Our history

Steely Products was set up in 1970 by Frank Richardson, who took his background in metalwork and envisioned new ways to save time and improve efficiency in the workplace. This started with trolleys to move a variety of awkward products, and quickly expanded to packing tables, storage racks and a variety of other timesaving items. The difference between Steely and others was that Steely designs incorporated customer specific needs. Products were purpose-made to customer operations.

At the time, it was relatively unorthodox to use metal rather than plastic or wood to make trolleys in some industries, and the trolleys themselves came to be known as ‘steelies’, giving rise to the company name.

All these years on, Steely is supplying customer with purpose-made trolleys, table and metal products economically – meeting all expectations.
