation, consent and then on-going audits and maintenance. Our team of experts have over 200 years of combined industry experience, and we have our own specialised installation team on hand to ensure everything goes smoothly.

    Large stock holding

    As the largest privately owned and operated business of our type in the country, our 5000m2 warehouse in Penrose holds more stock than anyone in NZ. That means you get faster lead times on all standard product.

    Products that meet your individual requirements

    We source our products direct from factory, so we can fully customise your racking – all loading capacities, product types and quantities, and even colours can be accommodated for.

    Trusted by thousands

    Over the years we’ve installed our storage solutions in thousands of New Zealand warehouses. Our client list includes many of the country’s biggest and most recognised brands, extending from 3PLs, to food to factories and everything in between.

    Buy it or lease it

    We know that every client is different. For some businesses, it’ll make sense for you to buy your racking outright. For others, particularly if you’re handling a product that’s seasonal or if the needs of your business dial up or down throughout the year, leasing may be the better option. Whatever you choose, we take extra care in designing, supplying and installing a storage system that’s just right for your business.

    Committed to your safety

    We take safety seriously. That’s why we’re committed to ensuring our racking meets or exceeds NZ standards for racking design and construction. Best of all, we’re able to deliver a racking solution that’s not only compliant, but that expertly meets the needs of your business too.

    We buy and sell second hand

    If you’ve got old and redundant racking that you no longer require, there’s a chance we can take it off your hands. Through our business, Surplus Racking, we can offer a trade-in service.

    Don’t just take our word for it

    We’ve got a long list of happy clients who have been able to improve efficiency and maximise capacity with our storage solutions. Click here to see some of our case studies.

  • Design & Safety Standards
    Design & Safety Standards

    Storepro Solutions racking system has been carefully engineered and tested to suit the most demanding logistics applications. It is manufactured to the most stringent standards to maximise safety and ensure efficient integration of storage, materials handling and operating systems.

    We offer a large product range that has been independently selected by Aaron Young during regular visits to manufacturing plants worldwide. This ensures that we’re able to provide you with the safest and best quality products available.

    Material and Safety Factors

    All Storepro product is designed with a built-in minimum safety factor on yield of 1.65:1.

    Design Standards

    Storepro's racking was independently tested in Australia and New Zealand in 2013. It meets all NZ Standards: NZS 4203; AS 1170.5; AS/NZS 4600 as well as the Australian Standard AS 4084 / 2012.

    Storepro Beam Connector

    The Storepro Beam Connector is the result of extensive testing on specially developed rigs. It is designed to increase resistance to sideways sway moments and effectively take vertical loads and movements on specially designed high performance hooks. The high performance hooks provide ultimate strength, rigidity and stability within the rack structure. Storepro Beam Connectors are factory fitted with a self locking safety device to prevent dislodgement of the beams from the upright column when subjected to upward forces. The new 'beam on connector' position increases system rigidity and resistance to impact loads.
