Creative Strategist


We are problem solvers. We are solution providers.

On any given day, for any given business or organization, Spacesaver works to solve storage challenges. There are plenty of scenarios, but on a daily basis we, along with our local distributors, use our storage and shelving solutions to assist with:

  • Storing the history of the world
  • Creating safe, secure ways to hold police evidence, weapons, and gear
  • Equipping athletic teams with configurable storage to store helmets, cleats, pads, sticks, balls, and bats
  • Designing storage solutions that open up libraries and create study spaces, computer labs, meeting rooms, and more
  • Organizing sterile storage in an efficient way for hosptials
  • Doubling pallet positions and space for SKUs in large warehouses
  • Keeping our military ready and active by organizing weapons and gear for garrison and the field
  • Contributing to open office concepts and hoteling trends by reducing the storage space needed for files

We reside in the world of storage everyday. We see the beauty in the intangible things—the organization, safety, security, and efficiency that the right storage solution can bring.

Stick with us, and you’ll find that storage—and the space it creates—is anything but boring.
