Leading European storage company, Stow International, is expanding its presence in the UK with the establishment of a new company aimed exclusively at the UK distributor market. Called Kardex Stow Direct and based in Aylesford, Kent, the company will hold approximately £250,000 of the most popular Stow components at its extensive warehouse facility located in the Midlands.
Kardex Stow Direct is being managed and run by Howard Piper, one of the most respected and longest serving individuals in the storage industry whose knowledge stretches back over 40 years. He will use his experience and expertise of the distributor market to provide distributors with his first-hand knowledge and support.
In the UK, Stow has grown into a major force in the end-user market, achieved through hard work, determination and through having access to superb quality products manufactured in Belgium by Stow International, one of the leading manufacturers of storage equipment in Europe. Established for over 30 years, the Stow Group has built its reputation by utilising fully automated manufacturing to ensure quality products at cost effective prices.
Commenting, Frank Huygevelde, Managing Director, Stow UK says: "During the past few growth years we have recognised the need for a dedicated distributor department in order to properly understand this market and respond quickly and professionally to all enquiries. We are confident by separating these two areas of our business (end users and trade customers), we can enjoy further expansion in both areas".
Kardex Stow Direct will be exhibiting its extensive range of pallet racking; drive-in pallet racking; longspan shelving and light-duty shelving on stand 20B75 at the IMHX exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham from the 16th to the 19th November.

The new company will be utilising Stow’ expertise to provide distributors with customised, creative engineering, flexible system solutions and the assembly of warehouses to high specifications.
